First lesson for my 6 yr old son. Nancy was truly an amazing instructor. She ensured he was having fun the entire time. Great to see how she used fun ways to build the start to great fundamentals. Bravo



Debby & Nancy are talented, generous golf instructors. I love their presence at Emerald Valley Golf Course!

In February of 2008 Nancy lost her husband and best friend who fought a courageous battle with cancer. After several months of being lost in grief she decided to return to golf. This prompted her to seek out some lessons. This is where she met Debby. The two of them hit it off immediately and forged a great friendship. In 2010 cancer took first Debby’s dad, then her brother-in-law, and then she also said goodbye to her mom, all within a period of six months. In 2011, Nancy sold her family home, and bought some property next to a local golf course. In 2012, Debby sold her home and they began to build a home business. As a tribute to their lost family members, they devoted their time and finances to the building of a dream in an effort to keep their family memories alive, and thus became KingWood Key, LLC and The Kingdom of Golf Experience School.
