Most importantly, Greg never forgets that golf is a game, and games are made to be fun!

Greg Bokenkamp

Golf Instructor

Greg has been a part time resident of Mammoth Lakes since 2002, having been lured away from his home state of Vermont by his love for snowboarding, deep snow and warm sun. Luckily for us, Greg also has a passion for golf. He holds an Associate’s degree in Golf Course Operations and Management from the Golf Academy of America in Carlsbad, CA, where his skills on and off the course earned him their highest honor: The President’s Award. Since graduation, Greg has been honing his teaching skills through family clinics and junior programs at various clubs across the US, including Ocean Edge Golf Club in Cape Cod and, most recently, Sierra Star Golf Club here in Mammoth Lakes.

We are thrilled to have Greg on our team. His unique approach to teaching uses simple ideas to help students understand what they can do with their body, mind and golf club to get the ball where they want it to go!
