Golf Instruction

Derek Sauser

Director of Instruction

Our Director of Instruction, Derek Sauser, applies over 20 years of personal and professional experience as a golfer to truly develop players in terms of performance and enjoyment. Using video technology and a personalized approach towards improving your golf game, Derek’s instruction will all but guarantee strokes saved off your scorecard. While Derek wants each player to find success, he wants to see each of his students make their own swing better. As a shining example of success, our Championship NASMGA team praises Derek in taking them from contender to champion within an extremely competitive league.

Before becoming our Director of Instruction, Derek worked at numerous clubs, from Lake Nona Country Club, Isleworth Country Club, Country Club of Orlando and the Country Club of Asheville.  It was at the CC of Orlando and CC of Asheville that Derek pursued his passion for teaching the game and improve his teaching methods and disciplines. Derek believes the game of golf tends to be over complicated and confusing to even those who play it daily. He  always has a vested interest in each student willing to offer their time and will simplify the great game of golf to all his students
