Hey Fred, just wanted to tell you that I just golfed the best 18 holes of my life. I did top a few balls, but today was a scramble. I drove and hit all of my irons straight as an arrow. That one hole that is surrounded by water….I was the only guy on my team that made the green. Just wanted to tell you that I appreciate the help and I am really excited about my progress. Thanks again and have a great weekend.” ~ Brett Wielinski

“I was ready to give up on golf but decided to give it one last try.  I started taking golf lessons with Fred, and now I have a smooth and consistent golf swing.  People often come up to me at the driving range and compliment me on my swing.  Instead of giving up golf, I am now hooked and excited about golfing for life!” ~ Lisa Nunn

“I have taken golf lessons from Fred for the past several months.  As a relatively new golfer I really appreciate his approach to teaching golf.  Unlike other instructors I’ve taken golf lessons from in the past, with Fred, I learn by doing.  He will usually have me hit a bucket of balls, while also learning the theory of the game.  I feel after a few more golf lessons, I’ll be ready to “hit the course” this spring.” ~ Phil Kurtz
