Our Mission

Good Swings Happen Junior Golf Academy was created in an effort to positively affect children’s lives through the game of golf. I have a passion for teaching the game of golf to juniors and strongly believe that learning proper skills at an early age gives children the best opportunity to play to their full potential. Good Swings Happen Junior Golf Academy offers valuable lessons of honesty, integrity, respect and hard work that are fundamental to the culture of golf, benefitting all aspects of their lives.

GOOD SWINGS HAPPEN

“WE TEACH JUNIORS TO BECOME GOLFERS… WE TRAIN GOLFERS TO BECOME CHAMPIONS.”

Good Swings Happen Junior Golf Academy was created in 2009 to provide accessible, affordable, safe, fun and professionally managed golf programs for juniors of all ages and skill levels. Good Swings Happen not only aims to create a relationship with the junior golfer, but the entire family and larger community as well. Golf is a game for a lifetime and it must be nurtured as such.

In addition to leading GSH JGA, Josh has been a golf instructor for the past 17 years teaching over 30,000 individual and group lessons to players of all ages and skill levels.  He has led “The Balanced Swing” and “Golf Fitness” seminars, aimed at integrating health awareness into the golf experience. He also co-leads “Focus-Training” seminars aimed at improving a player’s mental game.
 

Using a direct, simple approach, Josh gives his students the tools for understanding the rhythm and motion of the golf swing.  He helps them see for themselves why great shots happen with the least amount of effort.  By developing proper mechanics from pre-swing steps through the in-swing process, and by increasing awareness of how the golf swing is supposed to feel, players of all skill levels can maximize their potential as players and ensure their enjoyment of the golf experience.
