Dona is always ready to introduce the game to anyone interested from the junior ranks to the Super-Seniors. Men & Women alike.
Guiding players through their ongoing education and exploration of a personal golf journey is a great honor that I am afforded every day I come to work.
Dona has a powerful, high energy & creative teaching style. Her lesson tee is a safe non-threatening learning environment where the game is always kept in perspective. Her philosophy is Golf is a game & games are meant to be fun. A lesson is sure to be fun and educational each time.
Our vision is that every student has his or her own individual potential. Given the opportunity to flourish on their own terms, anything is possible. We maintain all instruction will be about the student & his or her personal goals. Our job is to guide them along the journey toward and sometimes beyond those goals, always keeping the game of golf in perspective.
A teacher leads, mentors, inspires, engages, sets the bar and earns the trust of their players. Our philosophy for success begins with relationships. As teachers we must hold our students to a level of expectation that will strengthen their golf experience and results. We resolve our challenges together always looking for a way to empower the player in a safe environment. Our responsibility is to give each student a voice that he or she feels safe expressing; Golf is a game & games are meant to be fun.
