Sandy NickersonTeaching Professional
As an LPGA Class A Teaching Professional with over 25 years of experience, Sandy has worked at top private golf clubs & resorts across the country from Hawaii, to Aspen, to Hilton Head.
Sandy grew up learning to play golf on Maui at the Wailea Golf Resort. Upon graduation, she received a full golf scholarship, played collegiately for the University of Hawaii & UCLA, then went on to spent a number of years playing professionally.
In addition to having earned over 300 hrs of instructional training with the LPGA, Sandy’s experience includes time spent with notable instructors such as Jim Hardy, Mike La Bauve, Amy Alcott, and Marlene Floyd. Working alongside some of the game’s best instructors has holistically shaped Sandy’s understanding of the game of golf, how students best learn, and what their motivations are.
Sandy’s teaching philosophy is not “one-size-fits-all”. Instead, she adapts her approach to her student’s individual swing, goals, and communication style. She makes it a goal to connect with her students not just as golfers, but as people who share a common bond of a love for the game of golf.
Sandy works with men, women, and juniors regardless of their ability or experience. She offers individual lessons and packages, 1 and 2-day Couples’ Camps, 3-day Women’s Golf Retreats, and various game development programs designed especially for women offered in a casual and fun group setting.
She looks forward to building community at Westin Rancho Mirage Golf Resort & Spa, and helping her students reaching new levels of performance and enjoyment with their game.
