  • About Dennis Clark
    • "My philosophy is simple: No two golf swings are alike, consequently no two golf lessons should be."

      Dennis Clark, a native of the Philadelphia area, is recognized as one of the top teaching professionals in the United States. For over 25 years, Dennis has taught thousands of golfers of all levels across the country. As both the Director of Golf and Instruction at several high end facilities, his work has been recognized by the PGA of America and several leading golf publications. A lifetime student of golf swing techniques as well as the history of the game, Mr. Clark’s PGA Master Professional status is a distinction shared by less than one percent of all PGA Professionals. Dennis’ students have competed in the US Amateur Championship, on the PGA Tour and on several developmental tours. Many of his junior players have gone on to NCAA Division 1 scholarships and he currently coaches the reigning Pennsylvania State Open Champion. Clark has also worked with countless club level players and many of them have won club championships in their division.

      “My philosophy is simple: no two golf swings are alike, consequently no two golf lessons should be. I try to get my students to be their own teacher by understanding how their ball flight is the result of certain impact conditions. I disagree with method teaching believing that there are many ways to swing the club to accomplish the task. There is no swing that cannot be corrected if one is willing to work on it.”
