What Bills Student's Are Saying

caret-down caret-up caret-left caret-right

I have played golf since I was 12 years old (59 today) and without question my game has improved over the past 4-5 years since taking regular lessons with Bill Sakas.  His knowledge of the golf swing coupled with his unique ability to tailor the right approach to each student’s particular swing are the factors that I believe have helped me achieve success and a lower handicap.  Since working with Bill, I have won multiple club championships at Green Acres Country Club (both regular and senior). Bill makes instruction simple and enjoyable and he is accessible either in scheduling lessons or with phone calls or emails asking questions about technique or particular issues.
