What Dale Smigelsky, Director of Golf at Collindale Golf Club, has to say about the Collindale Golf Academy and Club Fitting team:
"It’s not often that you have things come together just right, but that happens to be the case for the Collindale Golf Academy.
I began my search hoping to create a team that was at least as qualified, in each area, as I felt that I was. What came forward were individuals that are better in their strengths than I am, and I consider myself to be a good teacher, Club Fitter, and communicator! This instructor just blew me away! Our club fitter is a professional I am proud to have on staff! I’m confident that when you experience Collindale Golf Academy , you will be impressed with the extent of knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail, quality of facility, demeanor and value that we have to offer. Our goal is to create a place where everyone is comfortable with all aspects of instruction and equipment, and to have you as a customer for life. When it comes time for help with your game, or to purchase the most affordable equipment, please come see us at Collindale, I personally guarantee you’ll be glad you did."
