Josh is excellent! For a beginner, his instruction is clear and understandable. He makes the sessions fun and has really made an incredible difference, week after week! Highly recommend!

Coach Josh is awesome with my son, Evan. We travel almost an hour to get to Go Golf Academy and it is worth the drive!
