Dion's interest in golf began nearly 20 years ago. Today, Dion's goal is to provide students with fundamentals that challenge them to develop . While he works with students of all ages, he is especially proud and focused on using golf to help students and young adults become strategic thinkers.

I'm so impressed by the level of golf education and expertise that Dion gives. Highly recommend adults and youth training.
Excellent coach and mentor! My son started with him at 8 years old and is really progressing and continues to love the game, and his coach!
Dion Madkins is an outstanding instructor. His patience and poise allows for his golf students to feel comfortable in learning and exploring new techniques. Dion's goal is to improve each and every student's golf performance while ENJOYING the game. He is funny and witty and enjoys getting to know each one of his students. His dedications obvious. Thank you Dion!
Dion was patient and actually taught me how to move my body with different swings. He was young and energetic! He seemed to care that I improved.
First and foremost, I want to figure out exactly what the student wants to learn. Then, we set goals to accomplish the desired outcome, and move forward from there.
I am a certified club fitter, certified club smith and I have 20 years experience playing and teaching the sport.
People always told me I had the talent to play make it as a golf pro. I have a wife and a child, and I knew touring would take time away from them, so I decided to go the golf instructor route.
I have worked with students as young as 2 years of age, all the way up to Division 1 college golfers aspiring to reach it to the professional tour.
One of my fondest memories is being a part of helping two students earn Division 1 college scholarships.
Interview wisely. Speak with a prospective golf instructor and ask questions to learn their knowledge of the game. It's also important that they be able to translate their knowledge in a way that you can understand. Can they dissect or breakdown the game in language that you understand? It's important that a golf instructor is relatable to the student.
They should have an idea about what they are trying to accomplish. What are they wanting to do? What do they want to get out of the lessons?
