    Doug Holub is the best golf instructor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He completely changed his own go,f swing a year and a half ago after studying what the best instructors were teaching their students. Doug works with videos of your swing (and you can take a video of him). These videos are so helpful in learning how to swing on plane, turn the face of the cloud correctly thru the swing and maximizing your body without “overhitting”. The result is hitting with more ease, creating club head speed “in the slot”, and creating a natural draw. I can now hit my clubs 10 to 20 yards farther with a draw using Doug’s fabulous well thought through teaching process. Doug is also the coach of Fairfield University’s golf team. Doug is a great and rare find. He also is a great person.

  • Al Perry

    He is very knowledgeable and patient. He has helped me correct and improve several aspects of my swing. We are still working together.

  • Jamieson Kennedy

    Doug did a great job of breaking down the swing for me in a relatable way. I was able to learn while swinging rather than have someone lecture and then swing. I would highly recommend Doug for anyone starting out.

  • Earl Keisling

    Doug is an excellent teacher. He really makes a connection and works with your strengths and tweaks your weaknesses .
