Greetings all. This is to give a shout-out to one Scott E. at the Encinitas locale. Now. If you want someone with golf knowledge that will resonate with your intuition and things of this nature, I would hesitate not one iota in seeking his employ. In fact the entire teaching facility where Scott masterfully plies his trade is like a mother ship waiting to transport you to a new golf awareness and enlightenment. I paid fairly for the hour, and wasn’t sold any worthless advice or trinkets – just genuine advice and instruction. Thanks to him, my game has entered a new dimension. Oh – I’m a beginner, but was inspired by the book by Michelle Kwan (olympian and new golfer), but don’t wish to get on a tangent and wander off topic. Thank you, brother Scott!

Definitely recommend Scott. He really is a good teacher and made a great impression on my game. Unlike other golf instructors I went to, who would patch some part of my swing, the fix would fade and be gone – way too soon. My slice would return, and it got to the point where I thought my home club would ban me! My game really turned me into an old grouch. Oh, there’d be times when the good swing would return but my sessions with Scott yielded solid, lasting fundamentals. No more rolling the dice! By the way I brought in my grandfather’s old busted hickory shafted clubs, and club techs Dick or Reese (pardon if names wrong) doctored them and they are near perfect. Great facilities, and thanks to all!

Recently my primary care physician, who is terrific by the way gave the ok for me to play golf again. I needed a kind, patient golf tutor and I found Scott online. Such a lovely and wonderful young man. Scott and and Dr Schlofmitz, two of my favorite!

Thanks Scott. Great fun with the lessons and I learned a lot. I don’t know about some of these reviews on here! Sounds like the last guy ‘jumped the shark’ with that effort. Anyway I highly recommend Scott.

Circling back-Scott gave us a lesson a little while back and I wanted to again thank to him. Great teacher, everyone. He’ll set you straight. Well, so to speak!

(PS to “George” – we did meet in the warm waters of a certain sunsplashed latitude! Oh those endless mimosa sunsets..btw those neoprene chaps (with the darling brocade and sequin inlay?) Left abso nada to the imagination and LarLar loved them! Now don’t think you can just throw around that Sulu money. He my boo.)

Thanks Scott. You helped my game, which was, well, a joke. Man, I’m telling you the truth. Scott was able to fix quite a few swing issues, so no longer
do I hear giggles and chuckles from the ‘nut gallery’- my golf buddies, bunch of comedians! I read about the other guy on this review page getting plugs for his golf boat- seems like I needed constant plugs too, and I mean seems almost every second I needed a plug of some kind – to get my game where it is now. My distances have improved, but I’m always wanting more from ‘the Boss’, you know! But here’s the bottom line: I don’t feel anymore like such a hack. Stand up to your golf demons, everybody! And call Scott!

Howdy partners out there. Just givin a Texas shout-out to Scott. He’s good stock and turns out he’s from ‘fly over’ country like myself – and mighty good at golf and you all should give him a call. I did and got right through. There’s everything there at the range you all would want to practice your game if you need special assistance, or if you are normal size and weight like myself. Well, really looking ahead to getting more playin’ time and next trip to the area I reckon I’ll bring the wife and kids along. Thanks and adios for now.

I’m hoping to get a lesson with Scott after waiting what has seemed like a very long time. I guess he’s popular but that’s besides the point. I’m guessing this is the best way to wait and get to see him. I heard he works with special needs like the diver who I guess his partner wrote in from some retirement community. Anyway I called Scott’s number but couldn’t get through. On Twitter someone said to try signing up here before 5 a.m. which I did and they would contact me which they didn’t. I don’t blame Scott or his company but I blame the person on Twitter for that inaccurate information. Another person on Twitter who said they also need a ramp and auto-tee and specialized restroom facilities and said to try here and if I couldn’t get Scott and also there’s female instructors Diana or Kelly that are hands-on teachers. Which would be fine because that’s probably the best way to learn. Anyway I’ll keep trying and have to remember to cancel my alarm which I set for 4 a.m. if you do contact me. For the time being, so long.
ps. If you contact me today or tomorrow please remind me to cancel my alarm so I can set it back to 8:25 a.m.

