Katie Fulton is a USGTF Level III member from Five Farms, Lutherville, Maryland. Since Katie Fulton’s USGTF certification in 2009 at Kissimmee, Florida, the grass has not had a chance to grow under her feet. She became one of the head golf professionals with the Peoria, Illinois, Park District in 2009, and in 2011 took a job with a sports marketing firm in Rock Island, Illinois. In September of 2011, she moved to Nairobi, Kenya, where she taught golf in the program, Kids Golf for Kenya. After a serious bout with typhoid fever, she returned to the United States and began working for the Fon du Lac, Illinois, Park District as a professional for Quail Meadows and Fon du Lac Golf Courses in East Peoria, Illinois. She helped them establish junior golf programs with the Kids Golf Foundation and Hook A Kid on Golf, before being offered a job with Baltimore Country Club. She accepted the assistant golf professional position in March 2013 with the renowned Baltimore Country Club in Lutherville, Maryland, where the East course was designed by the noted American architect, A. W. Tillinghast, in 1898. When Fulton was four, her father put a golf club in her hands, and by the age of six she was competing in the National Little Peoples Golf Tournament in Quincy, Illinois. When she was ten, she qualified for the World Junior in San Diego, California, by winning several large junior tournaments in the Midwest. Fulton had a fine amateur career and competed in Futures Tour and LPGA Tour events as an amateur. She narrowly missed getting her LPGA card at the Dinah Shore Course in 2005. Fulton loves to play golf, but her passion is making the game more enjoyable for people to play through instruction and encouragement. She loves introducing kids and adults to the game. She is an extrovert and gets her energy from being around people. She worked as a business manager for over ten years, and her certification with the USGTF allowed her the confidence and knowledge to pursue her true passion.
