We are pleased to announce that Matt DeJohn and the Matt DeJohn Golf Academy will be joining us at St. Lucie Trail Golf Club.  After a successful Division I college golf career at Central Connecticut State University, Matt relocated to south Florida from upstate New York to pursue a professional career playing and teaching golf.  Not long after he arrived, his instruction business grew to a point where he did not have time to pursue a playing career and he began teaching full time.  Matt has established himself as a top junior golf instructor.  His teaching and clinics have taken him around the world including Scotland, South America, and throughout the U.S.  He recently coached at the 2017 U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin, the 2018 USGA Boy’s Junior Amateur at Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey and at numerous other prestigious national and international tournaments.

Since 2014, Matt has had 17 students move on to play NCAA Division I college golf along with two area high school students who recently made early commitments to play for the Florida Gators and the Duke Blue Devils. Matt is very well known by the college coaches around the US and has great relationships with coaches at many of the top programs.

Some recent accomplishments Matt’s students have achieved:
  • 2015 &2016 Boys Florida State Jr. Amateur Champion
  • 2015 Boys’ Florida State Junior Amateur Qualifier
  • 2016 Florida State Golf Association Junior Player of the Year
  • 2018 US Kids Age 9 World Champion @ Pinehurst
  • 2018 US Kids Age 12 European Champion in Scotland

  • 2017 two teams of junior boys qualified for the USGA Men’s Amateur Four Ball Championship
  • 2018 one team of junior boys qualified for the USGA Men’s Amateur Four Ball Championship

Matt’s teaching philosophy focuses on measurable differences between skill levels and laying out a systematic progression that is individualized for each student to help them play their best golf.  His teaching tools include the latest instruction technologies including high speed video, Flightscope radar, Blast Motion sensor, and many other training aids to help the student get the most out of their lesson. He will be offering private lessons, group clinics, junior camps, and a full-time elite junior coaching program.
