Beth Grace is the Director of Golf at Cypress Run Golf Club. Her position is to oversee the golf operation and establish the Club to be the Premier Private Club in the community.
Beth (formerly Beth Bauer) Grace started playing golf at the age of 3. She was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area, and learned playing the game of golf from her late father, John, who was also a PGA teaching professional. As a junior golfer, Bauer was an American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) All-American from 1993-1998, winning 17 AJGA titles and being named their female Player of the Year in 1997 & 1998. She was a two-time member of the victorious United States Curtis Cup Teams in 1998 and 2000.
This helped Beth earn a college golf scholarship to Duke University, where she was a part of the first women's National Title for Duke. She was an academic and athletic All-American each year that she attended Duke, and decided to turn professional in 2000 after her sophomore year. In 2001, Beth competed on the Futures Tour where she won four tournaments, was named the Player and Rookie of the Year and set a single-season earnings record. This earned a berth to play on LPGA Tour season the next season. In her rookie year, she won the Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year with six top-10 finishes. She played professionally for about 5 years and decided to return 'home' to Tampa to start a family life and finish her education. She now is happily married with a three year old little girl at home, and is a teaching professional at Cypress Run Golf Club in Tarpon Springs. She spends her days teaching others the game of golf just as her father did, and occasionally plays in charity events throughout the year for various causes.
