From a Colleague...

Richard A. “Rick” Bell is the consummate golf professional. Rick earned his PGA Professional status in 1984 and has worked as both Club Professional and Teaching Professional ever since.

In 1993, he added the title of Sports Psychologist to his long list of achievements, enabling Rick to help his students better understand the all-important mental approach to your golf game. As well, in 2016 Rick completed the PGA Certification Program and is now one of only 21 PGA Teaching Professionals who have attained that status. 

Whether you wish to simply “groove” your swing, desire to create a new one or want to become a “complete” golfer, Rick is definitely the guy to call.
