    I would highly recommend a lesson from Joe. He helped put me in a better spot to get the swing on plane and make more consistent contact. He makes sure you're able to feel what you're trying to do in the swing before you move onto the next step. He has some great drills and ideas to help you get the club on plane and overall improve your swing.

    To say I was nervous about my first lesson is an understatement. I have minimal to no experience playing golf and the few times I have played out I have had zero consistency or confidence in my shots. Upon meeting Joe, he immediately put me at ease letting me know how normal it is to be nervous and not to worry about being good or bad. He explained his approach to teaching and we got right into it. Throughout the lesson, He gave me five very specific fundamentals to focus on...grip, athletic stance, proximity to ball, lifting shoulder on back swing and soft elbow on initial grip. When implementing these tools, I immediately began connecting with the ball and left the lesson feeling confident I could go out and practice. Since then I have gone to the driving range 3 times and can happily say I was able to hit solid shots with 98% of my balls. It's amazing!!! Im so excited and can't wait for our next lesson. I loved how clear and focused his suggestions were. It was a great experience.

    I really enjoyed my lesson with Joe! He broke the swing down into a few steps which made it easy to follow. After only one lesson I am hitting the ball farther and consistently straighter. Yes! No more slice! Most importantly, I am comfortable with the swing he taught me and helped me to understand what I was doing wrong. I highly recommend Joe as your next instructor. I will be going back soon for follow up lessons. Dave D.

    Joe is a knowledgeable instructor who does a great job analyzing your swing. He provides the right amount of instruction to improve the various facets of your swing. I highly recommend Joe as a gold instructor.
