Bruce Chelucci is the founder and director of the New Jersey Academy of Golf, which is based at Blue Heron Golf Club. A teaching professional for 25 years, Chelucci is the long time instructor for local South Jersey standout and former NCAA individual champion Joanna Coe, whome turned professional competing in 5 majors and was awarded PGA women’s player of the year in 2019.


Golf is a game that is played outdoors, cohesive with nature, and one that mirrors life in personality and ethics. Over the years, the Academy has helped our students to develop their character and friendships, as well as to develop a healthy sense of competition. Our mission is to encourage individuals to come out of their homes to play a game that will not only exercise their body and their minds, but will also provide them with a lifetime of enjoyment.

Chelucci has worked extensively with golf professionals, collegiate and high school golfers, and aspiring young players. He is equally comfortable in working with professionals and high level amateurs as he is with golfers of all ages and abilities, including beginners.
