About Travis Glass
Growing up at Eagle Valley Travis Glass cultivated his game as a youngster. His persistence to perfect his game was annoying to staff members but his passion never died; leading him to his ability to understand the ambition of a young golfer. Travis believes in complete and thorough explanations during his teaching. His ability to communicate the logistics of the swing in a descriptive manner is simple, supplemented with analogies understandable and personally related to the student. His instructional methods use life experiences to add value to the learning, allowing the student to navigate through situations in life and on the golf course. His methods encourage the student in self-motivation and self-appreciation to reach academic and athletic excellence. Students will know what to do, how to do it, why they are doing it, and how to fix it on their own.
After a small stint in local colleges Travis left his home town to attend the Keiser University Golf Management Program in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Practicing at PGA Village under PGA of America Master professionals, Travis began to cultivate his own golf skills while beginning to understand the in depth ability to develop others. Each week Travis would volunteer his time, working under PGA of America hall of famer Donna White at Okeeheelee Golf Course’s junior academy. Travis received an award of excellence for his work with Junior Golf Foundation of America Inc.
