Never took lessons my entire life and I wished I had done so earlier with Mark. I dropped 10 strokes after just 2 lessons when he quickly analyzed and corrected my flaws. He did so without trying to reinvent your swing, just focused on the key fundamentals to promote better impact and consistency. Best investment you can make in golf before you drop a lot of money into expensive equipment.

Mark is the man! Had two 1 hr lessons with him. He has a scientific approach to teaching, making sure you understand why your body is doing or not doing certain things. Mark is very generous with his knowledge and pin pointed exactly what was wrong with my swing. As good instructors do, he works with your swing to ensure that the fundamentals are in tact. Good grip, good alignment, etc. etc. Overall, great teacher, lot of knowledge and a lot of simple and technical tools that help you visualize your swing — there is also a professional swing recorder/machine that lets you literally view your swing and eventual progress.

I have had several instructors in the past. At Harding Golf Course, Indian Valley, but Mark Emmons is probably the best I’ve had.

Mark Emmons

Academy Director

Mark has learned from some of the greatest teachers in the industry over the past 20 years but he credits the knowledge he has about an effective swing from seeing what works for real people.

“I worked for Hank Haney in Dallas, was in the PGA while working at a private club for 8 years, and was able to watch some great players swing the club…but learning the details of how Picasso paints doesn’t mean you’ll paint like Picasso.   


John Duggan

Assistant Professional

John worked at the Olympic Club for a number of years and he really cares! You will know that in the first five minutes you meet him. He’s a really good player who combines his real world experience with his positive personality to be a great teacher.


Taylor Adams

Assistant Professional

Taylor was a student of Mark’s when he played on a local high school team back in 2006.  He is loaded with talent and has a great way of making you comfortable. His attention to detail and amazing patience for such a young man is making him a first rate instructor.
