    John was overall - EXCELLENT. He was patient, clear with his communications and really taught me how to get myself setup with golf. Before meeting with him, my form was off and he helped me fix that as well as other fundamentals I needed help with. He was extremely professional and had a way of making it fun! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for golf lessons - young or older.

    Working with John was amazing. I have enjoyed golf for many years, but recognized my game was not improving so I signed up for a (very affordable) series of lessons with John. John thoughtfully and methodically reviewed the fundamentals of driving, pitching and putting. The improvements were instantaneous. John has a very kind, encouraging and occasionally humorous approach to providing guidance. Whenever I play golf going forward, I expect to hear his voice in my head saying, “That wasn’t ALL bad.” If your playing skills have plateaued, or you are just starting out, I highly recommend signing up for some lessons with John. You won’t regret it.

    Coach John really knows his stuff. He was able to help me fix certain components of my swing while also explaining why I should fix certain pieces and what those fixes will do to the actual ball flight. By explaining to me not only what to do but why, I am able to fully understand the swing and then I am able to work on it while I am on my own as well.
    John is super friendly and one of the best coaches I have ever worked with. Look forward to working with him again.
