Among the many options that we offer are:
- Short game workshops
- Couples clinics
- Parent-child clinics

Every person is unique physically, mentally and emotionally and therefore you can never teach two people the exact same swing, and you cannot teach two different people in the same way. I understand that there is greatness within each student, my job as their teacher or coach is to help them realize this greatness, and help remove any barriers that are getting between them and their full potential. I commit to helping the student become AWARE of what they are doing within their golf swing. Learning can only come through self-awareness. I will also focus on teaching the student what the club needs to be doing to get the desired results- since the club is what they use to hit the ball. As opposed to what they are doing with their body, because those feelings will be different for every player. I will focus on what to do and have the student DISCOVER how to do it.
