Lead Instructor – Zach Rodrigue

  • Zach is a Class “A” PGA of Canada professional and for the past 6 golf seasons he has been teaching and working at some of Canada’s finest golf resorts where he has taught lessons to every type of golfer you can imagine. His teaching philosophy is informative and simple to follow for any skill level. Students will leave each session with a clear understanding of what they are doing and a very simple roadmap to improve their skill. Zach is a firm believer that everyone is unique which means you shouldn’t be trying to copy someone else’s swing but instead optimize your own which is much less painful and less time consuming. Zach has won events as a junior golfer and turned pro at the age of 18… he has come close to a professional win and he is hoping that 2017 will be the year!
