About Brent

My name is Brent McGrew some know me as "B" or Coach "B" I'm an PGA professional and have been in the golf industry for over 35 years. Needless to say golf is my passion! I still love to play a game with the "boys" but what I really enjoy most is getting people of all ages and skill levels started down their journey in golf. I love the look on the students face when they hit that first ball on the screws and get to feel the SWEET SPOT! In the past few years I have focused much of my attention on youth development and building our local 9 hole course into a family golf course. I am a USKids certified instructor, double goals coach and member of the positive coaches alliance. In 2020 I was awarded Top 50 USKids instructor in the nation and again in 2021. For swing I believe in keeping it simple, a good swing should feel effortless. However the swing is only a small part of golf, turning form into function is much more complex. That's why I Love taking it to the course and learning how to play the game! Please reach out if you need help, hope to see you on the links soon. Keep Swinging!
