Darrell Taylor, PGA

With over 30 years of teaching golfers from juniors, to adults, to seniors, it has been my mission to help golfers understand what a golf swing is, and how to master their individual swing. While everyone has a unique swing, the fundamentals remain the same. It has been my mission the help golfers put their knowledge to work and improve their game.

Teaching others how to play golf and how to score has been a passion of mine for many, many years. My immediate goal is for the student to develop a swing consistency and a repeating shot pattern so that they can score into the 70”s quickly. This is done by learning techniques and scoring strategies. I can show you a very consistent chipping technique that will take many strokes off your score. Guaranteed. What I enjoy most is teaching the junior player and beginning golfers, showing both how to play and have fun playing the game.
