Lessons re-opening later this month!

No two golf swings are the same, as all abilities have different limitations. Things that are similar are basic fundamentals at the address and impact position. All golfers have personal goals, whether that be looking to beat your friends, lower your handicap, or just wanting to start a new activity. We can personalize a plan to help achieve your goals! 

Matteo Nobile, PGA Professional

Passion is what drives me. The passion for the game of golf, passion for my home of Muskoka and passion for Deerhurst golf. As a kid I was honoured to call Deerhurst my home club, playing the majority of my rounds at the Deerhurst Lakeside golf course but on special occasions was spoiled enough to play Highlands. My passion for sports drove me to pursue an undergraduate degree at Bishop’s University. After graduating I went head first into a career in golf, starting at Deerhurst Resort followed by a year as the Assistant Professional at Grandview Golf Club.  

After understanding the fundamentals of a golf swing, we start to have some fun! Starting to enjoy the next level begins with working on shot shaping, preparation and course management . All people learn differently, through the use of various drills, video analysis, face to face lessons and launch monitors we can work together to find the best way to reach your goals.
