Private

If your a beginner, junior, high school, collegiate, intermediate, or advanced Golfer – let’s take your game to a new level! I personalize every program for any level player.

Covering club fitting, full swing, specialty shots, putting, chipping, pitching, sand game, on course strategy, and formulating a game plan for you to reach your specific golfing goals. The proper technique, swing speed, grip, set-up position, footwork, will all be taught and demonstrated for you.

Group

For groups of up to 10 people, learn with your friends, family, or colleagues! A personal favorite as it provides an enjoyable platform to demonstrate and teach technique, yet adds a social factor that highlights the real joy of the sport. Additionally, typical class structure reserves time for individual program specialization and instruction as well.

Learn to play, brush up, coaching, swing analysis, or putting refinement – you won’t be disappointed with our Group Lessons.

Corporate Clinic

Group lesson plans tailored for business. Make it fun and introduce your clients or colleagues to golf, or fine tune your experienced guests game – all while holding a meeting!

Offer more tangible knowledge & technique demonstrations than the more typical “club pro” clinics. From full swing to putting, your clinic group will leave surprised not only at the value experienced, but the fun had in the process.

It’s All About Patience

To better understand what sets my instructional methods apart from the more common practices used at courses and by course pro’s, my philosophy may help … it’s pretty simple. Rather than increasingly inundate a student with terms, techniques, and focus points, I follow a more simplistic if not natural path that keeps the mind & body a bit more in sync with the end goal and away from analysis-paralysis so common to us all.

A Unique Perspective

Having been a professional player & instructor I’ve seen it all. My job satisfaction comes from watching students grow and play their best through proper guidance & expertise. I’ve played Golf my entire life and lived some extraordinary moments around the great players of the world. Fortunate enough to teach Touring Professionals and current/former athletes in the NBA, NFL and MLB, I love to share the game I know best … unlocking players natural talent & allowing them to be the best golfer possible.

Background &
Philosophy

“Troy Grant is a fine addition to the world of golfs students of the game and that is a requirement to being a top rank teacher and player.

He loves golf, studies and experiments with it’s elements and is on his way to being considered a top ranked teacher like my friend Butch Harmon. He plays golf very well also so his ideas work.”

“I knew Troy when he was quite young. He had a goal from a young age to excel as a player which he did. He later has become one of the finest golf instructors in California. Troy is dedicated to excellence for his students young and old. You will love your learning experience with Troy, and know that you will be receiving the finest quality instruction.”

About me …

If you want to get the most from the Game of Golf, you need professional guidance. I am a Playing Professional that can help.

Working with major Corporations, Celebrities, and a variety of Charities I have enjoyed not only bringing a fresh perspective and energy to these golf events, but adding adding to the experiences in sharing some of the stories and lessons learned. Organizing and hosting many such events, I welcome working directly with you or your organization as I commit myself to each individual with great enthusiasm and effort, I think you will find.

Whether you’re new to golf or a Professional, junior or collegiate golfer, you will get the best instruction possible with my dedication and personal commitment. I want to build YOUR swing, using your natural abilities, and develop the confidence to play your best golf game … for life!

Contemplations …

Worry not, each success as a student’s game improves brings the need to understand & practice all of these terms, techniques, and focus points – but when and as appropriate, without subjugating the end goal in the process (as commonly happens). Over the years I’ve been able to develop a methodology to teach each student there own way to swing the club based on there body structure and flexibility. As you know, nobody is built the same way and we all have different restrictions in what we can do physically. So what I do is work with what the student is able to do and perfect it so that every student has their own Golf swing that is custom to them. I’m not just coaching Golfers, I’m coaching individuals.

That said, as a coach I have to adjust and correct each individual’s temperament towards the game and keep them on track to learn accordingly. By it’s very nature Golf brings our mood levels up and down, so I find it equally important to help guide students emotions during the learning process as well. As I said, proper instruction has to be about the individual cohesively in order to meet expectations, achieves end goals, and maintain the fun that makes Golf so addictive. If you had to quote me, I might say … “Everything is about patience”

“I’m very grateful to have Troy Grant as my Golf Pro and friend. Before working with Troy I really didn’t know what I was doing even though I’ve played for a while.

Anyone who wants to improve their golf swing and their golf game, Troy is your guy!”
