    Wonderful experience. I will go back.

  • Ronald Hileman

    I have taken lessons with other instructors that focused on the mechanics of the swing. Dennis takes a different approach starting with a series of questions to determine how I learn, left brain vs right brain. I liked the results of his approach which freed up my swing and got more balls flying closer to my target line.

    Dennis Murray is an extraordinary golf instructor for many reasons. One reason is everyone that seeks his advice on their golf game gets what they paid for. He always listens to his students and takes their information to help them get what they want. Over the years he has improved my game from being a weekend warrior to having a golf game that will travel because I break 80 most of the time on most golf courses and I'm in my 60's. Having referred many of my friends to Coach Murray, I know for a fact he helped every one of them play a better game of golf. He seems to have the uncanny ability to fix several problems in a person's golf swing by fixing the "right" thing and the rest just kinda happens.' Most of all my friend Dennis Murray cares more about teaching beginners than any great teacher I've ever seen. Entry level teachers teaching entry level golfers is bad for the game. No one needs an expert more than a beginner, but most beginners seem to gravitate to teachers that are beginners at teaching. Won't work out for you. So, if you are a beginner and want to learn right and do it fast, pay the extra money and go to Coach Murray ... you'll be glad you did.

    Dennis Murray is the best golf coach on the planet. I was such a hacker. Couldn't hit ball out of my shadow. In a short period of time with Coach "Murph" my drives were 50 yards longer, irons 20 yards longer and I was breaking 80 all the time. I love holf becsuse of my Coach and great friend "Murph."
