About this pro

Highest quality golf instruction to students of all ages and skill levels at a beautiful nine-hole public golf course, driving range and Indoor Learning Center. All of my students experience dramatic improvement, based on proper planning, practicing with a purpose and attention to detail. If you want to achieve more consistent ball-striking, a precise short game and lower your scores, give me a call at 4012150776. Guaranteed satisfaction.

Helping people to enjoy the game more by improving their consistency, grooving their swing and honing their short game skills is extremely gratifying as an instructor.

    Beginner and intermediate golfer friendly course, Dave Mcbride’s enthusiasm with his students is the best anyone could experience. I myself and anyone I’ve asked who’s had lessons with Dave would and does agree. Thank you Dave for keeping me in the fairway!
