I met David about 4 years ago when he was at Green To Tee up at Glencoe Golf Club. I hired him to work with my son who wanted to try and be on the high school golf team. My son did make the team and then I decided to start taking lessons from David. In the last 2 years David has taken my handicap from 23 to 14. Also, in 2012 I asked David if he would work with me and my friends and start a group clinic a few days a week during the winter. That was extremely successful and every clinic sold out each week. David is a great teacher. He sticks to his lesson and doesn’t get all chit chatty which I think some pros tend to do. You learn a lot in one lesson without feeling like it was way too much information. I just want 3-4 things to work not 10! And that’s what he gave me. He has a great easy-going personality that is very easy to be with. I then recommended him to teach at our downtown club, the Saddle and Cycle Club and that program was a huge success last summer. It was great to walk into the Saddle and see all the young kids walking around proudly with their golf bags and adults taking weekly lessons. I would recommend David to anyone, male or female, young, old, low handicap or high. He is a great golf pro because of his professionalism, easy personality, his knowledge and understanding of the mechanics of the swing and his “spot on” instruction.

My 14-year old son has worked with David for several years. David has helped him develop a very solid golf game; learning all the fundamentals as well as developing the confidence to compete. In addition, David has provided a great example of how to conduct oneself both on the course and in life. He is always kind, professional and encouraging. My wife and I also appreciate the outstanding communication David has with us and his insights into ways our son can continue to develop and improve. It has been a pleasure both to watch my son’s golf game become very good and to see all the success David is having!

In eighth grade my daughter decided to give up her other sports and start a completely new sport- that being golf. She started with David Maslen who taught her the basics from the ground up. She had never held a golf club before and David patiently and methodically taught her everything she needed to know about the game of golf. By age 15, Sophomore year, my daughter played on the varsity high school golf team. David would come to tournaments and support her during the golf season. He would review her play and focus lessons on her areas of greatest need. He is an encouraging, positive, and an incredibly knowledgeable coach. David sets his standards high and expects his students to put in the time to improve. My daughter continues to love the game of golf and improve her skills on the golf course with the help of David. Thanks to David’s training and encouragement my daughter has aspirations to play the game of golf at a college level.
