CAMERON HILLS GOLF LINKS INTRODUCES JEAN NEWTON-TORRES
Her passion for golf continues to endure.
The return of Jean Newton-Torres to King George will be to the delight of many aspiring golf enthusiasts. Her passion for the sport of golf has now become her full-time occupation as a golf instructor at Cameron Hills Golf Links in King George.  Age or physical condition is limitless when it comes to the Newton-Torres method of teaching.
“If you have it in your mind that you want to learn to play for enjoyment with your friends, you can do it,” Newton-Torres said. “I’ve had students who are in their ’60s who have never played the sport, and they’ve learned to hit the ball.”

Potential clients who’ve dreamed of the perfect avenue to learn the game of golf can now realize their athletic outdoor aptitude through Newton-Torres golf lessons, which are $80 for each series (by appointment, private or group).
“I present the easiest method for everyone to learn —learning to play the game and have fun is what I strive for,” Newton-Torres said. “Everyone wants to hit the ball long and hard; however, like they say, you drive for show and you putt for dough.”
Private ($30) and semi-private ($25) lessons are also available. In addition, golf clinics are $18 for each session, every Tuesday and Saturday, 9-10 a.m.
Beginning on May 4, every Tuesday, 9-10 a.m. and 6:30-7:30 p.m., the price will include one hour of instruction and a bag of balls for each participant.
Clients can reach her at (540) 413-7155 or by e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
As for the convenience of providing instruction at the one of the most beautiful courses in Virginia, Newton-Torres is thrilled.
“I like the golf course here at Cameron Hills, although its not that challenging, it’s the kind of course that anyone can enjoy,” Newton-Torres said.
Her professional career as a comptroller for the federal government lasted 33 years. After working at NSWC, in Dahlgren, where she worked for several years, she boldly embarked on a career as a civil servant for the United States Marine Corps for the next 28 years.
While residing in San Diego, Calif., she lived across the street from a golf course. After taking four golf lessons at the course, Newton-Torres was hooked. Her love of golf would follow her around the world to Okinawa, Japan, where she completed her career with the Marine Corps. While working in Japan, her interest grew, as golf became a part of her weekly regimen.
She is living proof that you’re never too old to enjoy the game of golf. After returning to San Diego, she occasionally worked part-time as a government consultant, but her interest in golf was always present. The head golf pro at the golf course where she initially took lessons realized she had a gift for teaching. A short time later, after coordinating a series of golf clinics, Newton-Torres soon became the golf marshal, an assistant golf instructor at the course.
With the warm weather associated with spring approaching, potential golf enthusiasts may find the Newton-Torres golf lessons tailor-made for their comfort level. Her eight-week program for beginners includes the use her clubs and the proper physical way to approach the ball (stance, feet positioning, knees).
Once the client has experienced the introduction portion of the course on the driving range, they have the opportunity to play 2-3 holes on the course itself.
“I have a lot of patience, and that’s what most people like,” Newton-Torres said. “I have a lot of seniors who wanted to play, but were afraid too.”
Born and raised in on the former Weedonville portion Dahlgren Road, in King George, the graduate of King George High School is elated to back home after living abroad for most of her professional life.
