About David

I am a third-generation Los Angelino. I grew up with a passion for playing the game of golf and love sharing my passion through teaching. I am committed to growing the game of golf at its roots, making the sport more accessible to all people, and finding ways to make golf more fun to play. I am privileged to coach players of all skill levels and ages, and that includes Adaptive athletes and Veterans living with PTSD and physical differences. My lessons include the full swing and the short game, and I give on-course playing lessons daily. I love being a golf professional and creating an uplifting space in my community that is welcome to all. Book lessons online at

...No exaggeration Dave is the best ever. Not just as an instructor, but as a human being. The time and patience he shows with my son, teaching him to play golf, appreciating his interests is heart warming to see. I love this guy!

If you want to improve your golf game, please see David. After seeing him for 2 months, I went from shooting in the 100's to a 77 TODAY! He's passionate about golf and he cares about his students. I can not say enough good things...

...My son is a competitive junior golfer and has three golf coaches, who all provide a different perspective on the game of golf. Coach David is the golf coach who brings heart to my son's game...

...Dave got me quickly set up with the fundamentals, and after 5 lessons my frustrations changed...I consistently get into the 70's and play to an 8.4 handicap, and I owe much of that to Dave...

Testimonial: can really feel his passion for the game when you're with him. If you're a golf lunatic like me, you love that in a coach. I really enjoy his lessons and just shooting the sh*t with him when I see him.
