Instructors

 

Jake Saito, PGA Class "A", Head Golf Professional

 
Jake’s passion for the game and sincere desire to help students achieve their personal best is the motivating force behind his instruction. Jake has been teaching junior camps since 2001 and started private lessons in 2007. Jake also has over 10 years of competitive playing experience and has been a medallist in numerous events ranging from Collegiate to Northern California PGA section events. Jake has taught over 8,000 lessons in his career and strives to make the game fun and enjoyable for every age and skill level. His primary goal when teaching is to create a plan for success based on the student’s particular aspirations, while keeping things as simple as possible.  Each lesson Jake focuses on finding one main area that is having the largest negative impact on his students swing and creates a plan based on solving that particular problem. In addition Jake will also work on the mental aspects of the game to help establish the correct fundamentals. Building good practice habits and creating consistency is always a major focus of Jake’s teaching. Jake loves to teach all ages and skill levels, so if you are a junior or senior, male or female, left-handed or right handed, scratch golfer or beginner golfer, Jake can help advance your game to the next level.

Alison Lombardo, Assistant Golf Professional, Tournament Coordinator 

My teaching philosophy is simple. I would like the student to understand the basic golf swing fundamentals. I structure each lesson to fit the goals of the individual golfer. My goal is to make sure each golfer enjoys the game of golf and has fun. For the more competitive golfer, I do provide a more in depth practice schedule based on his/her abilities.
