Derek CarlsonHead Golf Professional Deer Creek Golf Club 317-539-2013 I am a 2001 graduate from Tri State University in Angola, IN where I earned a bachelors degree in Golf Management. After graduation I worked at Fremont CC in Fremont Ohio and Sylvania CC in Sylvania Ohio, studying under Jim McGurk, a Jim Mclean School instructor. Then I moved to Fort Wayne, IN at Orchard Ridge Country Club where I assisted in the development of the junior golf program, parents as coaches. I enjoy teaching the game of golf to all ability levels and I know we can customize a program to fit your needs. I teach students the game of golf in a fun, energetic environment while incorporating basic fundamentals all players need to maximize their potential. I apply my students in many different situations, helping them to grasp all the concepts of this great game in an easy to understand, low pressure environment.
