What Athletes Are Saying
When I first came to see Jeff I was a 14-index with unrealized potential. Jeff helped me learn the proper swing path and efficient routes to that path. Lots of drills, feedback devices, encouragement, golf stories, videos…and patience. As my physical skills progressed we worked on the mental side, how to manage the course, creative shot-making, and how to score. I now play to a 5-index, and believe the best is yet to come.
Jeffrey Ross senior golfer
My name is Kathy and I have been a student of Jeff Coston since July, 2006. For years I played competitive amateur golf but was never able to improve my performance. I had lofty goals of competing at the highest levels of amateur golf but a swing and a mental game that would not allow me to advance. I knew that by seeking out not only a top notch player but the best PGA teaching professional in the state, I would finally be on the right track. I was very fortunate to become a student of Jeff’s. When I first came to Jeff I had good basic fundamentals but a swing that would require a lot of re-work. I was strongly committed, as was Jeff, to improving my swing so I could ultimately achieve my goals. I didn’t play golf as a junior and first picked up the game at the age of 28. Golf is a challenging game even for young people, but taking it up later in life is twice as hard. I have improved dramatically over the last three years with Jeff as my coach. I had my most successful season thus far in 2009 by winning the first flight of my club championship. I was also runner-up in the SWGA City Championship in my flight. For the first time ever I was able to play in the USGA Women’s Mid-Amateur Qualifier and also qualified for the Golf Channel Amateur Tour National Championships that was held at PGA West. I want to thank Jeff for his time and commitment, patience, and excellent instruction.

Jeff Coston, in my opinion, is the best golf instructor in the Northwest. He has helped me in all apsects of my life, and his caring attitude goes beyond the golf course. The instruction Jeff gives comes with great passion for the game. After years under his guidence I realize all the aspects to becoming successful in golf. He not only touches on the mechanics of the golf swing, but also emphasizes the importance of the mental game. Thank you Jeff for all the years of growth you have given me in my admiration for the game of golf.
Jeff Neeley college player
I’ve been working with Jeff Coston for 4 years now. When I first started working with Jeff I had only been golfing for 4 years. I spent many rounds struggling and fumbling my way around the golf course. Not really improving, I had peaked, plateaued, felt frustrated. Now that I am working with Jeff he has helped me to improve all aspects of my game by giving me the tools I need to get the job done, while making learning fun!! He’s able to explain and show you in many different ways so that you are able to understand what you need to accomplish your goals. My handicap has dropped and is still dropping!! Thanks Jeff!!”

Jeff Coston has helped me improve my game in ways I didn’t even know were possible. He helps me set goals and meet them. We spend lots of time working on all aspects of my game and make improvements using a wide variety of techniques that really help me learn and improve my skills. Since beginning these lessons, I’ve come to love the game even more.

Over the past two and a half years or so, I have been going to Jeff Coston for golf lessons. In this timeframe Jeff has taken me from a golfer who was struggling to break 90 to the college golfer I am today. I have enjoyed our journey the entire time. Jeff has a way of relating golf to other sports in a way that helps clarify the swing thoughts. I have never met or heard of a golf instructor that cares as much as Jeff does about the well-being of his students. What separates Jeff Coston from every other golf instructor besides his impeccable playing record, experience, and his vast knowledge of the game is his passion for teaching and his love of the game and of his students. I would recommend the Jeff Coston Golf Academy to everyone and anyone who wants to become a better player.

Jeff has been one of the most important people in my golf and in my life. Through his instruction he enabled me to accomplish the goals we set and helped me mentally and emotionally along the way.

Jeff doesn’t just show you how to swing a golf club, he breaks down the game in a way that anyone can learn from and take with them forever.
The greatest thing Jeff has taught me is how to practice with a purpose to get the most out of my time. It’s one thing to go out and smack balls. It is another to go out and have a game plan on what you want to accomplish with your swing and how you are going to do that. The Jeff Coston Golf Academy isn’t just a place to work on your golf game, it is a place to build relationships. Jeff truly cares about each student and isn’t just a golf coach, but a mentor in life as well.
Katya Case college player
Great teachers combine knowledge, skill, understanding and communication not just to learn, but to enjoy the process of learning. Jeff Coston has the perceptive eye and the knowledge of competitive golf to pinpoint areas in your game that need improvement. He then develops a series of activities and learning points for you to improve your game within minutes. His friendly manner and easy going way of communicating get the points across loud and clear and in a way that you come away from the lesson with inspiration and a sense of accomplishment. Jeff has an amazing work ethic; it’s helped him be the best competitive golfer in the Pacific Northwest, but it also has guided him to put 110% into your private golf lesson. I’m not just a better golfer, I’m a better golf strategist, too. Amazing.
Shaun Hughes senior golfer
Jeff is an amazingly inspirational and hard-working instructor as well as a competitive tournament golfer. Jeff’s dedication is evident by his rigorous practice and teaching schedule that continues through rain or shine, and the occasional snow.
