“I began taking golf instruction from  Mike a few months ago, shortly after I retired.  He has really helped me, as evidenced by the fact that I have knocked 5 to 10 strokes off my game.  The biggest factor has been that Mike has given me the tools I need to analyze my errors and make the necessary correction.”

Ralph Kenning

“Mike is a special individual for the improvement of the entire game of golf from beginners to most advanced level players.  His warmth and positive personality shine through in everything he does.”

Ronald Szotak
Plainfield, NJ

“Mike Fay is the consummate golf instructor and an exemplary ambassador for the game.  We’re very proud that Mike has spent more than a decade building his teaching career here at Boyne Mountain and Boyne Highlands and continues to be the kind of leader the golf industry needs.”

Bernie Friedrich
Boyne Resorts

“My game has really improved since enrolling in MFG University. It has really helped me understand what I need to be a better golfer.”

Jim Backes
Saramento, CA

“I would highly recommend Mike Fay for coaching both juniors and adults. My children and I have taken multiple lessons with him and he has really helped all of us with not only improving our game, but developing an awareness for our golf swings. He relates easily to junior golfers and adults, making lessons in a relaxed and fun environment where you make genuine improvement. As a parent of junior golfers, I value Mike’s genuine interest and care for my kids, not only in their progress as golfers, but in the bigger picture of life.”
