Olivia Bowling, PGA
Head Golf Professional, Belmont

Olivia joined First Tee – Greater Richmond in March 2022, and as the Head Golf Professional at Belmont, she oversees the day-to-day operation of the facility, including staffing, sales, patron relationships, teaching, events, and more.

Prior to coming to Belmont, Olivia was an Assistant Golf Professional at The Country Club of Virginia since 2017. While there, she worked with the PGA TOUR during the Dominion Energy Charity Classic and counts getting to see players she grew up watching – Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Bernhard Langer, Vijay Singh – just 5 feet away among the highlights of her 5-year tenure at CCV.

Prior to joining CCV, Olivia was among the most-decorated golfers in Randolph-Macon College history. By her graduation in 2016, Olivia was the first four-time All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) First Team selection in conference history, twice being named ODAC Player of the Year.

A Class A PGA Professional, Bowling received the P.J. Boatwright Internship at the Virginia State Golf Association (VSGA) after captaining the Yellow Jackets in 2015-16. The Hollows will always hold a special place to Olivia, as it was Randolph-Macon’s home course, while her favorite course is the Ocean Course at Kiawah.

When she isn’t at Belmont, Olivia loves hanging out with her family, friends, and year-old Golden Retriever, Beau. You’ll also find her hiking in the Shenandoah or paddleboarding on the James.
