Our Staff:


Tim Terwilliger, PGA Head Professional
Tim has been a member of the PGA since 1995 and has been teaching here at Brookside Golf Course since 1982. He has spent his career studying the history of golf as well as the greatest swings and legendary teachers. Through his research, he has concluded that there are many different ways and countless avenues to help golfers improve their swings, ball striking, and overall game.

Tim feels the teaching industry tends to focus on individual nuances and style, and not enough on traits that all greats have in common, which he refers to as absolutes. The key is to develop a personal plan for each individual student that focuses on those absolutes, which are vital for proper swinging and ball striking. Then subsequently work on those concepts that each individual is realistically capable of doing and only explore these concepts once they are understood.

$75 per 30 minute lesson, $375 for series of 6 lessons
