90% of instruction out there is great…but only about 25-30% would be right for your swing.  The trick is to really understand what info works best for you!



Otherwise, one swing would work for everyone!

Out students learn to trust their fundamentals because they are tailored to their individual body.

Message from Mark

“Mark saved me years of frustration by starting me off right!”

I’ll get you off to a good start! Don’t start with bad habits that will be costly to fix in the future!  Learn how your body is built to move first and you will have a map in hand that shows you how your body likes to swing.

Is it the equipment?

“My buddies wonder how I got this good, this fast!”

It is very important to match the equipment for the swing style you have, not just the standard measurements of height, arm length, ect.

The Grip Pro is in

“Frustrated by lack of progress, I contacted Mark, who unlocked my full potential!”

A good grip is the most important detail.  As an expert in the way the muscles in the hands and arms work, I’ll simplify this fundamental for you.


We offer many different options to suit your needs and fit your budget. 


Assessment and Full Swing Lessons

All levels of play can benefit from this option.  New players will enjoy seeing their developing swing on video and others will like to see the comparison with how they are built and how they actually swing.  Often times just a simple adjustment can make all the difference between a reliable swing and an inconsistent one.




Play Lessons and Company Outings


We can bring our show on the road. Some players enjoy on course instruction and there are options for outings at different courses in the area.  We also can host your company here, or we can visit your business to provide on site assessments and clinics.



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 grew up in an athletic family but did not pick up the sport of golf until his early 20’s. As an all around athlete he quickly learned that there was a huge difference between a moving ball like other sports and a still one like in golf.
As an assistant with Hank Haney in Dallas TX, he had an opportunity to learn by observing some of the best teachers and players in the country. After moving back to the Bay Area, he was an Assistant Professional at the Burlingame Country Club for 8 years. During this time he was enrolled in the PGA management program and was trained as an apprentice.
He’s been teaching here at the San Bruno Golf Center for 8 years and has developed into one of the highest rated teachers in the area. His focus on the details of the grip and training on body bio mechanics have made him an expert in the teaching field. Contact Mark today to chart a path to developing your swing.





Taylor Adams
