Your Information
What can Stacy help you with?


“My name is Jim Urban and I played on the PGA Tour. I’ve worked with world renowned instructors John Jacobs and Paul Runyan to name a few. I now put Stacy in the same league as the other great golf instructors that I have worked with.”

Jim Urban - Former PGA Tour Player


Since seeing him, my consistency and confidence have been at an all-time high. I even shot a career low of 68, with 5 birdies. My dad also went to see Stacy and after 1 lesson, shot a 72.

Matt Smyers


I've shot rounds in the 70's four of the last five rounds including a 73 and 74 and I am 74 years old. It is obvious to me that he is a real student of the game and he has an uncanny way of transferring his knowledge to the student."

Mike Gooden


"I took 5 lessons with Stacy and wow!!!! I was low 90s to high 80s golfer. After 3 lessons I’ve shot 80 twice and an 81. Just got done with 2 more lessons and I can’t wait to go play. I smell 70's in my future."

Lindel Frater - Former Olympic Sprinter


"Stacy is the man! His use of training aids, along with his ability to communicate a "feel" is second to none. I recently shot a 2 under par 70 at Hawks Creek Golf Club. My lowest round to date."
