Molly Fullerton, LPGA Apprentice

Assistant Golf Professional| 520-917-3781 | mfullerton@saddlebrooke.org


Molly began playing golf in her early 30’s when she was a police officer in Seattle and immediately fell in love with the game. She retired early from the Seattle Police Department and began working at golf courses while waiting for her husband Randy to retire from the Seattle Fire Department. Randy and Molly moved to Tucson in 2012 and found their home in SaddleBrooke.  Molly has been a valuable member of the golf staff here at SaddleBrooke One since December 2012 and has over 22 years combined working in the golf industry. She has steadily progressed in her responsibilities over her time here and for the last several years been responsible for all of the merchandising functions within the Golf Shop.


It is exciting to see someone use their love and passion of the game of golf to open new doors. Molly has used that passion to recently pass her “Player Ability Test” and become an Apprentice Member of the Ladies Professional Golf Association.
