What people are saying

At a young age I was enrolled in the Barrie Bruce Golf Schools Junior program. Besides my father, Barrie has been the most influential person in my golf career. His philosophy about practice, enjoying and respecting the game is what I've always remembered.
In the Junior program, and in subsequent lessons, he taught me proper fundamentals, etiquette, and the rules of golf. I went on to become a PGA Tour Professional, competing in over 200 Tour events. Thank you to Barrie and the BBGS Golf Schools. I do not think I would have been as successful in my golf career without your passion for the game and your help through the years.
