Ron is professional, personable, and very knowledgeable about fitness, the golf swing and the game itself. On the range, he's great at breaking down a swing and giving you information you can understand, absorb & execute, helping you maximize your ability (regardless of how limited that may be, like in my case). As a player, he understands how to manage a course and is great at showing you how to work your way around and play to your strengths, lowering your scores. He does the same with your diet and exercise regimen (or lack thereof). Small tweaks here and there that build upon each other, helping you feel and perform better than you thought possible - not just in golf but in life. SO happy I found top caliber coaching with Ron - such a deal!

I just had my first golf lesson with Ron. I like his approach to analyzing my swing and showing me ways to improve and giving me specific things to work on. I plan to continue with the lessons on a weekly basis. I expect, with Ron’s help, to see my scores go down by several strokes!

I'm a single digit handicap and have been having problems making good contact with my woods. Ron saw my problem after only a few minutes of watching me hit balls and gave me the solution. I highly recommend him as he understands the golf swing really well.

Never ever stepping foot on a Golf Course before,Brian made it very easy to learn the Basics and Fundamentals of Golf. Just a couple of more lessons i'll be on my way competing with friends and family on the Golf Course. And this is coming from a Sicilian. I highly recomend Brian 10 stars.

First lesson of my life happened today with Brian. Fantastic! I should’ve hired Brian years and years ago so I wouldn’t of had the bad technique and awful play wasted lots of money and headaches. I will continue to take lessons to keep improving.

Great first lesson. Brian is very "low key." He doesn't try to completely change your swing. He found a couple of things to tweak, and I will continue to work with him until I get them figured out.

Tim started out by asking me questions about what I think about a golf swing. He got me to articulate some things I had thought about but never put into words and some things I had never thought about. He showed me another lens for looking at what is happening in my swing and why. It was, simply put, about the body following the mind. Tims philosophy on the golf swing is to work on swing mechanics away from the ball with the goal of winding and unwinding the body and allowing natural movement of the club in a pendulum-esk motion. Then when at the ball, there should only be one "swing thought" in the mind and the body should be relaxed so that it can reflexively follow the minds intention; which is set by the swing thought. I found I had two great results after the lesson: 1) it worked such that I was consistently hitting the ball better and could identify what was off when I missed a shot and 2) the feeling of hitting the ball was so much more enjoyable in my mind and body. I intend to continue to go to Tom for instruction and will also have my girlfriend get some beginner lessons from him.

Tim is a great teacher. I came to him as a true beginner in golf and now play on a weekly basis 4 years later. From the basics of my the stance and grip to tools and techniques to practice away from the ball, his advice has grown with my game and I always benefit greatly having a lesson with him. Tim always brings it all back to my swing thought, allowing me to simplify my game. He's a very positive and energetic teacher. I highly recommend Tim Parun if you want to get out of your head and into the game with great results.

Had my first lesson with Tim and it went very well. I liked the way he broke down the mental aspect of the game as well as the physical. I would recommend him as an instructor.

We have had such a wonderful and positive experience with Pat Diaz. My son attended one of his golf camps this summer and has taken a few group lessons with him. In just a few weeks he has brought his game up so many levels. My son so enjoys working with him because he is so positive and encouraging. We have been so impressed with his passion, professionalism, and golf knowledge. In addition, he is very effective in working with all diferent skill levels in group settings. We are so thankful to be working with him to help advance my son's game, and look forward to working with him much more in the future!

From day 1, Pat has given me great tools and goals to work towards. These are things I can also practice on my own in between lessons. I would definitely recommend him and his classes.

I had the opportunity to have a couple lessons with Mr. Smith( Brian). He is very knowledgeable about techniques and relating them to your swing specifically. His expertise in golf equipment is matched by few and he spends time in helping you to understand what he teaching you about the golf swing and equipment. Lastly, Brian has an excellent personality and is a gentleman. You would be well served to book a lesson with this golf professional.

It was about a year ago when I decided I needed something new in my life and considered taking up golf. I have known Christy Erb for a few years, and she had often mentioned to me that I should take golf lessons with her, give it a try, so the decision was made and I started my lessons with Christy and in truth, had no idea what I was in for… Golf, as many know (and remind me) is an unforgiving game – filled with inconsistencies, unpredictable outcomes and requires a physical form that is unlike any other sport, in other words, you can’t simply just walk up to the little white ball and hit it, because that doesn’t work. Not like Frisbee or football, hitting that white ball with a long club can be the most frustrating act and without any means to an end. When I began my lessons with Christy, I slowly started to realize that this was going to be the challenge of a lifetime, yet Christy has been there to guide me, patiently, where her lessons, starting from the more basic moves of the grip to progression of changes in the swing and stance, are conveyed with clarity, good humor and encouragement. I could be having the worst day with my lessons, where nothing is connecting, and Christy will find that one bright spot in an otherwise dark lesson and help me put it back into perspective. Very encouraging, supportive, just what a student needs.

From our first lesson that I got the chance to work with Christy, I have seen and experience a tremendous progress on my golf swing and my physical and mental ability. Christy has been able to be digest my flaws on my golf swing to best improve my golf swing. In every lesson that we get to work together I have seen the progress that reflects on my golf game and my handicap. From the short game, putting , shipping to the long game my time and experience in the golf course has improve and I’m able to enjoy the game even more. Christy takes time to look at every detail as we make progress with the golf swing, Christy strives on discipline and commitment to make improvements in the golf swing. With her knowledge and experience in the game, If you put the time and effort to improve you will see positive results I have enjoy every lesson that I had with Christy. Oscar K.

If you are looking to find a golf instructor who will take you to the next level, your time spent with Christy will be an investment. i have the pleasure to be Christy's student on and off for the past twelve years. I started out shooting in the high 90s low 100s. Christy's instructions have done wonders to my game. I am currently an 8 handicap. Christy incorporates her LPGA tour experiences into her teaching philosophy. Christy is extremely effective adapting the blend of technical and feel approach to teaching. Not everyone learns the same and this is where my lessons have been fruitful. I can describe that when you learn from Christy, you will be learning a modern swing, a swing you can keep for years to come, with much less moving parts. Are you ready for an adventure?

My wife and I are doing a couple's lesson with Gary and we've already been through a couple of months of lessons. So far, things have been beyond expectation. Gary has been extremely accommodative and responsive with scheduling. On the range, he's been very friendly, professional, and most importantly skilled as an instructor. We have a long way to go, but feel we are in the right hands. Thank you Gary, we have been fortunate to find you on thumbtack.

My students get immediate results. They can't believe they can play as good as they do. I take in to account each persons personality and physical abilities and show them how to maximize both. I don't believe in a cookie cutter golfer because each person is different and wants different things from golf. I make the golf swing so simple that it's easy to remember and repeat.
