I have been taking golf lessons from Dave Garcia for past 2 years. He is a great instructor with passion for the sport. His teaching is easy to comprehend and he has different types of tools to help you improve where you are weak. He is not only a great teacher but a genuine, kind, and sincere person whom I have gained as a friend for life.

For the past 20 years I have taken dozens of lessons from golf pros in an attempt to not only improve but enjoy the game more as well (I suppose they go hand in hand). Rarely did I take a second lesson from any one of them. They just weren't helpful. Then I saw a flyer about a golf clinic that Ric was doing near my home and I decided to give it one more try. EUREKA! Ric has a special gift for taking each person where are they skill-wise and incrementally improving their skills. By the end of the 6th lesson I gained confidence and competence. Whereas before I wouldn't play with others who I didn't know out of embarrassment, now I can play with other intermediate players. I'll never be on the pro tour because I don't have a lot of natural talent, but thanks to Ric I do enjoy the game and have the tips and tools I need to play. Without hesitation I recommend Ric, and so does everyone else I've met who have taken lessons from him. On top of being a top notch coach he's a genuinely nice human being.

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've been playing golf for about 6 years and i've had a couple teachers along the way. Paul has to be one of my favorites. He really knows his stuff and is really in tune with current golf instruction. He can pretty much eye ball the flaws you have and tweak you the right way in a matter of minutes. He also uses video using the V1 app to give you a good visual of what your flaws may be. I personally like Pauls teaching because we are always on the same page and he's super easy to work with. I was having problems with hooking and over drawing the ball and right off the bat he said lets try this ( one piece take-away, keep club head outside the hands, hinge) and voila! a beautiful high tight fade. This was in the first 10 minutes! To top it all off you can't beat his prices. I ended up getting a 6 lesson package to work on all aspects of my game. 3 lessons in and iv'e seen a big improvement in my game. Thanks Paul

Have taken golf lessons here at Arroyo Seco from Joe Cano for a couple of years. The place is easy going and feels very personal and private even though it is a public course. Joe is terrific. He is deeply knowledgeable and has an entertaining style in which he uses analogies to make his point about one's swing - this helps a lot in retaining specifics in such a technical sport. Joe incorporates technology by recording your swing using cool mobile apps on his iPad that really let you see the mechanics of what you're doing and the progress you're making. I love this place and there are other instructors who also appear to be doing a great job, but Joe is awesome!

Robert is great. He has been responsive from the beginning and continues to have great communication. I've currently had two lessons and have learned a lot. His approach to teaching and sense of humor makes the lessons enjoyable. Looking forward to our continued sessions.

I met Bob Cisco at a Golf Show about eight years ago. He was advocating his "Short Game Boot Camp" one day lesson program. I tried it and learned a lot about pitching, chipping and putting from off the green with an iron. At the time, I was taking regular lessons frpm a golf pro at Industry Hills Golf Course. My progress was slow at best. I then took some lessons from Golf Tech where I learned to visualize my swing, but did not see a substantial reduction in my score. Then a few years back, I contacted Bob Cisco to discuss a series of lessons both at the range and on the course. Since then, my golf pals have noticed a marked improvement in the smoothness of my swing and my ability to make much better ball contact. As a matter of fact, the best golf compliment that I ever received was from one of the golf pros at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club during a Demo Days. He remarked how smooth my swing was and asked who my pro was. I told him it was Bob Cisco who taught me this swing. Keep in mind, I am no youngster. I am 69 years old and have only been playing for 12 years. Bob transmits his golfing knowledge and swing thoughts in a very easy to understand manner. His catcher's mitt technique for bringing the club back in the backswing has been one of the major breakthroughs in my game improvement. He has a way of taking complex swing thoughts and simplifying them for easy execution. My scores hace been dropping and just recently scored a personal best of 85. Thank you Bob Cisco! S.

Mr. Austin has been a very important milestone in my knowledge of the game. After only 3 lessons, I saw a 60% improvement in my abilities and an 80% improvement in my score. He has proven his years of expertise and the ability to impart that knowledge almost effortlessly. Very highly recommended.

About

Jack Nicklaus and I wrote back and forth to each other in 1979 regarding swing theory and technique. No small feat. I DO know the golf swing like few on earth do and am the proud owner of a world class swing, myself. Among top 200 amateurs in U.S. in 1978.

About

I love the game of golf and love teaching. What I do differently is that I teach the game backwards, from putting chipping, 1/2 swing, 3/4 swing, and full swing. This way, you will have the right swing path.
