Rosie Jones Golf Getaways

ROSIE JONES

ONE of the most popular players in the history of golf, Rosie Jones captured 13 LPGA tournament titles and is one of the top-10 money winners in the history of the women's tour. The 1981 graduate of The Ohio State University played fulltime on the LPGA for 25 years and, in a true testament of both her ability and her passion for the game, she won tournaments a remarkable 17 years apart, taking her first title in 1987 and her most-recent in 2003. Few players maximized their talent as fully as Rosie. Never one of the long hitters on tour, Rosie compensated for her lack of length off the tee with a heart the size of her native California and a putting stroke as smooth as the fuzz on a peach from Georgia, the state where she now resides.

Rosie was a firey leader of seven U.S. Solheim Cup teams, racking up a sparkling 11-9-2 record in the biennial competition against a team from Europe and bringing home 12 points for the American side. When not on the golf course, Rosie loves to dance, fish, work in the garden and play with her dog. At the 2006 U.S. Women's Open, Rosie marked her retirement from fulltime competition by taking off her golf shoes and golf glove and leaving them beside the 18th at Newport Country Club. To show the kind of person she is, Rosie was back at Newport the next day to cheer on her Solheim Cup teammate Pat Hurst in her 18-hole playoff against Annika Sorenstam.

Rosie now works as a commentator for The Golf Channel and is extremely excited about RosieJones Golf Getaways, a venture she hopes will enable her to share her love of golf and her passion for the game with other women who feel the same way. Rest assured that every detail of your golf vacation will be attended to with the same intensity Rosie brought to tournament golf. Rosie Jones. Golf. And you. It's a winning combination.
