Start Playing Your Best Today

Being a member of Team Golf Lab at King Valley is more than just taking golf lessons. It is the only program of its kind that offers amateur golfers the opportunity to be coached like a PGA Tour player.

Our scientific-based programs are world-class and generate performance improvement to golfers everywhere, but most importantly IT’S FUN!

Four Pillars of Performance

Technical

Each golfer will have their own personal Key Performance Indicator (KPI) within the technical pillar and all training will focus on it's improvement with a higher focus in the offseason.

Equipment

It is essential for every athlete to have properly fit equipment. All clubs will be assessed to ensure they have the correct lie, loft, length, weight, and flex. As a golfer’s swing evolves so too must the clubs.

Tactical

Learning to hit a variety of shot shapes, as well as their practical application on course, is an important advantage to enrolling in a Coaching Program. The improved summer access to King Valley Golf Club will allow vast improvement due to increased contact time at outdoor practices.

Physical

Each golfer will have their own personalized physical training program, driven by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) body screens from their Baseline Testing. The physical program will help facilitate improvement of each golfers KPI.

Focus on What Really Matters... Your Score

“I started working with Carson 3 years ago having never broken 85 at King Valley, last year I broke 80 for the first time and have done it 6 times this year. My index is down to a 5 from 14 and I feel like my swing is on auto-pilot. I understand how to make shots happen and it goes so much further” - Yannick Bigourdan – King Valley Member
“In the year and a half I’ve been here I’ve lost 5 off my index! It’s not just about the swing it’s learning how not to turn 1 bad shot into 3! Carson has really helped me understand how f%!#$ing hard this game is but how to overcome the challenges” - Brad Gilliland – Kings Riding Member
“I always thought I knew a lot about the game of golf, having taken lessons from some great teachers. Then I met Liam who changed my thinking about the game. I call him a golf nerd, but he is truly a real guru!!!!!” - Steve Wise - King Valley Member
"I wanted to take my game to the next level, but knew I lacked the knowledge and awareness of how to do so. The Golf Lab has the methodology, technology and most importantly - the ability to explain/teach in a way that allows the golfer to understand and manage their own unique golf swing. I'm happy to say that I've reached and exceeded all my goals that were set out in the initial plan" - Jason Vanmali - CPGA Member 2020 Class

"A golf designated fitness professional, conducted a physical assessment and designed a customized, golf-specific, fitness program. The goal was to allow my body to properly move within the golf swing, and also help prevent injury. My golf coach understood my physical limitations and capabilities. Technical changes absolutely took into consideration my ability to achieve the required positions in the swing. The integration of the two worlds of golf & fitness helped lower my golf handicap.
