“Mike Fay is the consummate golf professional, he is engaging and works hard to not only instruct a player, but to understand the player and their particular needs.  He is approachable and willing to work with anyone, he’s got a lot of patience to go along with his skill set.  We had the good fortune to have Mike as our lead Assistant Pro and Instructor at Fairmount Country Club in Chatham, NJ for 4 years.  During that time Mike grew the Junior program, he got my son hooked on the game.  We miss him at FCC and envy the golfers who get to work with Mike improving their performance and deepening their love of the game.”

Mike Fay is an excellent, highly  knowledgeable and well-experienced  golf instructor I highly recommend.  As a former pro athlete I’ve enjoyed success in several sports. However, despite playing golf on and off for over 50 years, and even winning some lower level tournaments, good consistent golf remained a mystery to me. Mike has demystified shot making by educating me so that  I know and can feel how to execute correct  shots.  His insightful teaching assisted by the latest electronic and visual shot analysis has helped me significantly improve accuracy and distance.   With Mike’s instruction, I have especially enjoyed being able to pitch and chip utilizing more spin for control to stay close to the pin.  I wish I had Mike’s instruction years ago.
