About Gregory

Greg’s passion for golf started in Santa Rosa at the age of seven when he would loop the nine holes at Wikiup Golf Club from morning until night while his older brothers worked his parent’s swim and tennis club next door. As his love for the game continued to grow, he joined the junior membership at Santa Rosa G&CC at the age of twelve. Surrounded by young, talented juniors, he pursued his desire for the sport at a higher level and competed in Northern California junior golf tournaments throughout high school.

After graduating from Cardinal Newman High School, Greg played on the golf team for two years at Santa Rosa Junior College and continued his college journey at the University of San Diego where he represented the NCAA Division 1 team as the #1 player. A week after graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Greg started his golf career working for American Golf Corporation as the Assistant General Manager at Tilden Park GC in Berkeley.

As a member of the PGA of America with service as General Manager, Director of Golf, Head Golf Professional, and Director of Instruction, Greg’s career has taken him to Princeville Resort on the island of Kauai, to country clubs in Los Angeles County, and to golf course developments in Santa Rosa and Santa Barbara. He has always returned home, however, to work in Sonoma County, where he resides with his wife and nineteen-year-old son.

Although Greg has worked all facets of the golf industry, including hosting golf and wine tours through his business, GolfVino, his true passion remains teaching the game. He trained under some of the best golf instructors in the business, including Jim Flick, Jack Lumpkin, Bob Toski, Paul Runyan, Dean Reinmuth, and Rick Smith. Greg is known for his keen eye in swing analysis, excellent coaching ability, and personable communication with members and guests.

I appreciate the manner in which you teach…watching me take a few swings and then basically giving me just one thing to really work on.

Rich Johnson


Thanks for all your tips. I went out and shot an 86 (about 10 strokes less than normal) on the north course today using your tips. All my shots were straight and I made four birdies!!! Things are looking up. Really appreciate it!!!!

Mike Jones


Precise feedback. Encouragement. I’m a female beginner at 70. Greg really pays attention and notices what needs to be adjusted but delivers feedback that’s workable not critical. The video analysis is a great help. He's a gifted teacher!

Georgia Meyer


I found the physical assessment and video lesson very helpful. I learned that I’m actually quite flexible for a 64 year old, and at impact I look nothing like what I imagined! Greg gave me a good start on repairing that position.

Richard Fong


Greg is very knowledgeable of the golf swing and gave some helpful advice. Comfortable, professional environment with state of the art technology - I now understand my swing in a way I had not prior. Recommended to improve your game.
