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!

David is an exceptional golf instructor! My wife & I took the Get Golf Ready 1 course @Napa GC. David is really passionate about the game. We could not imagine a better way to get started with golf & give David our highest recommendation!

It was a lot of fun to watch my 8 yr old son discover his love for golf in his first season w/David Knox in the Napa Junior League. He enjoyed himself & grew so much in his skills & confidence in just 5 weeks. Thrilled we found this league!

I participated in Ladies on Course with David @Napa GC. I've had several golf instructors, David Knox especially shines. His teaching points are clearly demonstrated & easily understood. David's humor & zest make him an exceptional teacher.

David was beyond helpful with our family golf lesson. He was informative & able to adapt the lesson to the varying levels of expertise, ranging from beginner to intermediate. He was an absolute pleasure & we all thoroughly enjoyed our time!
