Meet Our Coaches

MICHAEL BROOKS, PGA

ACADEMY DIRECTOR

Michael has had a passion for youth sports his entire life. Growing up playing many competitive youth sports taught him many valuable lessons and he was introduced to some great mentors along the way. At age 15 he fell in love with golf and quickly discovered the many valuable life skills it can teach.

 

In high school he played on the Charlotte Country Day High School golf team. Upon competing in the 3A state championship, Michael received the Most Improved Player award on his high-school team and later received offers to play at a few Division 3 Colleges. Carmel Country Club is where he spent most of his time developing his golf skills. In the summer of 2009 he participated in the Carmel Junior Club Championship and carded the winning score, 74-69.

Michael attended NC State and was a member of the PGA Golf Management Program.  He completed internships at Myers Park Country Club, Pebble Beach Golf Links, and Grandfather Golf and Country Club. Customer service was at the forefront of his learning during his time at these facilities. He also developed a thorough attention to detail and enhanced communication skills.
Throughout his senior year in the NC State Golf Management Program, Michael coached alongside Matt Reagan, CEO of Operation 36, at MacGregor Downs. It was here where he developed a passion for coaching which ultimately led to his current position as the Academy Director at MacGregor Downs upon graduating in 2015.  Michael is in charge of the entire Junior Academy at MacGregor including the Future 36ers program and the main Academy which covers ages 7-18.  He routinely helps players of all abilities and enjoys traveling to junior events across the state to watch his players compete.

Please know that if you enroll in the Academy we will not only help them develop into a better golfer but we will also build their character through reinforcing humility, gratitude and delayed gratification.  We believe if we can help develop a better person they will become a better golfer!

STUDENT SUCCESS

  • “The iGrow golf program at MacGregor Downs has created the opportunity for my son and I to enjoy the game of golf together and to spend a lot more quality time together.  It has been a very rewarding experience for both of us, and his improvement and interest in the game is remarkable.  The coaching and program is highly innovative, unique, and enjoyable for all skill levels involved.”

  • Our 13-year old son just completed his second full semester in iGrow and has had a terrific experience. Thanks to iGrow’s unique approach to instruction, coupled with well-managed sessions, cutting edge app technology and friendly, high-quality staff, we have seen our son's game progress rapidly in this, his first full year playing the game.  He has developed touch around the greens and is already hitting full mid-irons from 150 yards out!  The 9-hole matches have been particularly fun and effective for learning.  We now look forward to enrolling our daughter in iGrow in the coming year.
