Jon is especially well known as one of the area’s more outstanding instructors adapting lesson plans for all handicap levels and ages. Stutz is an accomplished golfer and participates in many Indiana PGA events.
Jon’s breadth and depth of golf experience includes public, private, resort and recreational courses. His resume includes career stops as first assistant at Indian Hill in Winnetka, Illinois, outside of Chicago; as an assistant pro at Marriott’s Mountain Shadows GC in Scottsdale, Arizona; and as interim director of golf at Club Terravita, also in Scottsdale.
Jon is from Indianapolis and is a graduate of DePauw University, where he was a four-year letterman and two-year captain of the golf team. Twice he was all conference and three times he qualified for the NCAA Division III championships.
Special duties along the way have included coordinating a nationally recognized caddy program at Indian Hill, coaching a high school boy’s golf team, and coaching high school basketball. In the movie Hoosiers, Jon can be seen playing for Holland High against Hickory High.
