Doug joined The Woodlands Club staff in 1995 as an Assistant Golf Professional and was promoted to his current position as the Director of Golf in 1999. He is a Class A member of the Professional Golfers Association of America. Doug’s teaching philosophy is to work with the positives of his students. He doesn’t believe there is one way to swing. Every student has unique strengths and limitations. He will work with your best learning style, personality, skill level and goals. His strengths as an instructor are his overall knowledge of the game and its technical aspects, his ability to communicate, and being patient and understanding during each player’s unique learning and development experiment. Doug takes pride in being able to teach complex concepts in a simple manner.
