Tennis Professional Charlie Fischer joins the Hidden Dunes Tennis Center as the new Director of Tennis. After 27 years as the Tennis/Marketing Director of Golf at the Chattahoochee Country Club in Gainesville, Ga, Fischer moved to the Emerald Coast as joined our Head Tennis Professional Renee Broxson to lead one of the best tennis programs in the Southeast.

With extensive experience in tennis and golf, Fischer is a certified USPTA-Elite Pro, PTR and a PPR Pickleball Coach. A graduate of Long Beach State in California, Fischer has achieved USPTA National ranking #4, Men’s 35 Doubles and was a USTA 45 National Doubles Consolation Winner. A military veteran, Fischer is also a four-time Air Force Base Champion and USAF All-European Tennis Team Champion. As a past USPTA Tester for new teaching professionals, he enjoys tennis instruction and will continue this focus at Hidden Dunes Resort.

Fischer will be supported by the Hidden Dunes Tennis Center team, including Head Tennis Professional Renee Broxson who has been with the resort for more than 15 years. Pro shop attendants, Lori McCory and Jean Carter, will be responsible for scheduling court time, registering participants for clinics, arranging like-level game matches and pro shop merchandise sales.

Along with Broxson, Fischer will offer private and semi-private lessons as well as coaching for women’s teams and mixed doubles. Fischer also plans to continue the “You, Me and a Pro” option, which is well-suited for groups of three and provides casual instruction during the match. Seasonally, Fischer and Broxson will offer tennis clinics and are working toward a summer tennis camp for students. Fischer also plans to bring a Tennis Pro Am to Hidden Dunes Resort later this year.

Among his first initiatives, Fischer is upgrading the Rubico Clay courts. The update will include laser grading on all five tennis courts, resurfacing with new clay and replacing the nets. In addition, the Tennis Center now includes three pickleball courts and Fischer is certified PPR for pickleball instruction.
