About John

For too long, golf was a game that many thought they would never want to play. It was either too expensive or too hard. "I could never learn to play" is what I heard for years. I have taken over 25 years of teaching in the sports field and made the game a fun and fairly easy game to learn. Of course, it takes many months/years to get better, but what game doesn't. I will give you the basic knowledge of the game and then you can take it from there. I do it with a smile knowing that most people are very apprehensive about learning. I make the game fun. Give it try. I promise you will walk away with a smile.
