Golf Coaching Programs

Golf Coaching Programs and Information

Gary Cardoza Jr PGA has been coaching golfers for over 26 years. He is a member of the Proponent Group, The Skilled Coaching Alliance, a US Kids Certified Coach, and has been recognized as a top 25 instructor in New England for several years by New England Golf Monthly. In addition Gary has also been nominated to the Golf Digest Best In State for the past 5 lists. His singular focus with any student is improving the overall player’s performance on the golf course with a long term focus on the entire game. This differs from traditional swing teachers who focus solely on mechanics and the swing itself. A large amount of our time in any long term coaching program will be spent on the golf course playing the game rather than sitting on a range or in a simulator. While full swing practice is important for proper technique, the ability to validate it on the golf course is critical for long term player development. 

During your initial lesson, you'll complete a player assessment and establish the highest priorities for improvement. Mutually agreed upon goals will be established, and once you've identified the main areas of concern, a practice plan will be developed to help you achieve growth in the most efficient way possible. A full review of the goals along with fully developed practice plans will be uploaded to an online training space that you'll have access to for as long as you're a client. The site serves as a two way locker for you to communicate any questions, updates, or concerns in between lessons where Gary can review and communicate back. It's like having a coach 24/7 in your pocket. Gary is so committed to helping you improve that if you aren't satisfied with the progress over time he will coach you for free until the agreed upon goals are met. 

Gary firmly believes in working within the natural athletic movements of the player to improve the existing swing, skill sets, and overall approach to the game. Your practice plan will include ways to practice at home as well as on course practice ideas as well. It's a combination of technical movement pattern based aquisition and game like training for the golf course. Training occurs at Pine Oaks Golf Course using a combination of our indoor Trackman studio and the golf course itself to validate full ball flight and train in the real environment that we play in. Pine Oaks also has a full short game area with bunker for use in training short game techniques such as pitching putting and chipping. Some of the tools that I use to help players perform include Trackman, BodiTrak, Hackmotion, Blast, Sportsbox AI 3D Imaging and more. We also have access to golf specific exercise physiologists as well as PT services for golf specific training needs.

I am currently booked through July of 2024. The online schedule is current up to 90 days in advance. If there is no availability showing it means I am booked past the 90 day booking window. I strongly suggest booking multiple times when they become available as they will book fast. To join the waitlist for cancelltions please email Please check back often as the site updates in real time and cancellations do occur while I'm in appointments.
