Gil has been a fantastic golf instructor. I was fairly nervous to begin learning a new sport and originally began the sport for the ability to play at the conferences that I have to go to for work. I have met with Gil for 4 sessions already and have fallen in love with the sport. He has helped me gain the confidence and build a love for the sport. He is extremely flexible with time and willing to work with you on your own personal goals. He is not only very experienced and professional but he is also a very personable individual with a very positive view on life and learning. I am looking forward to working with Gil for as long as I live and work in Arizona.

I met Gil on the golf course when he was working with one of his students. They joined me and my husband and played a few holes with us. We liked Gil as soon as we met him, and after seeing his coaching style thought he could help me with my golf game. I have only had two sessions with Gil, and my game has already improved. I love his coaching style! We work on the range and then move to the golf course and practice what we have learned. In the past I have struggled hitting the ball over water. Last lesson I hit over 20 balls over the water on three different holes.In four years I haven’t hit that many balls over the water. I am improving and having fun at the same time. I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Gil is a wonderful golf instructor. He’s positive, knowledgable, and personable. I will definitely be working with him for the long term. He’s very welcoming to all skill levels and makes it easy for his students to fall in love with the game of golf.

Gil has been my instructor for several years. He has been absolutely fantastic and has brought me along at a gradual pace. He has me playing golf for the fun of it,and now, thanks to him, I am really enjoying playing golf. Gil is a real student, he astounds me with his knowledge of every facet of this game. I look forward to playing with him on the course and practicing on the range as I know I will learn something new every time this transpires. I highly recommend Gil, irregardless of your ability to play the game, he feels comfortable instructing beginners as well as the advanced player.

I have been looking for a long time for a coach to put the fun back in golf and Gil is Da Man!  He really loves what he does and it shows everywhere.  He is very encouraging, observant and professional.  The time in our lessons fly’s by because I’m having so much fun while straightening out my game.  I saw a measurable improvement in my game the very first lesson.  Your mileage may vary.

been golfing for 45 years with my goal to be better and more consistent.
Current 18 hole scores can range from low 80’s to 100+
Had my initial lesson with Gil today at The Foothills Golf course in South Phoenix.
I’ve been golfing for many years and to date, never had a lesson; my bad because I feel I’ve missed out.
Gil’s enthusiasm is infectious and what was to be a 2 hour session turned into nearly 3; time flew.
Today’s lesson with Gil was as enlightening and informative and can’t wait to take today’s “lessons learned” to the range and course.
Looking forward to my next lesson session with Gil.

Gil,

Finally went out and played 9 holes. Shot a 42 with 14 puts and 1 bird. I bladed a pitch and was hesitant on a chip or I would have gone lower. This score is close to where I was when I quit when I was around 45 but I was longer and my putting wasnt that good. I think I should start playing more.

This is all thanks to you organizing my practice/mind game. I still dont have a phrase for it- Directed Practice, Purposeful Practice, Dynamic Practice, Controlled Practice….?

I am in the fairway mostly but my third shot on a par 4 is usually a chip or a pitch. I am going to Texas at the end of the month, but when i get back I want to commit to 3 sessions on the full swing for starters.

I will be playing with a friend in a 2 man scramble at Ocotillo the 26th- should be fun.

Thanks again,

-JRR

“My first lesson with Gil was awesome! He is light-hearted, great guy, with a heart to coach. You can tell he isn’t about the money; he just loves the game and wants to help others! As an experienced (but fundamentally inexperienced) golfer, Gil took me through the fundamentals with patience and even in one 2hr lesson I learned a ton about what to practice/improve before the next time we meet. I’d highly recommend him to anyone, and look forward to future lessons!”
