Meet Dr. Greta

Hi, I’m Dr. Greta

As an instructor, my goals are to maximize your skills, address specific problems, and build the confidence you need to play your very best.

This is why I love playing golf

Golf is a metaphor for life. Training and experience can get you far. But even when you’re struggling – when it looks like you’re doomed to underperform – you can turn things around in the middle of a game.

There are no big screens on the walls. No loud noises to distract you. You’re also playing with other people, not against them (unless you choose to).

And when you meet another golfer in a foreign country where nobody else speaks your language, you’ve discovered at least one person who does.
