Integrity is our Focus.
Irish Golf Academy will be dedicated to providing golf lessons to all persons from all walks of life. We wish IGA to become a family orientated location. It is of great importance to its founder that IGA combines the great game of golf with education, integrity, honesty, commitment, passion and camaraderie with the youths of its community.
In my ten years in the area I have built a great reputation with these six values and believe that IGA is now ready to pass life’s fruits onto others through the great game of golf.
As a young fellow growing up in the country of Ireland, I was blessed to have my father introduce me to this wonderful game. Unlike most sports where parent’s cheer from the sidelines, my father walked by side many an evening giving me advice and getting to know who he’s son was becoming as a teenager for hours on end. My father and golf are the reasons I am the man I am today.
The word integrity has been driven into my soul from a young age. Customer service is key to any business success and I strive to make people feel welcome, that also comes from my Irish upbringing.
My dream of IGA came to me six years ago when I started to coach a couple of local high school golf teams. In the beginning I really enjoyed helping children and teenagers learn the correct fundamentals of golf. From here I took a year long course in Professional Golf Instruction, which I passed with honors. I was fortunate to be already in the hospitality business, and so I marketed these skills to patrons and built a clientele of 240 golfers. All who are improving with each lesson.
IGA plans to take the word ‘etiquette’ and translate it to the youth of its community . Thus proving that life’s most important quality can be learned not only at school but also through this wonderful life challenge we call the game of golf.
