In addition to providing instruction at the Morris County Park Commission Golf Courses he provides his coaching talents to a local High School Co-ed golf team.  His golf team was successful in winning the Freedom Division of the NJAC four times in the last six seasons and the back to back titles (11'-12') was the catalyst for Mike to be recognized as the 2012 Coach of the Year by the New Jersey Herald. Mike also leads our Morris County Park Commission Junior Golf League team out of Flanders Valley for the past two seasons.

Mike also serves on the New Jersey PGA Section’s Junior Golf  and Growth of the Game Committees and volunteers with the New Jersey Golf Foundation to introduce golf to new golfers in the state.   His talents were recognized by his peers as he has been nominated for the NJPGA Youth Golfer Development Award in both 2015 and 2016.  He also has the distinct honor of being selected as a member of the PGA President’s Council on Growing the Game.

 MCPC Junior Evaluation

The MCPC in its continued support of junior golf has vehicle in place for a child that is under 12 years old to experience our golf facilities.  If a player is 12 to 14 years old they can apply for a Junior County Resident card that will get them access to the golf courses.  The Junior Evaluations are in place for that child who is under 12 who plays golf.  Our Professional staff will accompany the junior on a two hole playing experience where the junior will be asked questions about the course and their game. We will not be grading their ability to make a specific score rather to see if the junior is comfortable on the course and making proper decisions.  Evaluations traditionally take place on the course and at a time not to impact the daily play.  Upon passing the evaluation the junior may register in the golf shop for their paying privileges. The under 12 player may play after 2pm Monday through Thursday and after 5pm Friday through Sunday with a paying adult.

Appointments are suggested.  There is a $40 fee paid to the golf shop for the service.  


Carole Charbonnier

Carole Charbonnier, an LPGA Member and former LPGA Tour player (1980-1992) has over 25 years of experience teaching golfers of all levels.  Her teaching philosophy centers around the fundamentals of the golf swing; emphasizing how to hold the club, aim correctly, posture and balance.  Carole has a unique ability to help golfers at every level to improve their game.

 She believes golf is an art form, not a science and her focus is applying the principals of the swing to fit each person's ability, strengths, and weaknesses.  Carole feels she has succeeded when a student leaves a lesson with a better understanding of how to strike the ball in the center of the club and make it fly towards the target!

 Her objective as an instructor is to make the game more fun for golfers at every level and help them lower their score on the course.

 Carole also serves as a Teaching Professional at Anchor Golf Center in Whippany, NJ and for a new program she is calling "Women in Golf" that offers a welcome setting to build friendships and enjoy the business advantages of the golf lifestyle.  Details and dates coming soon!

 We are excited to have Carole on our staff and are pleased to be able to offer private, group, ladies clinics, junior and corporate programs as well as On-Course Instruction programs.  Schedule your next lesson or clinic by calling 201-401-6080 or email Carole for improved golf and a more enjoyable experience on the course is just a click away! Available by appointment.
