Meet The Instructor


While his knowledge and expertise will put them on the path to a better game, it is their understanding, hard work, and dedication that determines their success. Golf is a very challenging game that at many times is difficult to comprehend. Terry will lay it all out and help any golfer of all levels toward anything they choose to achieve in golf.
His career currently spans 44 years and began after his college golf days at the Bethesda Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland. It is here where he began to articulate his teaching methods based on the work of four different PGA Professionals. Since then, Terry worked in different capacities as a Head Golf Professional-Director of Golf, Teaching Professional, Division I College Coach at two different universities and more.
Currently Terry is the Director of Instruction at the National Golf Club at Tantallon in Fort Washington, Maryland. He is so excited to see anyone interested in learning and improving their skills at golf. Take the time to check him out! It will be well worth your while!

Throughout all this, teaching has been one of his most important priorities. Through the years his students have gone on to tremendous achievements in golf from making it to the PGA Tour, to what is now called the Kornferry Tour, winning college golf championships, and most recently one of his students was selected to receive the Charlie Sifford Memorial Exemption Award for 2023.
All PGA Professionals are tasked with, as a mantra, growing the game of golf. It is in their DNA. As a result, Terry finds tremendous joy getting newcomers involved with the game. It is so rewarding to see success on all different levels. Therefore, Junior golfers and beginner golfers are truly the future of the game of golf. Terry believes so! He has dedicated his life to his students and this great game.
