Ross Kroeker, PGA Golf Instructor


Ross is the Head Golf Professional at Salinas Fairways Golf Course.  He can be reached at 831-758-4653 or by email ross@salinasfairways.com.

Using a straightforward approach, time-tested technique and the benefit of modern technology, Ross helps his students gain immediate improvement with sustained results. With over 20 years of teaching experience, Ross understands how to help students play better golf and shoot lower scores.

“Rather than trying to make every golfer’s swing look picture-perfect, I help students advance their current skills to achieve improved and consistent results. In addition, I guide the student to a complete set of golf skills that will help them become a better player.”

Ross was selected by Jim Flick to join the acclaimed staff of the Nicklaus/Flick Golf Schools in 1994. He was a lead instructor for the ESPN Golf Schools and is a Master Instructor with Bobby Clampett’s IMPACT ZONE Golf.

Swing mechanics are only part of the equation to playing better golf. Ross’ curriculum includes a complete set of skills to facilitate a player’s on-course improvement; goal setting, effective practice plans and developing a strong mental game are essential elements to a player’s sustained improvement. An excellent short game instructor, Ross emphasizes similarities between the full swing and short game. He can also provide a physical analysis of golf strength and flexibility and recommend exercises for physical performance.

Ross uses the most advanced video technology to help you see yourself in motion and understand his recommended swing adjustments. With a Casio FX-1 high speed video camera (300 fps) combined with V1 Golf Analysis Software and a daylight readable laptop it is easy to see your swing in crystal clear detail. After the lesson, a summary video of the key points of the session is made available to download from the internet. You can go back and view this video as often as you like.
In addition to the video, Ross uses training aids and drills to help you understand and feel the recommended adjustments to your swing.
