Carrie's Teaching Philosophy
Improving a students game through basic fundamental teaching is so rewarding both for the student and the instructor. Carrie firmly believes in "keeping it simple", sticking with the fundamentals of golf.
A good instructor can adapt to any situation. This is what Carrie is great at. She learns about her student then determines how the student will best learn the golf swing. Whether it be through visual learning (video), drills for feel or communication (talking) about it. Anyone can learn the game and play it.
With over 20 years teaching experience behind her, Carrie has worked with many people at all levels of skill. From the beginner to those playing professionally and all levels in between. Whether you're a male, female, junior or senior, any age, any skill level, Carrie can help your game.
