Hi! I’m Heather.
"As a Golf Instructor, I want my students to understand that golf is something to learn for the rest of your life. After playing golf for more than 20 years, I am still learning, meeting new people, and seeing new places.
Golf can open many doors, whether it is trying to raise money for charities, or play on a team.
And learning to play golf teaches you many life lessons. I always tell my students that no one wakes up and is suddenly good at golf. It takes a lot of time and practice to get good at golf, just like anything else. When you start to see improvement, or a return on your investment, it is extremely rewarding."
About Heather King Golf
Hello, my name is Heather King, and I am Golf Professional from San Diego. Golf has been in my life from early on; I started to play when I was 8 years old. I played golf in high school and went on to get a golf scholarship to become a Division I Athlete at San Diego State University. I played for 5 years and earned my degree, both of which were great accomplishments for me. And golf did not end for me after college. Instead, I went on to became a PGA Professional.
Becoming a PGA Professional was then my greatest accomplishment. Just this last year I won Assistant Golf Professional of the Year in the San Diego, CA PGA Chapter. Golf has been a great accomplishment in my career but also has led me to accomplishments in playing the sport. The last two years, I was able to represent Southern California PGA in the Cup matches where the top 8 Women Amateurs in Southern California play the top 8 Women PGA Professionals at Mission Hills Golf Course in Palm Desert, CA.
Now being a PGA Professional, my greatest accomplishment is to give the gift of golf to many other men and women. Growing the game is my passion and through teaching golf I get to give back to a sport that has given so much to me.
