The 2022 Season is here!

Tom and I are pleased to announce that we are returning to Valleybrook Country Club for our 14th season in 2022. Working closely with Brad Miller, PGA Director of Golf at Valleybrook, we have re-organized our golf instruction priorities a bit for the coming season.


We will be limiting our activities to Private, Individual Instruction for Adults and Juniors in 2022. Brad will be conducting all adult and junior golf clinics/camps. This includes the junior golf camps and Ladies Golf League and other group instruction that he has plans for.


Junior Camps and clinics will be conducted by Valleybrook Director of golf Brad Miller, PGA The PGA Junior League and Valleybrook Junior Golf Camps can be reached thru the following link. Don't delay, as these programs will fill up fast. 

We will continue with the same appointment scheduling that we have had in the past, being available for private instruction Tuesday - Thursday and Saturday and Sunday. Tom will also be available a couple of those days at Running Deer. Our fee schedule will also remain the same as recent years. In that regard, we will continue scheduling all lessons on the hour, which gives us some extra time if needed to complete a one-half hour golf lesson.


We are not turning our backs on group camps/clinics. They have a useful purpose of introducing all ages of interested golfers to game. Brad is well equipped to offer these learning experiences. Our goal is to be able to offer much more in-depth learning of the game of golf, whether it be for adults of all ages or juniors of 10 years old and above.


We are back to scheduling private appointments now. 


In the meantime, stay safe and be well.
