About John Piccolo

 It’s hard to believe but our Head Golf Professional John Piccolo is entering his 24th year of teaching here in Niagara. How does a guy with no formal training come to be one of the most respected golf instructors in a very competitive industry?  John did it the Ben Hogan way--spending thousands of hours digging his own swing out of the dirt of his backyard and fifteen thousand more observing the swings and habits of his students on the range.  Combined with his study of most of the great golf instruction of the past 100 years and, through his keen understanding of the game “between the ears”, John has the reputation of using just the right piece of instruction for just the right person at just the right time. With 25 years of club making and fitting experience he is also able to help you understand the connection between the swing and the club, and the thought process that helps you trust the two together.


 From his decade working golf course maintenance and his time teaching golf management, strategy and leadership courses at Niagara College, John has the insight needed to understand and communicate this game from all perspectives. He is also able to tap into his many years coaching rowing, hockey, and writing about golf, and use all these experiences to find the way that helps maximize a student’s ability with the time they have available. 


 Golf is a simple game made complicated by those who don’t understand. There is only one reason to play this game: To be happier than you would be if you didn’t play. If you often feel less happy during or after your golfing experience, John can help with that.


You can e-mail John directly at if you have any further questions.


Whether you’re new to golf or looking to perfect your swing, you’ve come to the right place.
