Jim was a great coach especially for a beginner like me. He is patient and understanding. Makes all his instructions easy to grasp the basics of golf. I’d 100% recommend Jim as a coach to anyone especially if they’re new to golf.

I had the pleasure of being coached by Jim, and I must say, he is excellent when it comes to teaching beginners. His patience and clear instruction made it easy for me to grasp the basics of golf. Jim has a knack for breaking down your shots and suggesting the proper adjustments. If you're a beginner looking for a skilled and patient coach, I highly recommend Jim.

Jim is an excellent golf instructor and coach! You will learn a lot from the first lesson regardless of skill level. I would recommend Jim to anyone who is looking to start playing golf as well as anyone looking to improve their golf game. Jim has been my coach for many years and I have enjoyed my time with him throughout my golf journey! - Josué -

I had a hard time getting out of sand bunkers and it was costing me 2 to 3 shots per round..I went to Jim and in one lesson he completely fixed my problem..That was two years ago and it has dramatically improved my game.I highly recommend Jim as a golf instructor

I’ve been working with Jim for over a year now and only wished I would have started sooner. I never got lessons and picked up the game 20+ years ago with some bad habits. Jim makes small changes and reinforces those changes until you feel comfortable and get the result you’re looking for. I also have taken both of my 12 year old junior golfers to him and he is great with them. Highly recommend him and will continue to work with him while I’m playing in south Florida.
