A veteran, award-winning golf instructor, Nick Starchuk has spent his adult life searching for knowledge about the golf swing and the methods that will make his students better players. “My goal has always been to seek out coaches, doctors, and trainers and learn from the best so I have a holistic understanding of the best way to assist those who come to me for instruction,” says Starchuk. “That means spending time watching the best players in the game on the range at a PGA Tour event, or observing a great coach working with a new golfer. The goal is the same—to learn as much as I can. It is an never-ending process.”
Starchuk’s successes are in golf academy leadership, developing programs at Mississaugua Golf & CC and Glen Abbey Golf Club outside of Toronto over the last 15 years. Furthermore, Nick has also established himself as one of Canada’s leading educators on golf launch monitors and indoor simulation systems to further advance golf through Canada’s winter months. He has multiple fitness and mental coaching certifications, and has coached both college and professional golfers, currently works with Canadian Provincial and National team players as well as Professional on the MacKenzie Tour. His boutique style coaching sessions offer golfers access to a private environment and unique proven approach to improvement.
As a former NCAA Academic All American, Starchuk returned to Canada to share his experiences and expertise as a golf instructor and was fortunate to be part of a very active instructional team at Glen Abbey Golf Club. With the busy Toronto golf market, he was able to quickly fill his schedule and gain 10,000 hours of real world teaching experience. In addition to the many coaching styles he’s observed and seminars attended, his well rounded approach to the golf swing and ability to relay a message in many ways has continued to make him a sought after instructor for players looking to shoot lower scores, guaranteed.
Nick’s influences include TPI, Yoga, Biomechanics, and many of the other body and movement experts who have focused on golf. Mind coaches and mental performance specialists are continually discovering reasons and fixes for many of golf’s mental struggles and keeping up with the leaders and their published material is a never ending journey. There are many swing coaches to list and with the help of the internet and social media, Starchuk's network of influence is wide, from driving range teachers, national coaches, tour consultants, and covers many swing methods, styles, and technological optimal patterns so that each player who visits the Academy is able to receive the best information available.
