About Blake

Blake Jirges is a professional golf coach who gets students to maximize their potential at Coto de Caza Golf Academy. Blake works with committed clients that want to get results and long term change rather than giving the typical golf lesson; constant struggle with changing your swing, no accountability and no consistent communication. He is different and is the complete opposite of your typical instructor. Blake genuinely enjoys each relationship and guides each player on its own individual journey to playing the best golf of their life.

Blake understands the importance of long term development and can see results shift immediately. Immediately you ask? Yes! We have seen results change within a few sessions with all skill levels. Blake will lead you down a path that goes from point A to point Z in his long term development plan that is customized to you. He works on all skills of the game, focuses on you and your current struggles. Everyone has struggles in their development and Blake gets the struggles you have and flip them on its head. He makes you better understand your game especially when he coaches you on the golf course. The on course component is the main ingredient to our results based coaching platform. This is where the magic happens! The results are in all the students and Blake is the perfect person to bring them out.

When Blake isn’t at the course, working towards his players goals, he is with his beautiful family. Adventuring with his wife Cailee and two little girls, Adeline (2) and Juliette (1). They are often heading to Disneyland, finding new places to dine or going on long walks along the Fullerton hills where he resides.

Coach Blake is beyond awesome. He's always going out of his way to help my girls. He takes the time to explain things to them, at their level. He believes in them. But more importantly, my girls know he believes in them.

Blake has taught both our children, Callie and Cooper, not just the rules of the sport, or some of the technical aspects of the game, but he has taught them sportsmanship, perseverance, work ethic, and most importantly, a love of the game.
