He has quickly worked his way through the ranks in the Ocean Reef Club Golf Department and was promoted to Head Golf Professional in January 2017. Michael is very familiar with Florida golf growing up in Boynton Beach and competed in junior golf against now PGA Tour Stars Brooks Koepka and Billy Horschel.

After graduation, Michael moved back to the East Coast of Florida to work as the First Assistant at the Jim McLean Golf School at Doral.

Michael is extremely excited to be the Head Golf Professional at Ocean Reef Club and really looks forward to providing great service for the Membership and building strong relationships with all Members and their guests.


Dave Vihlen, PGA
PGA Teaching Professional

I am a true Florida Native. I played two years at Miami Dade and two years at Florida International with a golf scholarship. I qualified and played in the 1976 U.S. Amateur. I turned pro in 1979, while teaching at Homestead Air Force Base; I taught an officer how to play that had been blinded from a bomb blast... I learned a lot from that experience. My belief about the golf swing is to make the larger muscles lead the smaller ones. Small muscles should react, not dictate. I love the game and my goal is to make the game more enjoyable at all levels of play.  


Evan Jones, PGA
Assistant Golf Professional

Evan’s first season at Ocean Reef Club was the 2015-2016 season where he quickly moved into the role of LGA Coordinator and Assistant Golf Professional. He has continued working with the Ladies Golf Association and looks forward to enhancing their golfing experience for years to come. Evan was elected to PGA Class A Membership in February of 2018 and has been our First Assistant Golf Professional since and looks forward to continuing to grow as a Golf Professional here at Ocean Reef Club.

After graduating from the Golf Academy of America in Myrtle Beach, SC, Evan took a position as an Assistant Golf Professional at Forsgate Country Club in his hometown of Monroe Township, NJ. After spending four years at Forsgate, Evan moved on to the prestigious Metedeconk National Golf Club in Jackson, NJ working under Brent Studer for two summer seasons. Brent’s mentorship led Evan to Ocean Reef Club and he is thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the team here at the Club and learn from Scott and Mike.
