About this pro

I teach not only the actual mechanics of the golf swing, but also the mental and fitness aspects of golf.  My students include Professional Athletes, toddlers, recreational golfers, student-athletes and golfers with mental/physical disabilities!  I've been a golf professional for over 20 years and have been in the golf industry for nearly 30 years.  Golf is not only my career, but my passion.  Teaching others to better enjoy the game is my greatest achievement.

    I really like Doug's approach in teaching. Doesn't try to make big changes, but little things that are explained and make total sense.

    Doug is a fantastic instructor. He knows how to make the game of golf relateable. I will be back!
