Golf Swing Philosophy
Allan received his training from 2 of the top 10 teachers in America (Craig Shankland & Gary Wiren) and has attended functions with many others. Every person possesses their own unique style and tendencies during the golf swing. There is no model golf swing – the most important position in golf is impact – because that determines the distance, direction and trajectory of the golf ball.

She took up the game of golf as an adult, after playing her first round with Dad at the age of 24 she found herself hooked. After taking a beginner clinic to learn the basics of the golf swing, she dove into learning all she could about the game and her swing. She also starting thinking about how to make this game she loved into a second career.

She became a PGA Member in 2008 and the Director of Golf at Berkleigh Golf Club in Kutztown, PA in 2010. The opportunity to join the Club Corp family in 2014 was something she couldn’t pass up.
Adrienne found teaching to be her passion so she began studying from some of the best teachers in the industry.

She is a student of the game and continues her education with seminars, observing players and teachers, researching the latest in technology and teaching techniques and taking golf lessons herself.
