About this pro

Mike Mandakas is a PGA Instructor, Coach, and Trainer that has been a member of the PGA since 2005. He works with all levels of players from beginners to Tour Level players. Mike uses the best technology available through video analysis and data capturing to help develop players. Golf Lessons are certainly the most utilized service but other offerings are available to help golfers and athletes in Sports Performance through Biomechanical, Mental, and Physical Training

I enjoy helping others reach short term and long term goals.  Whether the golfer is a beginner or elite player, I enjoy helping them improve and make the game more enjoyable to them.

    Mike is very knowledgeable of the golf swing, works very well with the abilities of the player. He has an excellent equipment and computer technology to chart your swing.

    Mike was wonderful with my 12 year old son. He was a beginner and Mike was extremely patient and had lots of strategies and tools to work on specific skills.

  • Jim Gorney

    Just an overall great experience with mike. He made me feel comfortable as if we’ve know each other forever. Mike explained everything thoroughly and gave reasons why I should be doing what he suggests. I’m very happy and will continue my lessons with mike until my game improves.

    Mike is an excellent golf coach, mentor and role model. I cannot say enough good things about him. My son, who is an avid golfer, starter working with Mike about 3 months ago. Not only has his golf game improved, academically he has become more focused and his overall attitude is much more balanced. As parents we can repeat the same thing over and over and many times it falls on deaf ears. Mike doesn’t just work on the fundamentals of Golf..... he works on the fundamentals of life too.

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

My typical process begins with a short evaluation of the student.  I will start by having my student fill out his section of a golfer profile, then I will fill in the rest during the evaluation and session.  I will check the players physical and golf strengths and weaknesses while finding out what some of his/her short term and long term goals are that will lead into the lesson/session.  After the session I will send a follow up email.

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

I always want my players to have a short term and long term plan.  I would also my students to know what kind of time commitment they want to put forth.
