Golf Instruction by 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.

 I am committed to exceeding your expectations and making your journey through the game of golf an enjoyable one.
In my 47 years as a golf professional, I have become an expert in the full swing and an expert in the short game.  I have been chosen PGA Teacher of the Year 17 times and was one of GOLF Magazines Top 100 Teachers for over a decade.  I am a member of two Hall of Fames:  The Pacific Northwest Golf Association and the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame.

I am also very proud of developing the Premier Junior Golf Program in Southern Nevada.  I now have a large number of young golfers involved with my program, including over fifty kids on my five PGA Junior League teams.  

I teach at DragonRidge CC in Henderson, Nevada.  I use a state of the artclimate controlled, teaching bay with both a video system and launch monitor.

Mike Davis Junior Golf Academy – PGA Junior League

Working with young golfers has always been a passion of mine.  With the support of the DragonRidge CC and its great facilities, I now have the Premier Junior Golf Program in Southern Nevada.  The kids in my program have won numerous local and regional tournaments and many age group Player of the Year awards.

My program is a combination of private instruction and group practices.  This allows everyone to advance at their own pace.  The group practices consist of technique work with each child and goal-oriented drills that are fun but also create a competitive atmosphere.

Group practices are multiple days per week and Saturday.  The times will vary depending on the season, usually mornings during the summer and after school the rest of the year.

Students may purchase ten- or twenty-hour packages and use them at any pace they desire.  Each package includes 30-minute private lessons.  Note:  Group sessions may be taken in one or two hour increments.

Ten-hour group practices plus one 30-minute private lesson = $230

Twenty-hour group practices plus two 30-minute private lessons = $435

Space will be limited for all sessions.  Registration will be required.

Teaching Philosophy

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 websites: or
