Palm Harbor Golf Club Pros

Donna Serino-LPGA Teaching Professional, Class A

EveryBODY is different and I will help each student find their

own swing in ways THEY like to learn. There is no one way to

swing the club and no one way for the ball to reach it’s target.

The student will learn how to build a strong foundation of

fundamentals. I will communicate in a simple and relatable way

so the student can reach their goal in an attainable way.

Tony Rios-USGTF Master Golf Teaching Professional

“Organized knowledge helps organize thoughts, organized

thoughts help organize practice, organized practice help

organize memory, organized memory help organize reality,

organized reality improves results” Tony Rios – 3BGolf.

Did you know? When our Palm Coast community shops

locally, businesses thrive, jobs are created, and we

generate money for the amenities and projects we cherish.

That’s because a portion of the sales tax collected returns

back to Palm Coast to fund projects such as the new Palm
