REVIEWS

  • Donna, I wanted to let you know that Liam is playing on the CJGA Linkster tour which he joined last season finishing in the top 10 at all his tournaments! He is doing so well and loving every minute. Thank you for being such an instrumental influence in his young career. You gave him an opportunity to start learning at such a young age and we are so grateful for that. Thank you so much!

  • I started with Donna in the spring and have continued taking lessons with her ever since. I may not know a lot about golf but having been a teacher myself I know an excellent teacher when I work with one. She is patient and knowledgeable as well as being a wonderful human being.

    Susanne Egier - Richmond Hill, ON
  • This is my 5 star review on Donna Norman!  I have been receiving her words of golf wisdom, for probably 5 years.  Her love of the game comes through her lessons and she wants you to also feel this love with progress in the game.  Donna is patient and will go over the instruction until you not only get it, but feel it.  She is genuine, caring, honest, sincere and I just love her!!

    Linda Bishop
  • I was a bit skeptical about lessons, I wasn’t sure my golf game would improve all that much. Boy, was I wrong!. My iron game has drastically improved and I will continue to recommend you to my colleagues and peers who enjoy the game!

    Nelson S.
  • I really enjoyed my lesson with you! The change in mindset that you achieved has changed everything. I now feel like I know how to swing the club and I can simply focus on playing the game confidently. Thanks very much Donna!

    Dave H.
  • Just a comment on the assistance Donna Norman provided to me through supervised practice last winter. I'm seeing it in my game.  I hit the ball straighter and with more confidence, and my swing is easier and more natural. Donna’s approach was much more intuitive than I expected.  She provided some simple drills to help me change for the better, and I shot my first 90 at Richmond Hill this season! I will certainly be back to her for more help in the future, and will also recommend her to friends and family!
