Meet PGA Pro Jim Campbell
Jim Campbell, PGA
As the son of a PGA Professional, Jim was introduced to golf and the golf business at a very young age. He played and competed often as a junior, eventually winning the Massachusetts High School Tournament his senior year in high school. He then continued on to Mississippi State University to major in Professional Golf Management so he could follow in his father’s footsteps as a PGA Professional.
After graduating from MSU, he worked at Fox Chapel Golf Club in Pittsburgh, PA, and The Hole in the Wall Golf Club in Naples, FL, as an assistant professional. In 1999, he became the Head Professional at Cape Cod National Golf Club in Brewster and was there for 19 seasons. Jim is now happy to be starting a new chapter at Blue Rock. He is certified by the PGA in Player Development and is looking forward to helping juniors and beginners become lifelong golfers.
Jim has three sons, all avid and competitive golfers. Over the years, he has volunteered in the elementary schools to teach golf and coached youth basketball during the winters. Jim enjoys fishing with his boys, going to their basketball games and playing golf with them.

Greatest Personal Golf Moment: It’s a tie between when I used to play in a foursome with my dad and two brothers and when I now play in a foursome with my three sons. There’s nothing better than family golf!
