About Derek

I have been a PGA Class “A” Member since May 2016. I took up the game of golf when he was just 6 years old. Growing up, I played a variety of sports, but while playing golf in high school he decided he wanted to make this great game his passion and career.

I was born and raised in the small town of Dover, Pennsylvania, which sits about forty minutes south of the capital, Harrisburg. I started working at Grandview Golf Course in Dover, PA when I was 15 years old and upon graduation from high school, I was accepted into the Professional Golf Management program at Coastal Carolina University. After four and a half years, I graduated with a degree in Professional Golf Management while also receiving a bachelor’s degree in Accounting.

My experience comes from working internships at clubs such as the Country Club of York, where I worked for my first 3 internships, Bristol Harbour Resort, where he completed his final internship, and Regents’ Glen Country Club, where he worked as an Assistant Golf Professional from April 2016 – January 2017. Over the course of his 4 internships and Assistant Golf Professional position, I was instrumental in helping grow instructional programs. I am K-Vest Level 1 certified, which is the industry’s only human motion learning system. My desire for knowledge on how biomechanics can help the golf swing has motivated me to study more about this subject. I am very excited to be pursuing his passion for teaching and club fitting, full time, at York Indoor Golf & Training Center, where I have been since 2017.

Derek was great, not only did he take a look at my swing, but gave me some great lessons, on what was wrong with my swing.(open face). Derek looked, at every part of my swing, to see what club was best for me.

Chris Raby


Lots of good advice and hands on teaching, which is what my son needs to learn. We will definitely schedule more lessons with Derek! Great experience 👍

Matt Althoff


I'm very pleased with my lessons, Derek did a great job helping with improving my swing, his knowledge and attention to detail was spot on, not to mention his patience.

Jeff Himes


Derek has patiently been helping my golf game. Have been getting better due to his great improvements which he addresses one at a time. I have invested for the 2Nd time in 5 lesson package and it’s been worth every penny with Derek.

Kevin Knapp


I was one of those typical golfers that could hit a great shot, but also hit more less than great shots. Derek worked with me from the base of my swing mechanics to the proper form for a more consistent swing with less “band-aid” fixes.
