About David

My journey in the world of golf began at Cameron University, where I majored in Professional Health/Business Administration. During my college years, I showcased my skills on the NCAA Div II stage, earning the prestigious title of 2 Time NCAA All American after four years of dedicated play.

Transitioning into the professional scene, I started as the Golf Shop Manager at Stewart Peninsula Golf Course in Colony, TX. My commitment to excellence led me to a role as an Inside Sales Rep at Callaway Golf Pre-owned, where I further honed my expertise in the industry. In 2015, I took the position of First Assistant Golf Professional at Cross Timbers Golf Course in Azle, TX, marking a significant step in my career. A true testament to my dedication, by August of 2021, I successfully completed the PGM program, earning my PGA Membership.

With a coaching style described as simple and effective, I have been a guiding force for others looking to enhance their golf skills. Over my impressive 30-year journey in the game, I have consistently helped individuals reach their goals. Now, I extend an invitation to you, offering my expertise to support and guide you on your own journey to elevate your golf game.

Whether you're a seasoned player or just starting, I am here to make your golf experience more rewarding and enjoyable. Embrace the opportunity to work with a professional who not only brings a wealth of knowledge but also a genuine passion for the game. Elevate your game with me by your side – your journey to golf excellence begins here.

Cross Timbers Golf Course

Azle TX


Cross Timbers opened in 1995. Its Azle location is convenient to Fort Worth, Weatherford, Springtown, and Lake Worth. It has grown into a favorite of locals and visitors from all over the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The par-72, 18 hole tract winds its way through the hilly, wooded land next to Ash Creek in the “Cross Timbers” area of north Texas. The design takes full advantage of this unique topography, with multiple elevation changes that create a true “Hill Country” feel. Always in excellent condition, the course features Champion Bermuda greens and offers a variety of challenges. With undulating fairways, natural hazards, strategic bunkering and a variety of greenside collection areas, a round at Cross Timbers will engage and enthrall golfers of all skill levels.
