Golf Classes in Walnut Creek
Group golf instruction open to the public

If you are near the Walnut Creek-Concord area in Northern California, or are planning to travel to this area, you can participate in my various group golf instruction classes throughout the year. The classes are open to the public and cover a wide variety of topics touching on all areas of the game. Continue below for more information and to find out about upcoming classes.

You can also arrange to have a "Private Class" for your corporate, club, business or association group. Please to provide and receive details about this type of golf class for your group.
