Your Personal Coach

Wouldn't it be great to have your own certified personal golf coach, not just an instructor?

At GOLFTEC you’ll build a relationship with a golf coach who not only provides game-changing golf lessons, but also encourages your success and genuinely cares about your progress.

Each of our Certified Personal Coaches is an experienced golf professional, and passionate about improving your game. Most have taught thousands of lessons.

All go through the rigorous multi-week certification of GOLFTEC University where they master the analysis of golf mechanics, the technology of the GOLFTEC training system, and the most productive teaching techniques. 

Their teaching is regularly reviewed and refined for maximum effectiveness. You’ll enjoy having a golf Coach more than a golf instructor, who cares as much about your game as you do.
