Mike Davis



Learning the game of golf can sometimes be confusing and frustrating. I find it more enjoyable if you view it as a journey, not a destination.

The relationship between a student and an instructor is similar to that of a tourist and a tour guide. First, I need to find out where a student wants to go in order to help them get there. I develop a road map for their journey after I learn about their goals, dreams and abilities.

Recent studies have shown the only group of golfers who exhibit consistent improvement in their game are those working with a qualified instructor. The staff at Walters Golf Academy is committed to exceeding your expectations and making your journey through the game of golf an enjoyable one.




Mike is recognized as one of the top instructors in the country, being chosen by GOLF Magazine for their prestigious Top 100 Instructor list and has been ranked the #2 instructor in Nevada since 2002 by Golf Digest. He has been chosen Instructor of the Year thirteen times by PGA Chapters and four times by PGA Sections.

Mike has a long history as a competitive golfer. He has won numerous regional tournaments, played in three US Opens, one PGA Championship and was a full time PGA Tour member in the mid-seventies. He has taught over 110 students who have played on college golf teams around the country. His former students have become high school and college coaches, PGA professionals and professional golfers. He was the Director of Instruction for VegasGolfer Magazine for four years.

Mike is an expert in the field of video instruction, having won an award for his research project: “The Efficacy of Using Video in Golf Instruction” from the World Scientific Congress of Golf, in St. Andrews, Scotland. Mike has written hundreds of articles for regional and national magazines over the past thirty years including Golf Digest, GOLF Magazine and numerous regional and local publications.



We believe in teaching people, not golf. Each student is unique and may require a different approach to the fundamentals than someone else.

We believe in establishing a strong foundation of the correct set-up for each stroke. If there is an error in the set-up, a perfect swing will produce a bad result.

We work toward improving the student’s game on the course; making certain they develop an understanding for course management decisions and the mental side of the game.

We develop a sound long-range plan for each student.
We use the latest technology to enhance the student’s learning experience and development. We strive to always exceed our customers’ expectations. To learn more about Mike Davis please visit his website: www.MikeDavisGolf.net
