PLAYER TESTIMONIALS

"I am a missionary surgeon who picked up golf late in life. Because I've spent my life teaching surgery, Dana's phenomenal teaching skills were what drew me to her. She helped me drop my handicap by 8 and now I frequently win when playing with the boys."

- Dr. David Parsons

"Coach Dana is fun to be with and has lots of ideas that keep the game of golf interesting and fun to learn."

- Cindy Song, Winner 2017 US Kids World Championship 12 year old age group

"Dana is tremendous at identifying and communicating "what and how" to keep my game constantly improving. She is a great coach and a friend and I have endless respect for her as my mentor. "

- Blake Waggoner, 2017 Freshman Arizona State University

"16 years ago Dana took a 54 year old me and got my handicap down to 16. It has been the best thing I've ever done and I am forever grateful."

- Ann Rehkopf

"After working with Dana I shot my career low of 66 and qualified for the Carolina Mid-Amateur."

- Peter Burns, ESPN- SEC network studio host

"Coach Dana is very patient to explain things to me. She makes my golf swing better each day and I would never be as good as I am right now if I didn't come to her for lessons. I've improved from the 90's to mid to low 70's."

- Emily Song

"I cannot thank Dana enough for what she's done to help me be the best player and person that I can be for the past nine years. I am blown away with her knowledge in every aspect of the game; therefore whenever she talks I listen. I am grateful to have her in my life."

- JD Hughes, Penn State University Men's golf team
