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

At our Academy, I stress beginning with sound fundamentals and quite a bit of Short Game intsruction.  For the more advanced Juniors, we move our focus to course management, strategies, and tournament confidence. 

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

Our Owner, Dale Claussen, is a 17 year Class A PGA Professional, 8-Time TOP 100 Junior Golf Instructor, and 2-Time TOP 40 Instructor under the age of 40 in the USA.  We also are proud that we have sent 12 players off to College golf on scholarships in the past 9 years.  In 2017, we boast 7 additional students from our Academy that will be playing golf in college next year.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching golf in 1993 in South Florida as an Apprentice for World Famous and TOP 20 Instructor, Peter Kostis, then worked at the exclusive Dave Pelz Scoring Schools.  in 2008, I started THE Golf Academy of North Florida.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with Students of every experience and skill level.

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

Parents/Students need to find an Instructor with total passion for their craft and with the experience to take that student to their next level. Also, finding an Instructor with a proven track record of developing students from beginner to expert is very important too..
