About this pro

I would describe my style as more of an instructor/coach. There will ALWAYS be homework.

I enjoy seeing students learn techniques and then execute them. I also like all of my students to have long and short term specific goals. My goal is for the student to know what to do in every possible situation to give themself the very best chance to hit a good shot, i.e. what to do and the compensations that need to be made at address to deal with the ball above my feet, below my feet, an uphill lie, downhill lie, a flyer lie, the ball sitting down, the ball sitting up, etc....

There is more to playing the game than just having a good swing.

    Nolley has high golf I.Q. Extremely Knowledgeable, patient, & a keen eye to improve swing drastically with few practice drills...

  • Joseph Adams

    His knowledge of the golf swing is top notch. He started me off with the basics to build the foundation and we went from there. When I started 8 months ago I was shooting about 105 now my best round was an 86. He makes you focus on 2-3 key takeaways each lesson which keeps it simple and allows me to get better each week. I would highly recommend this instructor.

  • Greg Maurantonio

    Very good at explaining exactly what you are trying to do and why. Very patient. He gets right to the point and doesn’t sugar coat it. “If you wanna hit the ball correctly then this is what you gotta do...” and so on. Very good at seeing the little things that you are doing wrong and giving you things to work on to fix it. And funny too! Great experience!!!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

After setting the appointment with the student, I will arrange to meet them at Whitney Oaks Golf Club in Rocklin Ca. There is a private area at the back of the range that is all grass, with bunkers, putting green, chipping and pitching area.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I began playing golf at the age of 7. I received a scholarship to Cal-State Northridge in 1993 after finishing 3rd in the state of California at the Junior College Championship.I won the 1991 Kern County Amateur Championship. I played 3 years at CSUN and was always the number 1 or 2 player. I have worked as an assistant golf professional, head golf professional, and as director of golf operations.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I only give 45 minute lessons and the price is $45.00.

It is my expert opinion that 30 minutes is too brief and an hour is too long. Forty-five minutes is the ideal amount of time for a golf lesson.


How did you get started teaching?

I have always been a very good player since I was a kid. This doesn't always make for a good teacher. I know many great players that wouldn't have the first clue about giving a lesson to the average golfer. They know THEIR game and no one elses. At the age of 11 I became a serious student of the game and would go to the public library every chance I had. I would litterally devour every book there about golf instruction. Some of the books that had an early influence on me were "How to become a complete golfer" by Toski & Flick, "Power Golf" by B. Hogan and "The Golfing Machine" by Homer Kelly. "The Golfing Machine" was super innteresting in that it didn'tlay out the Way it simply seperated every possible technique and combination that was physically possible and what the outcome of these combinations would produce. I learned more from experiments with all different kinds of techniques on the driving range in High School than I learned anywhere else.


What types of students have you worked with?

All of my students are over the age of 9. Students under 9 should be shown a proper grip, stance and posture, then told to swing as HARD AS THEY CAN while always keeping their balance.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure the instructor explains not just what to do, but also why it is necessary and important. Students grasp concepts and techniques better when they know the WHY and not just the how.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should consider the amount of time that they will need between lessons to work on what was taught during the lesson. This is especially important if they are trying to stop doing a particular technique and start doing a different technique.
