SCRANTON GOLF CENTER is founded, owned and operated by Chris Miller, who
is also the inventor of the CenterClub Golf, which is a teaching device to which you can connect your clubs. It is a device that allows you to build muscle memory for more consistent and better swings.
Chris has over 25 years of experience playing and teaching golf all over the United States. He is a certified professional golf instructor and a PGA Associate Member. He was born in Scranton, PA and lived there for the first 10 years of his life until his family moved to Illinois. From a young age, Chris was dedicated to the game of golf and even received a Golf Scholarship to attend Southern Illinois University. Throughout his professional life, Chris went by many titles such as Professional Golfer, Assistant Golf Pro, Sales Associate, Teaching Professional, Caddy, and Head Golf Professional. He has traveled from the East Coast to the Southern tip of the US to the West Coast to the Mid-West to North Eastern US, multiples times.
But as God would have it, Chris' journey led him back to Scranton, PA where he would use the knowledge he had gained through his many experiences to start and grow a small business that would serve and give joy to the people in the community through golf as the Scranton Golf Pro.
And so, The Scranton Golf Center was established in 2012 in Scranton, PA.
It was first located on 535 Greenridge Street in Scranton PA and operated year round as a full retail store with two simulators. The store held a variety of merchandise such as clothes, shoes, golf accessories, equipment, bags, clubs, and many more. This location remained open for five years.
Then in 2016, Chris was presented with an opportunity to work as a teaching professional at Glenmaura National Golf Club. The Scranton Golf Center was scaled down and shifted into a winter operation offering lessons and simulation usage.
It was moved to 3 W Olive Street in Scranton PA where it remained for three years. After a total of eight years in Scranton, it was moved to the Monroe Plaza in Dunmore, PA for our 2020-2021 season (9th year).
And now after three different addresses, two cities, and almost ten years later, Scranton Golf Center has found a permanent new home at 803 Old State Road, Clarks Summit, PA in South Abington Township. Finding this location was a blessing at the right moment, as the winter of 2021-2022 was nearing.
Scranton Golf Center would not be where it is today without the loyal patrons and friends who followed and supported it's journey from the beginning. You, your love for the game, and your support is very much appreciated. Thank you!
The Scranton Golf Center continues to be your local full service pro shop offering lessons, indoor simulators, club repairs, and club fitting.
