Our Instructors

Steve Graham

Steve Graham went to work for Champions Run Golf Course in the fall of 2002 as the General Manager and Director of Golf. His love for the game, his exposure to great players at an early age, his college and professional playing career, and his years working on the 3 major US Tours have given him a unique understanding of the golf swing and how to teach. Steve has taken several golf lessons in his life from many of the top rated instructors in the world, has played golf with several tour players, and has learned through trial and error on his own how to teach the game of golf. Some of Steve’s greatest influences on teaching and playing include: Martin Graham Sr., Martin Graham Jr., Lou Graham, Ron Graham, Harold Eller, Mike Adams, Don Sargent Jr., Bob Torrance, Pete Cowen and Padraig Harrington. Steve is a Class A Member of the PGA of America and is a Certified Ambassador with Michael Jacobs 3D Golf.

Ray Pearce

Ray Pearce was taught the game of golf by his grandfather, Harold Eller, longtime Old Hickory Country Club professional and member of the Tennessee Golf Hall of Fame. After playing football and golf at the University of Memphis and the University of Tennessee at Martin, he turned professional and worked as an apprentice under Richard Eller at Forrest Crossing Golf Course in Franklin and Gene Dixon at Stones River Country Club in Murfreesboro. While at Stones River he completed PGA Business School I and PGA Business School II. In the fall of 1990 he earned his card to play the Ben Hogan (now Korn Ferry) Tour. From 1991 to 1993, his best performance was in the South Carolina Open where he lost in a playoff to Tommy Lehman, the tour’s leading money winner.

In 2002, Ray took the job here at Champions Run to help build and maintain the golf course that we have here today. Ray has helped countless golfers of all ages improve their game while enjoying the process of getting better as well!
