Dear Clients:


Due to the Governor’s orders, golf is considered an approved activity.


Luna Vista Golf Course remains closed.  All classes, clinics and private lessons at that facility are postponed until the city of Dallas Parks and Recreation lift their orders. Presently, I am teaching only at The Highlands Performance Golf Center in Carrollton, TX.  With Governor Abbott's orders of lifting more restrictions, I am offering group lessons in addition to private instruction for adults and juniors at the Highlands.

Please be assured that Covid-19 guidelines are being followed. 
Please email me for appointments

The pricing of lessons will be in accordance with the Highlands rates for my lessons. Please email me or fill out our Contact Form for more information.
