Student Testimonials

Thomas E. Parent, MD

I have completely rebuild my golf swing with Dennis Clark. I have never made as much progress in such a short time as with Dennis. You will be lucky to have him as your Instructor.

Joe Nieporte, PGA

I was fortunate to grow up under the tutelage of my father Tom Nieporte, the long time head pro at Winged Foot, a three-time winner on the PGA Tour and last club pro to win on Tour, the 1967 Bob Hope Classic. I was exposed to lots of great pros, but it wasn’t until I met Dennis Clark that I really understood the true meaning of helping people correct their golf swings. Dennis has a great eye and can pretty much correct any swing. He has great command of teaching greenside shots as well. I will always be grateful to Dennis for teaching me how to help my students have more fun playing through better understanding their games. If you’ve never experienced a DC clinic, I highly recommend it. It is both enlightening and entertaining.

Charles D. Varela, MD

With our impending empty nest, my wife and I finally decided to take the time to get serious about our golf games. To start with, we wanted to learn a real golf swing to find that elusive consistency and accuracy. After investigating our options, we decided to work with Dennis Clark. Too bad we didn’t do it sooner. Dennis taught us how to swing the club in a straightforward and comprehensible way that a recreational golfer can grasp. In addition, Dennis made the lessons fun and interesting with his wit and knowledge of the game and its history. Highly recommend!

Jim Markovitz

I’ve been fortunate to know Dennis for more than 12 years. I was recommended to him by a well established club professional from our area. It was one of the best decisions of my life as a golfer and a person. I can honestly say without his knowledge for the swing, dedication to helping his students, and mentorship, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Zak Kozuchowski, Editor of

I worked with Dennis Clark on my swing for nearly three years, and despite limited practice time he helped me play the best golf of my life — and ultimately make the decision to turn professional.

As the editor of GolfWRX, I’ve collaborated with Dennis on instruction articles that have helped millions of golfers improve their games. What he does in print is exceptional, but what he’s able to do on the lesson tee is truly world class.

To me, Dennis the ideal teacher for anyone who wants to play better golf. He is undeniably old school, but is also engaged with new technologies that are so important to modern teaching. I’ve met few coaches who understand all of the game’s complexities, yet teach it with such great simplicity. I only wish I had met him sooner.

Robert Rohanna, PGA Latin America Tour

Dennis and I have been working together for more than a decade. I owe a lot of where I am today with golf to him. His knowledge about the game and swing is like no other.

David Simpson

Had an assessment with Colton and I thought it was excellent. I got a lot of feedback and could see where my swing flaws were. He gave me some things to work on, so I will do that and certainly reach out in the future. He is a really good instructor and communicator.

Chris Panek

I had 2 excellent lessons with Bernard at the Impact Zone. I was on a golf trip and was really struggling with my swing. Luckily we found Bernard and he was able to give me some great instruction to salvage my game on the trip. I went from a terrible hook to some of the best ball striking I’ve had in years. I look forward to working with Bernard remotely from New Jersey and I will be seeing him on my next trip to Naples. Do yourself a favor and book some lessons with Bernard.

Brandon Iseminger

Was awesome working with Paul. Going thru a grip change right now and it’s a struggle but my game is starting to come back around and I can already see major improvements. Highly recommend I wish I could take lessons more often.

Dar Th

I had Paul as my instructor and he was so insightful, he helped me right away! I’m a sub 10 HCP and it’s hard to find pro’s with his level of insight. I was very impressed and my random hook is gone! I really like the Impact Zone instruction, it’s so clear. I’m hooked!