Thanks Scott E. !!

I used to consider myself a pretty good driver – my go to club – but lately when every shot you hit is a block, it’s no party. I was trying self-fixes, but always came up short, became easily frustrated, temperamental, really flying off the handle. I should have realized I was definitely not qualified for the job.

Thankfully I found Scott and he effectively deconstructed and then rebuilt my entire swing. With the visual playback aids we addressed problem spots, and basically plugged most if not all of the holes in my sinking ‘golf boat’! We discussed isometric home training modes – including using some hose I nailed against the wall – the flexible kind- for exercises that allow for max upper and mid-line stretch, and muscle group isolation/strengthening. Now I’m maxing flex, torque and lower body stabilization. My turn is complete and most importantly, my release is full.

Great facility- the sessions were very informative but really it was all about meeting the guys, and meeting the girls there. All terrific. Highly recommended.

Great instruction. And Scott reminds you, most importantly, to have fun with the game. Absolutely recommend

Fantastic teacher. Thank you Scott. I’ve been a golfer since I was a kid but my swing speed had gotten noticeably slow as an adult and frankly it was making me crazy! I desperately needed someone to help me ‘turn on the power’. With the new drills and techniques Scott taught me, I now don’t have to keep begging and begging for distance, especially off the tee. I really is remarkable. Outside of swing instruction we got to talking a little about course etiquette particularly around the greens. One of my peeves is unkempt greens and bunkers. Uggh!! I mentioned that at our home course each green has a small sign, with a “Mr Divot” emoji-type character that asks “somebody repair me”. And in each bunker we placed a small “somebody rake me” sign. It does actually work, everybody! Spread the word! Thanks again, Scott.

While in town last year for ComiCon my husband Brad and I decided to take a golfing lesson with Scott. He is terrific! I must tell you, it was great fun and although my game is in the proverbial brambles, as they say, I had quite the time! I learned so much and he has the patience of a saint. Thank you Scott!

By the way, this is terribly indulgent and please do forgive me but I noticed an earlier review on this very site from “JD and Larry”- It couldn’t possibly be, but I do believe we met them on a Pride Dive in Bimini! By precious coincidence our dive troupe included a devilishly mustachioed gentleman who went by the moniker “three-tank Larry” – heavens it must be you! What a small world! If perchance you two are reading this perhaps we’ll rendezvous, same island venue, at the Mangrove Trails gala and revue this year?!

Scott, great sessions. We addressed just about everything: Was having trouble with my rhythm. We fixed the herky-jerky backswing. Couldn’t figure out the distance of my special purpose hybrids. Now I get 225-250 big ones, easy out of the 4 wood thanks to the swing fix and shaft change. And around the greens I’m gradually learning to get optimal ‘grab’ instead of too much roll.

Serious thanks, your help has been a feather in my cap. I’ll try to make more Sundays full practice days (that is if the wife doesn’t drag me to church!)

I’m a maintenance engineer at a local healthcare facility. While in recovery (on the job TBI), I watched a fair amount of golf and became indelibly hooked. Never before played the game, but was determined to give it a go.

Found a great teacher in Scott. After a few Socratic-style sessions and more than a modicum of practice, he advised on the equipment to best compliment my skill set. I did insist on keeping my old Norman-era Cobra driver, which I discovered a while back in a bin at a yard sale, and was using to prop up the tomato plant. I can now really smack that club! Great distance, albeit more roll than carry – such as it is!

Echoing the sentiments of the preceding reviews, and fully recommending this instructor. Kudos Scott.

Highest recommendation. Scott’s insights and approach to teaching the game are no less equal to a master’s brushstroke. Combining an impressive fund of technical knowledge with the lost art of instruction, Scott methodically began repair on the random patchwork of disconnected gyrations, uncontrolled spasms and fantastical superstitions that sifted together into the sludge that described my swing.

