Welcome to Elevated Golf! My name is Dan and I'm a Golf Coach. I help junior golfers and parents better understand collegiate golf. I have a unique story that has led me right to where I am in a position to make a positive impact on junior golfers. My goal is to help you better understand scheduling, recruitment, and what it takes to play golf at the next level.
My story began with me as a junior golfer with really no idea which tournaments to play in or how to get recruited. I had little knowledge, and in the early 2000's there wasn't a lot of information on how to get recruited.
I got lucky and was able to land a walk-on spot at a D1 university where I became a 3 year starter. College golf was the greatest time of my life!
After college, I spent a year as an intern with the AJGA (American Junior Golf Association). I worked in the Player Services department helping parents and junior players navigate the AJGA system.
I spent a couple years out of golf after that, but still taught some junior clinics in my spare time, and in 2012 I had the opportunity to become the Assistant Men's Golf Coach at my alma mater, The University of Iowa. I accepted and spent 5 years as the Assistant.
I then spent a year teaching golf as an Assistant Professional at Des Moines Golf and Country Club, and we hosted the 2017 Solheim Cup, which was a blast.
I now have a full-time job out of golf in Marketing, but spend my free time helping juniors through Elevated Golf.
My entire career has led me to be able to help junior golfers better understand and learn how to play college golf. My goal is to help provide guidance and be your golf coach.
My products provide step by step guidance and information on what it takes to play college golf. You can spend thousands of dollars on this information, but there is really no need unless you need some hand-holding. My solutions aren't hand-holding, they are meant to be self guided learning tools so you can better understand how to get recruited be ready for college golf. I'm always an email away with any questions - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elevated Golf was born in 2013 and originally sold limited flight golf balls. Great for use in parks or backyards as the balls flew about 50% of a real golf ball. Throughout the years I've sold some different products on Elevated Golf, but have now dedicated to helping junior players better understand how to play college golf.
