About this pro

I've been playing golf since I was 13. I played on the high school golf team. I have worked in the golf industry for 10 years on 2 different courses as Superintendent and Asst. Superintendent for the greens. I passed the  Players Ability Test in 2019. I have held club championship at a local course. I am currently qualifying to play in upcoming Pro-Am events. +4 handicapp average course score is  68-72.   I can fit you for clubs and make adjustments as needed to your clubs.

I also own a landscaping company The Tuff Nurse and offer putting green installations, synthetic  or natural. I have been teaching golf instruction long enough to develop a system that helps you learn the fundamentals fast and begin to see improved preformance after just a few lessons. See my reviews and please review me.

It typically takes 3 weekly lessons to see results and practicing . I offer play along rounds to evaluate for areas that can be improved in your game.  I have several options for locations from golf courses and driving ranges in the area. Prices vary by traveling or if you come to my locations. I am open to discuss other options on playing or coaching for tournaments. I also am fluent in Spanish!

This past year with the pandemic has been difficult on everyone. I am ready to play golf and get out. Thank you for considering me and reaching out. 

I love the game of golf and everything about the golf industry. My goal is to one day play PGA. I need sponsors! That's why I give lessons to work toward the cost of qualifying and getting on a tour. I like helping others learn the game and play their best.

    He has helped me so much. Very knowledgeable and listened to my needs. We are not finished by a long shot, but he has me striking the ball again with confidence. I will definitely keep using Nathan. Hell of an instructor

  • David Smith

    Great first lesson!

  • Evan Katz

    Nathan is incredibly knowledgeable - he corrected my wrists in the first two minutes he saw me hitting balls and suddenly I was hitting better than ever before. Will definitely hire him for another lesson.

How did you get started teaching?

Honestly people would come to me and ask how I learned my swing. How I drove the ball so far. I have worked to prefect my swing and I can help others improve theirs. I enjoy giving tips and helping others to enjoy the game. After helping a few golf friends I was told I should teach lessons. I have developed lessons that will help you improve your game in just a few weeks, some say immediate improvement noted. 

What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, women and men, seniors. New to the game and some have played for years.
