Your Player Can Tap Into Decades Of Excellence & Experience

A leader in the San Diego Junior Golf scene for decades, Coach Dave has taught many boys and girls who have become not only fine golfers including many who played college and even professional golf, but also great kids who give back to their community.

David's goal is to have the kids fall in love with the game then motivate them to be the best they want to be. David enjoys a long-term teaching program where kids have a weekly appointment and a practice schedule. He trains kids who want to play tournament golf.

All ages are welcome.

About David Emerick, Goat Hill Park Partner, Certified PGA Teaching Professional, Founder of North County Junior Golf Association.


Golf has been my life for the past 50 years, including the last 35 as a Certified PGA Teaching Professional.

I have enjoyed great results teaching players of all ages and skill levels not only the swing but also short game shots and on-course play.

I consider it my job to help you achieve your goals on the course, and to do so, our relationship needs to extend past the driving range or the putting green for you to reach your personal goal line.

No matter what level you are now - from Scratch to pure Beginner - my personal teaching philosophy and process, which I call  The Swing ~ Score ~ Play method  will lead you to lower scores and more enjoyment!

Come and visit me at Goat Hill Park where we offer individual instruction as well as groups and clinics for all ages and skill levels, come on out to our all grass range and great short game facility to work on your game and get better!!
See you at the Goat!
