Your personal source for all your game improvement needs.These are not golf lessons with just 1 thing to work on and leave – those just don’t work. Nick has spent his career not only learning about golf development but creating the right environment for learning, from the facilities, to the people, but also the time commitment for a learning session.
I have spent almost a year developing a platform to showcase my services and ideas.The newly launched Nick Starchuk Golf APP can be found in the App Store and will hold all my lesson videos, information on lesson programming and all the online lessons for those looking for golf support without being face to face.I recommend all my current or prospective golfers to download the app and stay tuned to the daily uploads of content, ideas, or presentations.
The current accepted model for golf lessons seems to be the recurring 1 hour golf lesson but I’m not sure where someone’s improvement plan has to be limited to 1 hour. As such, and through my own participation at many golf schools by the world’s best teachers, I have developed a 4 hour half day Ball Striking and Short Game / Putting schools to ensure that golfers are able to learn new things and have their practiced supervised so that they can make 1 step forward without 2 steps back. In 2020, I had over 100 emails raving about scoring career low rounds within just a week of taking a school which is feedback that I never had before at the 1 hour recurring lesson model. These schools are not a blanket approach for every one. Each player receives the information and lessons that they need for their individual swing tendencies, using video feedback so that they can see, feel and understand the new concepts.
These schools are currently hosted at the world class TPC Toronto at Osprey Valley, just north of Toronto and held from Tuesday to Saturday at both 830am and 1pm. I limit each class to 4 participants in order to give it a private feel lesson and make sure that each person gets the attention that their individual swing deserves.

Putting Lessons & Fitting – Studio or Outdoors
There aren’t very many putting coaches out there, let alone in Canada, and since about 40% of your strokes are on the green, I have made it point to learn from the best specialists to provide the real reasons and fixes as to why you have too many putts.From Green Reading to an in depth 3D stroke analysis, I use technology to assist in the diagnosis as well as to confirm the prescription and break it down to a few easy concepts and games to play to help blend the mechanics with the performance.On top of just putting lessons, I am involved with putter companies to help offer the best indoor or outdoor fitting experience in Canada, as I am the only coach to develop a unique fitting system unavailable to anyone else.Tsquared Putters has the best tools I’ve seen to help me get players into the right length, loft, lie and look so that they can aim their putter and use it better.
Studio Lessons /Online Lessons
Canada has a dual golf season – summer and winter – and as a full time coach, I coach as many hours in the winter as in the summer.My private studio in Oakville allows for indoor practice and training when the courses are closed to make an improvement in your game so that when courses open again in the spring, golfers are ready for action with a new found accuracy and speed.Indoor lessons are limited and training is 3 months at at time because in order to make a significant change that lasts, we need more than a small series of lessons.
Junior Development “The Program”
“The Program” is the simple name I’ve used to describe my Junior Development Team.For golfers who are looking to play competitive golf with the chance to play in the NCAA, this program goes over all the details like swing speed and technique, physical strength and conditioning and a mental of psychological component to help develop confidence and a belief in their training system to get the most out of their game.Acceptance to the program is limited to 7 players annually with a interview process to determine if The Program is the right fit. To date, players in The Program have earned spots on Team Ontario, Team Canada and with the assistance of Brendan Ryan of Golf Placement Services, we have a 100% placement rate for junior golfers who choose to play NCAA golf at both Division 1 and Division 2 institutions.In the last 15 years, the players have excelled at schools such as Southern Mississippi, College of Charleston, Florida Southern, Ohio State, Cal Baptist, Queen’s U of Charlotte, Penn State, Ottawa U of Arizona, and St Louis Missouri, Michigan State, and more.
