About Ari

Hello! My name is Ari Rieger, and I am a teaching professional and golf coach located in Pasadena, Maryland. I currently serve as the Lead Instructor and Junior Golf Coordinator for the Learning Center at Compass Pointe Golf Courses. I am originally from Mill Valley, California just north of San Francisco. As a multi-sport athlete and baseball pitcher growing up, I did not pick up golf until age 14. I was named Team Captain of my high school team as a junior, made All-League teams three years and won the league championship individual title as a senior. I would go on to play NCAA collegiate golf at Occidental College in Los Angeles, where again I was named Team Captain as a junior.

As an instructor, I believe in an individualized and holistic approach to coaching. This includes incorporating new technologies with old-school fundamentals, health and fitness, course management, and mental game coaching. I enjoy introducing new players to the game, as well as coaching more experienced golfers looking for that competitive edge.
