About Nicolas

Nicolas "Cole" McCook is currently a Teaching Professional at the Applecross Golf Academy. Before starting his teaching career, he had a strong junior career through high school and college. He was a 4 year varsity golfer at Downingtown East High School. He attended Grove City College where, during his tenure, he was named two-time Player of the Year and was a part of the first Grove City Men's team to compete in the NCAA Division III National Championship. Having a deep appreciation for golf, Cole's goal is to grow the game as big as possible. His aim is to work to teach anyone and everyone who wants to learn this game.

My wife and I are complete beginners and we booked lessons with Cole. He made it so easy for us to understand the game and learn. We are looking forward to more lessons and ultimately getting out and enjoying 18 holes.

Cole is great with our 6 year old daughter. We drive way out of our way so that she can take lessons from Cole. He makes a point to tell us what to help her focus on as well.
