Who is Leslie?

Doubt yourself and you doubt everything you see.
Judge yourself and you see judges everywhere.
But if you listen to the sound of your own voice,
you can rise above doubt and judgment.
And you can see forever.
~Nancy Lopez

The game of golf requires exceptional honesty coupled with personal and professional integrity. I take these skills with me, along with patience and persistence, on and off the course. Through competitive tournament play, working as an LPGA instructor, and personal golf coach, I’ve gained substantial experience in leadership and team building skills.

My goal as an instructor/coach is to help people of all ages and abilities discover the enjoyment of golf as a lifetime sport. My hope is everyone who plays golf enjoys the benefits of a sport that builds character and maintains an active lifestyle.
