Director of Instruction
Moore's Mill Club
With well over 20 years of experience on the links, MMC could not be more excited to have Andrew’s playing and teaching expertise. “I personally would like to thank Jimmy & Billy Cleveland, Greg Kebe and John Karabasz for this amazing opportunity to be Director of Golf Instruction at Moore’s Mill Club. I look forward to working with each member and helping them achieve their golf goals.”
Andrew was the Associate Head Women's Golf Coach at Auburn University for the past 6 seasons. Pratt’s most recent year (2018-2019 season) with the program proved to be a momentous year, with the Tigers finishing tied for third at the NCAA Championship after reaching the semifinals of match play. Within the same season, Pratt helped the Tigers make it to the semifinals of the SEC Championship, finished fifth at the NCAA Auburn Regional and secured two titles - the Battle at the Beach and the Shootout at Shoal Creek. With player development being one of Pratt’s primary responsibilities to the program, the same season saw four separate Auburn players win individual titles. This being the most in a season since 2011-2012.
Pratt's own professional experience on the links includes four years on the Nationwide Tour (2004-07) where he compiled five Top-10 finishes and was runner-up at the 2005 Xerox Classic. Additionally, he was the 2004 and 2005 Tennessee State Open Champion, the 2004 Tennessee State Amateur Champion and qualified for the U.S. Amateur Championship four years in a row (2000, 2001, 2002, 2003) and the 2004 British Amateur Championship
Just prior to his time at Auburn, Pratt was the Head Women’s Golf Coach at Tulane University, where he led the Green Wave to one of their best seasons in the history of the program. A Conference USA title, a school best runner-up finish at the NCAA East Regional and a school record ninth place finish at the NCAA Championships were just a few accomplishments Pratt helped the team to achieve. During his time with Tulane, the Green Wave set 11 team or individual single season and career records. Those two successful seasons led Pratt to being named the 2013 Conference USA Coach of the Year.
Originally from Bartlett, Tennessee, Pratt attended the University of Tennessee where he played college golf from 1999 - 2003, lettering all four years. During his years at Tennessee, Pratt competed in the 2000 and 2003 NCAA Championship, earned All-SEC Second Team honors in 2002 and was named an All-American Academic three times. In 2004, he received his undergraduate degree in Sport Management.
Utilizing his collegiate and professional experience, Pratt soon became an immediate asset to his alma mater. Named the assistant coach of the Lady Vols Golf Team for three seasons, Pratt’s main role was to help with the players short game, which was one of his biggest strengths during his collegiate and professional years. With his guidance, the Lady Vols made three consecutive NCAA Championship
appearances and won four regular season tournament titles.
Andrew is married to Sara Buff Pratt, who is also a University of Tennessee alum. They are proud parents of two sons, Cooper (12) and Weston (8), and two daughters, Grace (7) and Charlee (4).
