Golf Leadership Academy

About Matthew Howe

Early Saturday morning, when most kids were at home sleeping or just waking up to turn on cartoons, Matt Howe was tying up his boots, getting ready to do his weekend duty of picking golf balls at the local driving range. Hitting golf balls after his shift, and following the local pro around watching him give lessons, is where he found his passion for golf and coaching. It followed him to high school where he was awarded the captain position his senior season, and was given the coaches award for outstanding leadership at year's end.

In 2013 he started his golf career as an Assistant Golf Professional at Western Golf and Country Club. With a combination of great training and a willingness to learn, he was able to earn the Director of Instruction position at West Shore Golf and CC in 2015. It was the 2015 season that he was able to put his teaching philosophy to the test full time. It is his mission to grow the game, to show golfers how to achieve their goals in golf, get the students to play to their full potential, and have fun while doing it. To ensure that the junior golf programs provide the juniors the best opportunity to learn and get better, he became a certified coach from Top 100 Master Teacher Henry Brunton.

The golf coaching model provides golfers with a fun and safe learning atmosphere that will allow the students to play to their full potential on the course. With skill development and process driven exercises, the golf coaching model allows all golfers of any ability the opportunity to get better!
