“We just wanted to send an email letting you know how much we enjoyed the three days of lessons with you last week. Your explanations and the little games you had us playing were fantastic. The games are something we can play and compete with each other often. As you saw, we do get a little competitive with each other. Our rounds of golf saw improvements each time we were out on the course. You definitely have a gift to teach.”  -  Nancy C.
