The fourth lesson will be held on our Par 3 or Executive 9 Golf Course.

Developmental – Adult
For experienced golfers who play routinely, however the experience and frequency of play does not always translate into consistent scoring. Your handicap does not matter here; High or Low, if you want to lower your scores and improve overall consistency, this is the class for you. Lower student instructor ratio with increased class time allows for individual attention to satisfy your goals. The fourth lesson will be conducted on the golf course to apply skills acquired.

FREEBURY

Jeff Freebury
Hometown: Kalispell, Montana
College: University of Montana

Jeff is a Class A PGA member since 1995 and a Certified Teaching Professional in 2016. Out of over 28,000 PGA members, less than 500 are certified in teaching. Jeff’s thesis of “Teaching to the Generations” represents his belief that we all process information differently and need the information shared in a way that relates to the individual.

Instructor Quote: “I like to focus on awareness through self, golf club and target. I believe in keeping the mechanics simple and understanding the mental challenges with the game of golf. Have you ever asked yourself why the second player is so much better than the first? The answer is that on the first shot, the player is concerned with the outcome while on the second shot or the practice shot, the player is focused on the process. The ball is the outcome while the swing is the process.”

Instructor Quote: I like to keep the fundamentals of golf as simple as possible. When analyzing an individual’s golf swing I isolate areas to locate the fault that is causing other problems. Once this is determined, many swings can be improved quickly and dramatically. I enjoy teaching the mental aspects of the game and helping students get to their next level.

DUNRUD

Alan Dunrud

Career history:
1988-1989 Heather Ridge County Club
1990-1991 Kennedy Golf Course
1992-1998 Overland Golf Course
2007-present Meadows Golf Course

Instructor Quote: “Golf is a game that to be played well, has to be played by feel. The best players  describe feeling like an artist on the golf course, not an engineer. However, for someone beginning the game, or a player struggling with their game, the swing mechanics have to be addressed. In golf, like othe sports, consistency is achieved by developing good fundamentals.”
