What Parents are Saying

We have had an amazing relationship with Jon Bullas over the last three years. Our two sons Beni and Alex have flourished under Jon's expertise. Jon has developed a following in junior golf, such that his reputation speaks for itself. Both of our boys are moving to Lakewood Ranch from Canada for high school, and a key factor in their golf development will be working with Jon. It is our family's experience that role models such as Jon can have a lasting positive impact on young athletes.

"Our 10 year old son Chase, started playing golf 4 years ago. He was seeing a local golf professional in our neighborhood after school several days a week. His tournament scores were not getting below 50 on 9 holes. This was very frustrating for Chase since he was putting in a lot of time. We heard a lot of great things about Jon Bullas and his golf academy. Chase started with Jon several days a week and he almost immediately started shooting in the 40s! Chase most recently shot a 36 on 9 at the US Kids World Championships! To see Jon was a huge commitment for our family. We drove, 3 days a week, 35 - 45 mins to see him after school and did so for over 2 years! Jon not only is an amazing coach, but he is a great mentor to our kids. His golf academy is very well known and the kids that see him turn their game around."
