Don Rourke Professional Golf Instructor
I teach golf at Cary County Club's 100 yards and in practice area. From the full swing to short game and putting, I have helped hundreds of golfers since 1989. I have attended PGA and National Golf Foundation instruction seminars throughout the country. All lessons are aided by video analysis.
I really enjoy working with beginners and golfers trying to improve their current game. Seeing someone improve in this game is truly a wonderful experience.
