Student Testimonials

Gary, you have helped me tremendously in a very short period. After my 1st lesson I was swinging the club better than ever before and continue to see improvements each time I visit.

Your lessons are simple, easy to follow and help me make my swing better and more consistent at the same time. I also appreciate your ability to make simple changes that I can take to the course right away and see immediate results. These are lessons that work!

I have taken instruction from Gary Griggs for several years in all aspects of the game, and he has improved my performance in every one, enabling me to come within a few strokes of shooting my age. He combines keen analyses of everything from the full swing to the putting stroke with a patient, kind, and low-keyed manner.

I met Gary in 2002 at the time I started playing golf and scored around a 24 handicap. I grew up playing tennis and competed on an amateur level with success. I wanted to do the same with golf but became increasingly frustrated with my ability.

I started to take lessons with Gary, and he has helped with setting goals and prioritizing the process to reach those goals. His teaching skills and eye for detail has helped me understand my swing and make the fundamental changes correcting my ball flight. Gary stressed to me the importance of the short game shots and course management skills as key elements to lowering my scores.

In a short period of time, I transferred my swing and short game skills to the course, and my handicap dropped down to a 6. I moved back to India in 2005 but make it a point to come back to San Diego each year to get instruction from Gary.

I have been playing golf for a number of years and recently developed some bad swing faults, becoming very frustrated I was ready to give up the game.

I started taking overall game improvement lessons from Gary and after taking a series of swing and short game lessons my game improved dramatically.

Gary is patient and with his simple approach to explaining swing technique, I now have lowered my scores by ten strokes.

Thanks Gary, I enjoy playing the game now!

I have been playing golf for 6 years twice a week and took lessons from time to time from several different professional instructors.

This year on the advice of a friend of mine I took a series of 6 lessons from Gary Griggs. Gary was able to pinpoint and correct my problems, sometimes at first glance. He corrected every aspect of my game, from driving to short game to putting and sand play, and in every facet of the game pointed out things that other professionals did not notice or could not teach me.

The most important part of teaching golf is to find each individual’s faults and to correct them within the ability of that individual. Gary has proven to me that he is the very best in these respects and in my opinion he is the best golf teacher I met or anyone can desire.

I wholeheartedly recommend that anyone who wants to improve their golf game take lessons from Gary Griggs.

Gary, Your short game school was so much fun and has made a big difference in my game!

I really liked how everyone received a lot of personal attention and the notebook you gave us is a great reference to remind me of the technique I learned.

I played Torrey Pines North and scored "10 strokes" lower than my best ever there! I then played in a women's tournament at The Farms Golf Club and bettered my best score by "8 shots" and finished in 2nd place.

Thank you Gary, I’m having fun.playing the game!
