While earning his degree from Texas Wesleyan University, Ash was able to pursue his passion by playing for the Rams Golf Team for four years. He served as the PGA professional for several golf courses, locally The Pointe. He was also the founder and former owner and operator of Turf’s Up OBX. In addition to passion for golf was his passion for flying. Ash was proud to mention he obtained his pilot’s license before his driver’s license. Always with a smile on his face, the most important thing in his life was family. Ash took great pride in coaching his sons’ baseball teams.
