About Nick

Pelican Marsh Golf Club's Director of Instruction can help you develop the golf game you've always wanted. Nick brings to life the art and science of the swing through mentorship by renowned instructors including Andy Plummer, Mike Bender, Bob Grissett, Dan McCarthy, and Hank Smith just to name a few. Nick begins by evaluating your unique set of skills by taking time to understand your goals, commitment level, and physical abilities and limitations. Next, Nick will create an individualized practice plan using the most accurate assessment and the most effective drills and training aids to efficiently work with your inherent assets turning weaknesses into strengths. The end goal for each student is to develop maximum consistency with the swing’s low point, distance, and shot direction which enables them to thoroughly enjoy this great game of golf.

Golf instruction is not just Nick's profession; it is his passion! Nick played on the Division II National Championship Golf Team at Lynn University and continues to participate in local PGA Professional Golf Tournaments. While competing during college, he played and became acquaintances with several PGA Tour and LPGA Tour players including Lexi Thompson. Using this experience as a player and watching other great players, Nick understands that there is more to golf than just the swing and therefore he takes a full coaching systematic view.

I want to thank Nick for helping me drop my handicap index from a 14.6 to an 8.5. I have had many golf lessons in my life, but his methodical style resonates with me and I have been successful in applying his techniques on the course.

I shot under par 8 times this season. I couldn’t have done it without Nick’s extremely helpful instruction. He is truly a great coach.
