At Gary Bates Golf Performance we are passionate about helping dedicated golfers reach their goals! I have taught all levels and abilities in my 27 year career. The most important quality I look for in a good student is a teachable spirit and a dedication to improving. In that case, the sky is the limit! I have been fortunate to coach my brother Pat Bates to a successful career on the PGA Tour including 5 wins on the Nationwide Tour! Also, I was Director of Junior Golf and a Lead Instructor at the Award Winning PGA Center for Learning and Performance in Port St. Lucie, Fl where I still teach by special appointment. In addition, I have been the Men's Golf Coach at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Fl where I led them to a 4th place finish in the 1988 NCCA Championship. 

 I understand what it takes to get you to the next level and I will help you get there! I am a Class A PGA member and have two convenient locations in South Florida in the winter and South Jersey in the summer! You can view video excerpts of my instruction by searching "Gary Bates Golf" If you have any questions or I can help in any way, feel free to contact me! I look forward to getting together with you and coming up with a plan to bring your golf goals to reality! I encourage you to book a lesson today and get on the path to excitement!  
To your good golf!
Gary Bates, PGA
