About this pro

I have been a PGA Member since 1991. I have had the title of Director of Instruction or Teaching Professional for more than 20 years. I am currently the Director of Instruction  at Radnor Valley Country Club which is a private Country Club located in Villanova PA, a suburb of Philadelphia.

I conduct private lessons for men, women and juniors of all abilities. I use the V1 Digital Coaching System for video anylasis as well as the Flightscope launch monitor. I have also designed, promoted and conducted Short Game Schools, Ladies Beginner Clinics. Junior Clinics, Junior Golf Camp as well as a Junior Players Camp which is for or Juniors that play competitive golf. I also conduct on course lessons.


During the winter months I offer winter packages. The packages are conducted outside (weather permitting). Otherwise the lessons are conducted i

at our indoor facility. I also

conduct Golf Schools for my Students, Members and/or Guest at the PGA Golf Club in Port. St. Lucie Florida.

Being a  PGA Golf Professional has given me the opportunity to travel the Country, play great golf courses as well as meet many wonderful people.  For most of my career I have been the Teaching Professional or the Director of Instruction at some great Country Clubs. I love teaching the game of golf.  To see someone learn to play or improve and to see how happy they are is the most satisfying moment for me as a Golf Professional.

    The level of professionalism & preparedness each day focused on each individuals’ needs was exceptional. I improved a lot and more importantly was given tools to continue to improve on my own. Highly recommend!!

    I started taking lessons as a beginner almost 20 years ago. I still have a working relationship with Nelson and my golf game has never been better. I enjoy the game, he taught me to manage my expectations and how to measure risk and reward. Nelson is fantastic if you are looking to learn to play or you are a single digit hc. My young kids have also taken lessons with Nelson and both boys play for their respective schools. Thank You Nelson you rock.
