Diane Demick | Class A LPGA
Teaching golf has always been my Number One passion. To take a player at any skill level and improve their abilities in, and enjoyment of, the game is rewarding for me. Good Golf begins with solid swing fundamentals for a repeatable swing. With hard work and lots of practice and player can take their game as far as they want. I love to see the enjoyment people get from the game when playing to their potential.
I began as a member with the CPGA in 1993 and was the first Female CPGA Professional for Northern Ontario. Therefore I had to compete against the Men in Northern Ontario and in 1995 tied for second against 34 Male Professionals. At age 17, I was one of approximately 40 junior girls across all of Ontario to qualify to play in the Canadians. I continued to advance my teaching knowledge by working towards my five year LPGA Teaching licence.
As of 1999 I became a member of both Associations and each year have continued to sharpen my skills in teaching both the physical and mental part of the game. I also have various teaching aids including, Tomi (a putting analysis system), video analysis and lie board for club lie angle analysis. From 1999 to 2015 I worked at the private golf club at Big Bay Point. My titles included Greens Superintendent and Head Golf Professional, and duties included manager. I also obtained my Landscape Exterminator and IPM Agent licences to fulfill my Greens Superintendent duties. That training and extensive experience has also given me advanced knowledge of greens and how to read them.
My Philosophy is "I teach golf skills so that YOU understand what YOU need to do because if you understand what you need to do, you will have that skill forever"
I also love to assist players with physical issues to "keep them in the game". I work with the player and tweak their current swing to minimize their pain so that even with a body impairment that player can continue to play this GREAT game.
Golf IS a game for LIFE!
Once our daughter turned 5, we decided that this summer would be the right time for her to pickup golf. After meeting Diane and seeing how she taught other kids, we knew this would be the perfect fit. Our daughter has shown us confidence in her swing and often talks about the fun approaches Diane took that made the game of golf fun!
My family had the good fortune to meet Diane seven years ago and she has been my son’s golf coach ever since. We live about an hour away from where she is located but drive that distance to have her coach our son because we see the results that her instruction produces in him. She is patient and finds the right words to make what can be elusive for a child—the mechanics of a golf swing understandable for him. She finds a way to keep him focused in his lesson (not an easy task) and makes it fun. Diane displays the qualities that make a coach successful. She is dependable, motivated and is in tune with the needs of her students. I highly recommend her as a golf instructor.
I needed something to change in my swing. After a round of golf my back was very sore. After a quick analysis by Diane, she was able to quickly address a change that provided significant relief after a round of golf. It also saved me a couple strokes!
My husband has been trying to get me to golf for years. For some reason golf just wasn't my thing. After hearing about Diane from a friend I decided to give golf a try. I called Diane and arrange for a couple private lessons to see if things would change. Diane took the time to properly explain my swing and in no time had me hitting the ball straight. My husband and I then had a couples lessons and started enjoying the game as a couple. I will be back to see Diane again soon as one day I hope to win a round!
When addressing the ball, it is important to remember to keep your eyes on the ball
Before putting the ball you need to properly assess the green.
The key to hitting the ball 300 yards is in the mechanics of your swing
