Nicklaus Academy at DragonRidge Introduces Staff Changes

The Nicklaus Academy at DragonRidge is proud to announce additions to its staff of Certified Nicklaus Academy instructors for the 2011 / 2012 season.

nadr_exterior.jpgDoug Roberts - 2-time Utah Section PGA Teacher of the Year (2009/2010); past Director of Instruction at the Nicklaus Academy at The Ledges (St. George, UT) and the exclusive Estancia Club and TPC of Scottsdale in Arizona; lead technician for the Nicklaus/Flick and ESPN Golf Schools; and studied under the careful watch of Mr. Jim Flick (Teacher of the Century) and Mike Malaska (World-wide Director of Instruction for Nicklaus Academies and a Top 25 Instructor). Doug will be available at the Academy 2 or more days each week. 

Don Johnson - Formerly the Head Teaching Professional at the Desert Inn CC and Head Professional at Paradise Valley CC here in Las Vegas and 28-years as the Head Professional at the Hidden Valley CC in Salt Lake City, UT. A career golf professional that spans nearly 50 years and it is not ready to come to a close. Don also happens to be one of Mike Malaska's early coaches and mentors, and has coached winners on the PGA Tour, the Senior PGA Tour, a Women's US Open Champion and a Junior World Champion... We could go on and on but needless to say, Don has the experience to help any player of any age and any ability.

Dustin Simons - Dustin remains the constant at the Nicklaus Academy at DragonRidge. In his two-plus years at the Academy, Dustin has grown as an instructor with a very solid following of members and non-members, as an excellent club fitter, and as someone at the Academy always open and willing to take your game out to the course. Dustin is also interfacing with the Fitness Center in terms of the TPI program and a Nutritional Program for Golf, and is currently evaluating a new Mental Evaluation and Training program.
