About David

Hello golfers of all playing abilities! I am David Knox, and I'm excited to be the Director of Instruction at Napa Golf Course.

I grew up in Rochester, Michigan, and fell in love with the game of golf caddying at the local country club, Great Oaks CC. My grandfather had a hobby of making golf clubs, and I thought it was such a neat thing to be outside, meet new people, and learn how to play golf using clubs my grandfather made for me!

As a proud member of the PGA, I find the instructional work I do gratifying as I build long-lasting relationships with my students and serve as a coach to help students shape and achieve their own personal game improvement goals.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you take your game to the next level!
