About Turner

Hello! My name is Turner Acosta. Currently I am the Golf Operations Manager at Wildfire Golf Club in Phoenix, AZ. I am currently on my way (level 2) to finishing my Golf Operations pathway in the PGA.

I have had the opportunity to teach for 5 years. Three of them under Director of Instruction, Matt Keel, PGA here at Wildfire Golf Club. I am absolutely energized to work with golfers of all levels and ages. When it comes to teaching, my first step is to listen and understand what my students want. Whether it's to perform at a higher level in tournament golf, to just getting the ball airborne; I am here to help you get there!

My main swing philosophy follows other successful coaches. Simply put, I believe that Stability = Mobility. Many of times, a proper setup leads to a better ability to turn, balance and create club head speed.

I would love to get to know your game and take you further!
