Group as well as individual golf instruction is available for all player types throughout the year at Swenson Park Golf Course and Van Buskirk Golf Course. So whether you are a beginner golfer learning the basic fundamentals or an advanced player in need of a little swing tune up, Tony Troncale, PGA Professional is available to help you improve your golf game.
Golf Instruction is provided by Tony Troncale, a Life Member of the PGA and named a "Top 25 in Northern California" Instructor in 2004 by the publishers of the the Northern California Golf Guide. The benefit of working with a PGA Professional is that you have your own "personal trainer" to develop and improve your golf game.
Tony is proud to be a quarter-century club member of the PGA of America (plus the years going through the program, that’s 30+ years of dedication to the game). If you take lessons from someone other than a PGA Professional, you are missing out! We are trained professionals that have to re-certify regularly. Just because someone works at a golf course does not mean they are a PGA Professional – look for the certification!
Individual & group golf lessons are also available from other professionals on staff at the Stockton Golf Courses:
