About David

Became a PGA Golf Professional in 2007.

I offer private/group/golf course playing lessons for members and non-members of all ages and playing abilities.

I am a PGA Certified Teacher and Coach as well as a Certified Titleist Club Fitter. I use the state of the art GC2 (Game Changer) Launch Monitor. The GC2 is an excellent tool for providing feedback during lessons, for club fitting, and a great tool to validate your existing set of clubs. Upon your request, I can also video your golf swing and we can see what is going on during the golf lesson.

Each lesson is a course in life with some laughter on the links. He conveys the complexity of golf into an elementary understanding of the game

Since the golf lesson, I am making better contact with the ball and my shots are straighter and longer than before. Thanks very much appreciate your help. Regards, Jim Thornhill

The instructions were valuable, because they were clear and simple, presented in an enjoyable manner. The next time I make a good pitch shot I'll remember it was because of your lesson. Ed Glister

Dave used his excellent communication skills with technology support to explain effective techniques that are now my correct basic habits. Dave's skills make him a most highly valued instructor.
