About Liz Gentile
I have truly enjoyed working with Liz on my golf game. In a short span of six months she has helped me build a solid swing foundation and helped me rid myself of poor technique and habits that I accumulated over the course of my entire life as a recreational golfer. She is very patient. Taking lessons with Liz has renewed my interest in the game and I am looking forward to seeing the results of my hard work out on the course.

Liz is a great instructor, she breaks it down so that it is understandable and easy to achieve in terms of adjusting your posture, swing, etc. We only had a few lessons but I already see an improvement in my game. Cannot wait for more lessons!

I've been working with Liz for many years. My game has improved (I went from a 22 handicap to my lowest a 7) and I understand the golf swing more than I ever thought I would. Her ability to focus on the most important aspects of the swing and your mental approach at that moment never ceases to amaze me. I have referred my friends and golf partners to her and all have come back with better results. I highly recommend her as a personal swing coach and consider her a personal friend.

Liz. I truly enjoy working with you. You have a way of showing the fundamentals with ease and patience. I enjoy the fact that you don’t try to cram too many skills all at once. You stay with me till I perfect a skill and than move forward to another skill.

I  finally was able to play a round of golf yesterday  after my one hour lesson 10 days ago. I picked up a number of pointers during that time but focused on my grip feeling "right" as you suggested. It worked. I had 16 out of 18 decent shots from the tee adding 20-30 yards each time with my driver. Playing again today and tomorrow. If your ears are ringing then, it's just me resounding a "Thank you Liz " for another good shot. Thanks again. I will be back soon.  
Sincerely, Dee 
Liz, the last lesson was so helpful! I've broken the 95 curse with 87 & 88 the last 2 days and the ball is going to places further away than I've ever been. Hopefully I can keep my thoughts under control and enjoy the success!! 

Thanks so much
See you soon

Liz Gentile, LPGA Instructor, Class A

I am a dedicated teacher who has happily devoted more than 30 years to teaching and playing the game of golf professionally. My goal is to help you improve so that you can be the best that you can be. This is always what I wanted for myself and I want it for you also! Below I have shared a bit about myself so that we can get to know each other. I look forward to getting to know you too.

My career began in Florida where I learned to play golf in order to become a tournament player. I was a 23 year old athlete and was under the impression that I could learn this game in no time flat. It took me over four years - and hitting literally thousands of golf balls to become good enough to compete as a pro. Longer than I wanted but it was a good lesson and to this day I can appreciate what goes into establishing a good, dependable golf game. After a short but enjoyable period playing tournament golf I moved to New York to teach golf in the Metropolitan New York area. The many years I taught in the Met area provided a great experience for me. I now share my playing and teaching and knowledge with a wide and diverse following at my present location, Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course in Fairfield, CT.

In the early days I was privileged to have been around a lot of wonderful professional players and teachers. Jack Nicklaus lived just around the corner and often practiced at the course I worked at…. we had a very large practice area (my first golf job was picking up range balls here) where Jack could hit his driver without fear of losing his practice balls! His book,
Golf My Way, was literally my bible when I was learning the game so you can imagine how lucky and fortunate I was to have been exposed to this and more in my early years.

Today, my energies go exclusively to teaching individuals how to play better golf. All golf professionals are knowledgeable in the golf swing but a very good teacher needs to be able to communicate with his or her students effectively. My experience in learning and teaching has led me to fully appreciate this and I devote my energies to helping each student of mine to hear, see, feel and experience what I believe they most need to so that they can be the best that they can be.

Over the years I have taught hundreds of individuals about golf. Below are the golf clubs and courses where I’ve previously been privileged to work and play out of.
