Whether working with the beginner whose goal is to make contact, all the way up to top high school talent looking to play in college, our team is best suited to help you reach your goals."
In 2020, Toptracer was installed at the Mistwood Performance Center, further elevating the course's public golf experience. The facility also features 11 heated hitting stations for all-season practice, and two teaching/club fitting bays utilizing all of the latest in state-of-the-art technology.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.

It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
