Our Instructors

Daniel Sumerel – Director of Golf

With over 15 years in the golf industry I have taught lessons from juniors to seniors, from beginners to the more advanced golfers. I thoroughly enjoy teaching the game to beginners, hoping to teach them a lifelong game they can experience with their friends and families for generations. I also enjoy teaching the more advanced player that wants to make their games better, lower their handicaps, and improve their knowledge of course management. I started the game at age 12, after my father was bit by the golf bug. He would take me to play during summer break and that is where my passion for the game began. From that moment I have been fully involved with the game from junior golf, to high school, to college, and to my career. I hope to bring you as much enjoyment in the game as I have experienced over the years.
