Academy

Meet Thomas Johnson!

aka “Coach Tommy”

Tom has been playing golf for over 50 years.  For eleven years he studied under the tutelage of PGA Pro George Bayer (winner of 6 PGA tour events), at the Detroit Golf Club.  Tom also attended the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy at Bayhill C.C. in Bay Hill, Florida.

In 2018, Thomas started teaching junior golf at the Grand Traverse Resort Golf Academy (and still does).  Thomas also played a vital role in the success of Elmbrook’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun League” last season.  He will continue teaching & working with the “Girls” this season as well as working with a new group of ladies in our newest league, “Girls Golf League”.

“Coach Tommy” is thrilled to be teaching both juniors and adults at Elmbrook.  His passion for the game of golf is contagious and his teaching techniques are well received by golfers of any age!

Junior Clinics (ages 6-14)

Start your Junior Golfer on a solid foundation with a  junior golf clinic at Elmbrook Golf Course.

You’d like your kids to get excited about golf, or maybe they already are. It’s important at this stage to find a golf coach who will build a relationship with your young golfer as well as build their enthusiasm for the game.