Under his direction I now have a basic understanding of solid fundamentals. His style is not that of a stern taskmaster, rather he and his assistant (Bob?) both bouy your confidence with a tailored approach, allowing you to fully comprehend the essentials and develop your game at your own pace. And, of course, practice and more practice!

In truth I need to devote more time to the range, and in this regard I can’t help but reflect on my dear colleague and friend Father Heinrich “Hank” Thadd, with whom I’d periodically toss in a quick 9, or “neun”, as he’d say in his native German. On the occasion of a particularly well-struck ball, we’d drink in the splendor, and silently muse an age-old truth: “Only first, toil the hours in the lonely tower of practice..”

Plurimus gratiae magister!
(many thanks teacher!)

Thank you Scott. Great coach. My swing was a little rusty so while visiting family on vacation my wife Ellen treated me to a lesson. Found Scott – he took a good look at the plight that was my swing, and we got to work. On my whole game really-putting, chipping, etc. Around the green I was a serial chunker, but wScott’s help, my short game now has a little of the ol’ “pro varnish”. Scott was very knowledgeable and professional.

We’re 2nd yr UK cheer
besties, and visited San Diego -AWESOMENESS!! – on break. Decided at hotel bar 2d2bd and take golfing lessons, and we found Scott! He was great, the absolute best. We are definitely beginners with no clue :):):) but he was up to the challenge!! Such a gentleman he always smiled and gave good tips even when we dropped the club and it went into the range. He told us not to run after it and probably saved our lives!! And after the lesson he and the guys walked us to our Uber, thanks guys!!
Specially Scott, aka Tif and Amby’s Golf-God!!!

Great teacher, great facilities. Scott is tops. I bumped into him in the returns line at Best Buy of all places just after Super Bowl. Talked Brady and golf and before you know it I decide to try a few lessons. Best thing I ever did as I’m a weekend golfer. It’s amazing when your swing is up on video and their analyzer system to see where things are going and where they should be. Plus the advice on changes in your equipment that customs to your own swing. Thanks again Scott.

My partner Larry was in desperate need of major swing changes. Particularly on his take-away, which was, well..unusual. Scott did a masterful job-Larry referred me to him. In fact, we took lessons together! Scott was absolutely fantastic, and was able to work around Larry’s condition (submersion narcolepsy-a rare affliction that targets older divers). Scott’s depth of knowledge, patience and practicing tips were invaluable. I recommend him highly.

ps- I have to share this!

-we live in a retirement community, with an executive course. Now, with a renewed confidence in our game, Larry and I will even break out the glow balls for a round or two of night golf – just one of our delicious little diversions (although the condo Board can be a little..sassy about it, lol!) – but all in fun. Scott, thanks again. It’s all about fun, right?! Well, now golf is fun again!

Highest recommendation. I am a very low-handicap part-time player who had an issue with my set position at the top (it was ugly, folks!). With Scott’s tutelage, I was able to manage and maintain a proper planar apex wrist-cock, enabling a seamless, repeatable and efficient power transition into strike position. In fact, at a recent business event in Tokyo (I did rather well-modesty doesn’t permit!), the club pro there -old friend- complimented my newest swing dynamic: “kokku utsukushi”, which loosely means “beautiful set-position” !! Ari gatogozaimashita , Scott san!

Scott Engelland was my coach and I highly recommend him. He is very in tune with what you would like to accomplish and helps to get you there. I chose Golftec over traditional lessons simply because of the technology it offers. There is no better feedback than the practice time you get each week while seeing your swing on camera. You can draw all the lines you need (ie- swing plane) so you have constant feedback. If you like using training aids, they have every one you could ever think of at your disposal. In addition to the technology and training tools, Scott is extremely knowledgeable about the golf swing and always has multiple feelings or drills for you try until you get something right. All of these aspects tied together create a very good chance for you to improve your swing.
