Cynthia came to Salt Lake for a golf tournament in the 1990’s and read about Park City in the hotel magazine. She and some of her competitors decided to come up and have dinner on Main Street. It was Autumn and the colors were perfect and she couldn’t help but fell in love with our little town. She moved here the next Summer!
Cynthia was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee then she moved to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and spent 20 years there. It was in Arizona that she started her golf career.
She is a member of the LPGA and is a golf professional. She has been one of the Golf Professionals at the Park City Golf Course for a very long time and in fact, she was the FIRST female golf instructor in Park City! One of her favorite things about giving a golf lesson is watching the changes and progress as her students achieve their goals and “get it”.
She is a founder and director of the Playing For Life Foundation, a local non-profit in Park City that raises money for Breast Cancer Research, free mammograms within the community, survivor care, and retreats. They play 100 holes each year on the Promontory Golf Courses and this speed golf tournament as well as other events help to fund raise for their foundation. Their goal is to find a cure in our Lifetime! She also stays busy with her company Brown’s Vacation Home Management and Concierge.
She was one of the first Promontory members. She saw the vision early on and knew this would be a very special place. One of her favorite memories of Promontory in the early days is she could play 18 holes in 48 minutes – no one was around! She’s happy to be a part of such an amazing community and loves that all of the best people have ended up here.
She has raised Malamutes for over 34 years and Maia (pictured above) is her current Mal. Cynthia rescued her four years ago. You may see them out enjoying the Promontory trails so be sure to say “hi”! Golfing, swimming, hiking, and snowshoeing keep her busy during her free time and she also loves music and cooking.
Each day Cynthia is thankful to be a part of the Promontory and Park City communities. One of her favorite quotes by Elenor Roosevelt sums up her life perfectly, “Happiness is not goal…it’s a by-product of a life well lived.”
