Growing up in Northern California, Brian Glosser has been around golf his entire life, spending numerous summers playing golf and attending junior camps at Orinda Country Club, where his grandparents were members. However, Brian did not begin getting serious about the game until after college where he found his athletic ability translated to a competitive advantage on the golf course. Brian began playing amateur golf tournaments with success and quickly realized he wanted to become a PGA Golf Professional and make golf instruction his lifelong career. Brian has worked under highly-respected teaching pros including Keith Lyford and Mike Bender, both recognized as national “Top 100 Teachers”. Learning from these experienced teachers as well as adding his own creativity, has allowed Brian to become one of Northern California’s top PGA Teaching Professionals. Today, Brian continues to compete in many professional tournaments through the Northern California Professional Golfer of America (NCPGA) every year with great success. This allows Brian to keep his game in shape for personal and professional purposes, and in that he is a big believer that an instructor must be able to proficiently execute what they teach their students, his commitment to playing golf competitively, accomplishes just that.

Ever since my father introduced me to the game of golf at age 3, I’ve been hooked. You could always find me taking swings in my yard, practicing my putting in the living room or AJ 01at the range while my dad and I honed my swing. I was lucky enough with the help of my teachers and the push of my parents to play in High School here locally at Amador Valley, and eventually earn a scholarship to play Collegiate Golf at California State University East Bay where I graduated with a B.S. in Hospitality and Tourism. Through the next few years, I will be working on my game in order to obtain my eventual goal of playing on the PGA Tour, but for now I want to help grow the game through instruction. My instructional goal is to instill the same drive and passion for the game that I have into all of my students, be them beginners looking to learn a new game or a competitive golfer looking to take their skills to the next level. I wish to help you obtain your goals as well as show you how great of a game golf truly is.
