Dennis Downs, PGA

Instructor

Dennis Downs has been a PGA Class A Professional since 2004. He graduated the Arizona State University Professional Golf Management Program with his Bachelor's Degree. Dennis has spent a couple years of his career traveling around the country running a mobile club fitting and club repair business. He spent 10 years as a golf professional at Sun City Grand.

"I enjoyed my time at Sun City Grand as the Head Golf Professional of Desert Springs G.C. However, my real passion is for teaching and playing competitive golf. I am tremendously excited to join the Reid West Golf Academies as a Director of Instruction at Pebble Creek Resort. I would love the opportunity to show you how to improve your golf game. In my opinion, golf is not a game of "right way" and "wrong way". Golf is simply a game of cause and effect. No matter your skill level, I can help you understand the cause and effect within your stroke, swing, routine, mental game and your overall game. Learn why the ball does what it does, why your swing does what it does, how to manipulate it and control it for better shots and better scores".
