Barrington Golf Club’s Todd Casabella is the highest ranked Northeast Ohio golf instructor in the 2019 Golf Digest Best Teachers by State rankings, as listed in the magazine’s December issue.
The magazine states that the rankings are peer-created, based on a biennial survey of 1,500+ teaching professionals.
Other Northeast Ohio swing coaches who made the state rankings list include Jon Jones of Youngstown CC, Mike Emery and Gary Robison of Canton Brookside, Nick Paez of GolfTEC Cleveland West, Rob Moss of Pepper Pike, and Patrick Milkovich of Canterbury.
No instructor from Ohio made it onto the magazine’s 50 Best Teachers in America list — which may have a lot more to do with media exposure vs teaching acumen…
