    The facilities are amazing. Regarding Mr. Curtis, I've only had one lesson, so to early in the process to fairly provide a fair assessment. In fairness to Dave, I like him, he is easy to work with and it seem to be a good fit from my perspective. Mr. Curtis may have a difference view of his new client. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

    David is great. Patient and Knowledge. Excited for my next lesson.

  • Duke Graham

    As a lefty, I’ve always been wary of lessons from right-handers. He was great at showing me some basic. Issues with my swing and never once told me to watch him and then do the opposite. Highly recommend.
