Deb has been my son’s golf coach for the last three years. They have worked together every week year-round so he has spent many hours with Deb. She has helped him tremendously with the different aspects of his game - mechanical, mental and emotional. His development as a junior golfer has been expertly guided by the positive and encouraging way she works with him. Deb has an intuitive understanding of golf from her own extensive experience and brings this to the table along with her gift for coaching. Deb wants the best for her students and is able to meet them at their level and explain with precision, care and kindness how to get to the next level. Every time my son has a lesson with Deb he always comes away with the same comment, “another great lesson!”

I have had the pleasure of working with Deb for many years now. Deb is my resource for when I need help on my own swing and we work together on many women's clinics.
Deb is an incredible instructor. She is organized , calm and efficient. I have referred many women to her for private lessons and anyone that has worked with her in our group lessons and retreats has benefited from her knowledge and delivery of information.
Because of her extensive golf history and her LPGA tour playing experience, Deb not only understands how to develop a swing for her students, she also understands the game. This makes her an excellent coach as well as instructor as she can add strategy and preparing for competition to her repertoire of skills.

As a senior golfer I knew I had to re-introduce my fairway woods to make up for my lost distance off the tee. Irons alone weren’t going to cut it. While I had tried on my own, I wasn’t able to consistently hit my woods from the fairway. Deb worked with me to assess my swing and made some specific adjustments to my weight distribution and stance. Throughout the lessons Deb was knowledgeable, patient and reassuring. Since working with Deb, I am hitting the ball like I did 20 years ago and dropping an average of 5 strokes from my score.
Thanks Deb, What a difference!
I have known Deborah Lee Eldridge for many years, in a variety of roles. As a top notch competitor, I watched her excel at the LPGA Qualifying School, earning her tour card. As a peer, I found her to be encouraging, honest and knowledgeable. As a teaching professional, Deb stands above the rest not just because of her vast experience and expertise, but because of her compassion and joy of teaching.
Deb is one of the rarest golf professionals, in that she can work with elite players who have aspirations of playing on tour, as well as beginners who simply want to get the ball up in the air.
If you want to improve your game, schedule a lesson with Deborah Lee Eldridge. You will be glad you did!

When it comes to improving your short game, many tools exist to guide you, however Deb makes it happen. Her coaching style helped me to understand the chipping techniques required to bring down my score. The round after the coaching session resulted in three chip-ins and most recently during a round of golf, I chipped in twice. Deb’s intuitive teaching method has improved my game and provided short game confidence.
Mrs. Deborah Lee Eldridge possesses a skillful aptitude of understanding what it takes for a person to be the best they can be, specifically the unique way she eliminates the recurrent overload of instruction a student faces when learning the daunting competencies of golf. She sets our minds at ease and then the body follows as it adapts with marked proficiency that only an accomplished Coach can offer. Coach Deb's prowess as a ChampionshipTournament Golfer gives her students supremacy to reach for the top of their games by her talent and by her wisdom.
These first-rate characteristics are reinforced by the way she cares for each one of her student's specific goals and paves a path for many successful outcomes. It is my wish to offer Coach Deb a hearty recommendation as one of the finest Coaches attainable!
