About Richard

Rick Altham, a PGA member for 24 years, has a passion for teaching the great game of golf. He has worked at private and public facilities in New England and Florida. He has experience instructing men, women and juniors of all skill levels.

Rick is not a single-method instructor. His goal is to create an instruction plan that is tailored to each individual’s strengths and weaknesses. One of Rick’s main focuses is to determine each student's learning style. Rick believes that students learn best when he can communicate a swing change that each student can understand.

Having a positive lesson experience can improve your golf game and enhance your enjoyment on the course. Rick is looking forward to helping you reach your golfing goals.
