Brad Andrews PGA Assistant Golf Professional

Hometown:  Summerfield, FL

A true Central Florida native, I was born and raised in nearby Summerfield, FL. Upon graduating from The Villages Charter School in 2009, I traveled to the mountains of Eastern Kentucky where I attended The University of Pikeville, graduating in 2014 with a Bachelorís Degree in Business Administration and was a 4 year starter in centerfield as a member of their baseball team. My journey with golf began in high school when I joined the Varsity Golf team and later strengthened when I joined The Villages Golf & Tennis staff in 2018. I am currently in pursuit of my PGA Professional Certification and hope to achieve membership into this prestigious organization soon! When not on the golf course, I enjoy spending time with my wife Emily and watching our young son Brody grow, as well as spending time out in the great outdoors!

Jeryl Potter Golf Staff Supervisor

Hometown:  Menominee, Michigan

My husband Jerry and I first visited The Villages in 1998 but it wasn't until 2004 that we fully retired and moved here permanently. Leaving the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (yes, I'm a "yooper") the warm Florida sunshine feels great. After staying busy with all the sports and activities available, in 2013 I decided it was time to go to work for GMS. Interacting with the residents, golfers and co-workers keeps a smile on my face every day.
