Mark Hackett, Director of Instruction at Old Palm Golf Club, just added one more accolade to his long list of professional distinctions. He was recently voted one of Florida’s best golf teachers by a distinguished panel of 1,200 of America’s leading golf instructors. Being recognized by his peers is particularly rewarding for Hackett because the panel fully understands what it takes to be a phenomenal teacher. The results of the vote are listed in the November 2013 issue of “Golf Digest,” which is now available on line and in print. Members of Old Palm that have taken lessons from Hackett know firsthand how helpful his instruction can be. Hackett has a knack for explaining even the complexities of the swing in easy-to-grasp terms and then showing members how they can quickly adjust their games for maximum results. Several of Hackett’s instructional videos are on Old Palm’s website, including ones that address common situations like slicing the ball, blasting out of a fairway bunker, and playing from a water hazard. Congratulations to Hackett for his selection as one of Florida’s best golf teachers—a recognition that our members agreed with completely.
