“Doug’s ability in assessing golf skill areas needing to be improved is astute.  His teaching style is like none I have ever encountered.  He carefully assessed me physically, mentally, as well as for my technical golf mechanics.  To top everything off, he is just a really good guy.”  -Bruce G.
“Thanks again for all your help. I have renewed excitement about playing again!”  -Richard S. 
“Thanks again for the awesome Academy experience.  I’m incorporating some of the new instruction and hope to display my improved swing in our club championship this weekend.”  –Scott A. 
“My son and I really enjoyed our stay at Entrada, and your golf lessons.  I think the things that I’ve found most helpful are being aware of the proper low point of my swing, relaxing the grip pressure and hitting the ball on the club face’s “sweet spot”.  I’ve noticed the ball does what I want if I just relax, slow down and use the club correctly.”  -Jim H.
“I played 18 holes this afternoon and saw a big improvement in my driving as well as some really solid iron shots. I’m feeling more confident now with the wedges as well. Thanks again Doug for the great instruction this past weekend. Looking forward to working with you again in the future.” -Roger 
“Hi Doug, I wanted to say thank you for your attention, suggestions and teaching methods.  My driver is much straighter and farther than before.  I really appreciate the time you gave us, and I’m throwing out all of the other pages of golf tips that I’ve accumulated ….. and sticking with the priorities learned from you.”  -Peg M.
“Thank you Doug Roberts! You, of course, are a huge reason for my daughter’s success and performances on the course!  She is looking forward to the next chapter in her golfing career.”  -David S. 
“Hey Doug, I just wanted to let you know I have been able to implement the grip and swing changes to great results!  I shot an 85 today with consistent ball contact.  A couple of errant shots but still playable.  Thanks for all your help.”  -Murray H.
