TESTIMONIALS

Testimonial from our client

John Ronis has been an incredible instructor and High School Coach for both of our boys.  He is a very knowledgeable and skilled teacher with an abundance of patience for his students.

    John has taken the time to get to know the boys on a personal level.  He has a great rapport  with teenagers and uses an easy going, lighthearted focus to win to which they respond very well.  John's own competitive golf experience and over 25 years as a PGA Professional has earned him the highest amount of respect from our kids.  They know they can trust his insights.

    Our sons are excited to know they will be able to work with John year round benefiting from the latest technology and facilities at the new John Ronis Golf Academy.

Lori Monastero

Testimonial from our client

John has worked closely with my son Eli throughout his competitive junior career.  John's thorough understanding of the golf swing allowed him to quickly identify areas for strengthening and improvement.  He is a master in his ability to communicate complex concepts and create the imagery necessary to implement changes.  Beyond the practice tee, John has also served as an incredible mentor, drawing upon his own experience as a collegiate player to teach my son the mindset and competitive approach required to succeed in tournament golf.

Clayton Newman

Testimonial from our client

Not many people can say they worked with a golf instructor for 11 years, but I had the pleasure of working with John for that length of time as I climbed through the ranks of Junior Golf.  John has a great ability to make golf swing and technique concepts understandable for students of any age, but the biggest difference with John is that he has the ability to make any lesson enjoyable.  Book a lesson with John today!  You will not be dissapointed.
