About Colby

Hello Students, I'm Colby Hartje and I've been a PGA member since 2008 and have now been teaching golf for over 20 years. I've taught golfers as young as 3 years old and as old as 95 including beginners, intermediate, advanced, college & professional players. I have a wide array of experience and have even been a caddie out on the LPGA Tour. These experiences have helped me become the teacher and coach I am today. My teaching style is one of organized and well thought out customized plans for each and every one of my students to improve and enjoy the game of golf more than they ever have!
