Dan Chicorel PGTAA Teacher at Monarch Bay


Monarch Bay Golf Club
Tilden Park Golf Club

Beginners are welcome!

New to the game? Do not fret, you are not alone. We’ll cover the basics during our beginning series of lessons: grip, posture, ball position, and understanding how a swing works, and ultimately teaching you the FEEL of a swing. The golf swing is similar to a carefully choreographed dance routine. Each body part has to be synchronized to create a fluid, effortless motion.

It's All About The Short Game!

In addition to the full swing, we'll address the “short game”: putting, chipping, reading greens, pre-shot routines, and a host of other integral pieces to help you perform at your best. Did you know nearly 65% of all your golf shots come from putting and chipping?

Play Better Golf

Lessons can accelerate your learning curve. The game is challenging, and you’ll want objective feedback using state of the art video technology to help you playing better golf as soon as possible.

Maximize your skills and play better golf!

About Dan Chicorel

Greetings. I hail from the midwest, originally from Detroit and raised in Milwaukee. I attended the University of Wisconsin as a communication and music major. I've worn numerous hats in life: sportscaster, franchise owner, marketing professional, jazz musician and now a Master teaching golf professional. A lifelong athlete (baseball and hoops), I started playing golf in my late 20's. I developed a passion and love of the game studying it and achieving success over time. Taking a chance on myself, I pursued teaching in my 50's. It was the best decision of my life. Having learned the hard way (pre-YouTube era and as my own coach), my goal is to teach you the best fundamentals and cut your learning curve way down so YOU can enjoy this game sooner than later! I have lived in Northern California since 1995 and am the proud father of a son, step-dad to two great kids and now grandfather to a beautiful boy born in 2023. I have been with my wife since 2005 and without her love and encouragement, none of this would be possible. Plus she'd kill me if I didn't mention my love for her 😉 We are the proud parents of Lola the "Bugg" (Pug/Boston Terrier) and Coco the pug 🙂 I look forward to having the chance to work with you in the near future. Keep Swinging (hopefully inside to out)!

Amazing Results

Don't take my word for it... here's what satisfied students have to say.

Dan has been coaching my 9 year old son since summer. He is an affable and effective coach for my son. Although my son was not an absolute beginner Dan has definitely brought consistency and accuracy to his swing.

We never feel rushed when with Dan, he's always attentive and sensitive to my son's mood. I highly recommend Dan to any parent considering lessons for their kid.

Dan Chicorel is a fantastic teacher. I am very new to golf and required lessons on all the fundamentals. Dan educated me on the basics of golf technique like grip, posture, addressing the ball, as well as golf rules and etiquette. I still have a long way to go, but Dan's lessons have prepared me to at least keep up with my friends.

Started seeing Dan over the summer. He uses video and compares it to professionals to help illustrate inefficiencies in your swing and then suggests minor tweaks to optimize distance and consistency. He's an attentive instructor who takes the player's goals into consideration before making suggestions. Went from high single digit HC to low single digit HC since working with Dan. Would recommend him for golfers of any ability level or experience.
