Nathaniel Colo  

Nathaniel Colo - PGA Associate - Teaching Professional & Club Fitter

A Western Washington native, Professional Golf Management Graduate, and PGA Associate, Nathaniel has been dedicated to providing a safe and empowering environment for all ages, genders, orientations, and abilities to explore, discover, practice and play golf with freedom for over twelve years. Nathaniel utilizes current technology such as Toptracer, Trackman, and Sportsbox Ai to efficiently get to the root of a golfer's issues and address them with proper feedback.

Nathaniel believes that the golf swing is an athletic motion that all body types are capable of making once you understand the 'why' and 'how'. And when that's learned, it's easier to control the club, and thus the ball, and that's how you 'own' your golf game, however you want to play it.

If you want to be a more consistent golfer, hit it farther, and lower your scores, Nathaniel will help eliminate the guesswork in improving your game. Whether it be swing mechanics, how to practice, course management, or club- and ball-fitting, you'll start to better understand what will get you to exceed your personal golf goals.
