Bringing over two decades of experience in the golf industry, Sutee got his hometown start as a golf professional in Cincinnati, Ohio. His adventures eventually led him to Maui, where he served as the PGA Director of Golf at Kaanapali Golf Courses for 14 years. In addition to daily golf operations, he worked on events and shows which included the PGA Champions Tour Skins Game and Golf Channel’s former knock-out challenge reality show Big Break. Through the years, Sutee has been fortunate to soak in experiences from golf legends such as Jack Nicklaus, Fred Couples and Greg Norman.
Junior golf is a passion and Sutee stresses the importance of teaching kids. He coached high school golf for 14 years at Lahainaluna HS. "The kids represent the future of our game and their positive experience can carry over into the rest of their lives." Sutee currently serves on the board of the Lahaina Junior Golf Association which helps develop local youth on Maui by giving them more access to golf. "Seeing kids learn and grow through the game of golf is the reward."
