Teaching Philosphy

Learning golf requires an understanding of the fundamentals of the game.   Once you understand them you need to practice on a regular basis to ensure you can perform to your fullest potential

$25 per person per hour.  


The best place to improve your game is on the practice range.  There you can experiment with and modify your swing in preparation for your next round of golf.    The most common errors made while on the golf course are usually a result of either poor decision making, a lack of knowledge or confidence, or simply what I like to call "course mismanagement".

An On Course lesson will help you understand when you might be making mistakes on the golf course that will lead to poor shot making and higher scores.

I usually recommend that you play a few holes prior to your On Course lesson.  You book and pay for your green fee and then simply make arrangements for me to meet you on the course at a designated hole and time.

$40.00 per person per hour (private)

$20.00 per person per hour (semi-private)

On Course lessons include a complete lesson summary with comments, tips and drills.


I have always  believed that the best way to improve your game is to practice.  The best way to improve your shotmaking is to incorporate swing drills into your practice sessions.  Swing drills help to improve your "muscle memory" and help to build a more consistent swing.

 Playing better golf this season means that you understand both your strengths and your weaknesses. Never try to make a shot that you know is beyond your skill level. Instead play smart golf and only attempt a shot if you feel confident that you can execute it.

 A preswing routine allows you an opportunity before every shot to check your set up, get prepared for the shot and to minimize outside distractions. It will also help you to slow down your pace of play and prevent too many mental thoughts from affecting your upcoming shot.
