Greg AndersonGreg’s passion for golf started in Santa Rosa at the age of seven when he would loop the nine holes at Wikiup Golf Club from morning until night while his older brothers worked his parent’s swim and tennis club next door. As his love for the game continued to grow, he joined the junior membership at Santa Rosa G&CC at the age of twelve. Surrounded by young, talented juniors, he pursued his desire for the sport at a higher level and competed in Northern California junior golf tournaments throughout high school.

After graduating from Cardinal Newman High School, Greg played on the golf team for two years at Santa Rosa Junior College and continued his college journey at the University of San Diego where he represented the NCAA Division 1 team as the #1 player. A week after graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Greg started his golf career working for American Golf Corporation as the Assistant General Manager at Tilden Park GC in Berkeley.

As a member of the PGA of America with service as General Manager, Director of Golf, Head Golf Professional, and Director of Instruction, Greg’s career has taken him to Princeville Resort on the island of Kauai, to country clubs in Los Angeles County, and to golf course developments in Santa Rosa and Santa Barbara. He has always returned home, however, to work in Sonoma County, where he resides with his wife and twenty-year-old son.

Although Greg has worked all facets of the golf industry, including hosting golf and wine tours through his business, GolfVino, his true passion remains teaching the game. He trained under some of the best golf instructors in the business, including Jim Flick, Jack Lumpkin, Bob Toski, Paul Runyan, Dean Reinmuth, and Rick Smith. Greg is known for his keen eye in swing analysis, excellent coaching ability, and personable communication with members and guests.

With over 25 years of coaching the game of golf, Greg brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Next Level Golf and Fitness. Through his Greg Anderson Golf Academy, he averaged over 1000 students per year, with a special emphasis on year-long junior golf programs. Students appreciate that he teaches people, not necessarily methods, and he is well versed in all the current techniques and embraces using high tech equipment to validate  his message.

Notes of Appreciation:

I just wanted to thank you for the lesson. I shortened up my swing throughout the bag and for the first time I’m under a three handicap.

I thought the first lesson went well. I appreciate the manner in which you teach…watching me take a few swings and then basically giving me just one thing to really work on. I’ve walked away from lessons before either having so many things to remember to do or having a swing so screwed up I couldn’t even hit the ball.

I have played about 6 times since our lesson. I hit one slice with my driver, that is all! I frequently will hit a bit of a fade but it isn’t bad at all. I’m even getting some pars again. I was ready to quit golf with the excuse that I am getting too old at 75 (before the lesson). Now I am enjoying myself again on the course. Thanks, you saved my golf.
