David Leadbetter joins Florida club as director of instruction

Members at Coral Creek Club will be able to get lessons for special rate

Coral Creek Club, a private club located in Placida, Fla., recently announced that it has signed an exclusive multi-year arrangement with David Leadbetter. He will oversee Coral Creek’s teaching program, train the professional staff in his methodology and be available to members for lessons and coaching at a special rate.

“We are truly fortunate to have David as our director of instruction,” stated Tom Noyes, Coral Creek Club’s general manager.  “His affiliation will enhance Coral Creek’s reputation, and this is a fantastic opportunity for our members.  In addition to helping our pros broaden their observation and coaching skills, the added exposure and credibility David brings will aid in continuing to spread the amazing story that is the Coral Creek Club.  Following the recent Tom Fazio renovation of the course, the club’s next chapters are just now being written.”

Leadbetter is a world class instructor who has coached professional golfers to 26 championship titles. In his 30-year-career Leadbetter has also helped seven PGA TOUR stars reach the No. 1 position on the Official World Golf Rankings list and counts his lessons to have resulted in over 150 individual worldwide tournament victories. In addition to working with elite players, Leadbetter is equally dedicated to helping the average golfer play better. 

Leadbetter already has visited Coral Creek a number of times and he’s helped consult on the finer points of the practice facilities. He believes that the newly renovated course is destined to become one of the most prestigious clubs in the state.  

“Coral Creek Club is a hidden gem that is about to be uncovered,” Leadbetter said.  “This Tom Fazio design is a course that can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels, and will provide a stern test for the very best players off the back tees.  Florida has been waiting for a course like this.  The club will be spoken about in the same breath as many other world-class venues that I have had the good fortune to visit during my career. It’s been my job to recognize and coach great golfing talent, and if I was to measure the potential of Coral Creek in a golfer’s terms, I would say that it has major winner written all over it.”
