  • Dennis D

    Nancy is an excellent instructor. She quickly spotted my swing flaws, explained them through video and gave me practice drills to correct them. Professional, personable and patient.


    Nancy recognized my improvement needs in the basic facets of the game and gave me easy repeatable cues and drills for each

  • Mel B

    Very personable, funny, and easy-going. Great at breaking down the basics and assessing areas of opportunity/focus. I plan to practice what I’ve learned at the driving range and meet again for the next lesson #2.

  • Debra Willis

    As a complete newbie she was very professional, patient and knowledgeable. I am learning from step one and I know I made a good choice with her! I can’t wait for my next lesson!
