David is friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. He always has new drills and teaching techniques that help you improve with every lesson. He is an awesome teacher and highly recommend him!

Amy Lingo


David not only has a great knowledge of the golf swing but knows how to individualize for each student. Every student says to a new instructor they want to find more consistency but I can honestly say I’ve achieved that.

I have taken lessons with David for several years and he’s made a huge impact on my game. Above it all, he’s patient, knowledgeable, thoughtful and a pleasure to work with.

John Nadolenco


Our son's love of golf and ability to compete in high level tournaments is because of coach David. David is patient and great at communicating with his students. In short. Great guy. Great teacher.
