Introduction: The quote provided is only a round figure, I have discounts that apply to whatever program you choose. Please call me for a FREE golf  swing analysis or visit my website. The Garcia Golf Academy is now an authorized Lynn Blake Certified Golf Instructor. Communication is foremost to learning, and by asking my students their goals, wants and needs, I can better service them. I teach a solid foundation, grip, posture, alignment and the basic laws of geometry. Golf at its core should be fun; my purpose is to increase my students' golfing skills and their enjoyment of the game. I enjoy seeing the look on a students face after they've hit a good shot, won a tournament, or reach a higher level in their game My golf teaching education comes from Gregg Mchatton, PGA (ranked in the top 20 of California's best teachers) and G.S.E.D., instructor of the book "The Golfing Machine" by Homer Kelly. I was also taught by Bruce Hamilton, PGA (ranked in the top 100 best teachers in the USA by Golf Magazine). I am a member of the National Professional Golf Instructors Association (whose sole purpose is to teach golf) and an instructor for National Golf Schools who run over 50 golf schools in America.

First time taking a formal lesson and I couldn’t have picked a better instructor than David. He was easy to communicate and very kind. I will definitely take lessons from him again and highly recommended for anyone who want to improve their game.

Dave is a very knowledgeable professional and easy to communicate with. So far, I had two classes and felt I could break my score below 90 😆.

Just had my first lesson with Dave and found him to be very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. His videos of my grip/swing showed me specific areas where I can improve. I'm looking forward applying what he is teaching me.
