Testimonials

I have a great deal of respect for Philip Walker and the Back Nine Golf Academy. Phil is very passionate about his work and he is able to explain complex aspects of the game in a way that is easy to understand. Thanks to Phil I’ve been able to drop my average score from 120 to 95 after just 10 lessons.

I had very little golfing experience before I went to Phil. Since taking lessons from him I actually play golf properly. I always have a great time and learn so much after each lesson and practice. Without Phil I would not be able to play golf this well. If you are thinking about playing golf, you have to take lessons from Phil.

After taking several lessons at the Back Nine Golf Academy I am hitting the ball 40 yards longer through the bag. My direction is very straight. I wish I had discovered the Back Nine 30 years ago.

Just want to say thank you. You may not remember, but you gave me a putting lesson last Wednesday. I made 5 birdies and shot 1 under on the back at Pinnacle. I haven’t made 5 birdies in my last 5 rounds. I made 4 putts outside of 20 feet. You are seriously a miracle worker. Thank you for what you do. Golf means so much to me. You have made it much more enjoyable. See you at the next session.

As a customer of Phil’s for two years, there has never been a day of golf where I did not enjoy myself with him. Phil is very personable and brings a lot of energy into his lessons. You can tell that he truly loves his job. He has the most resourceful teaching methods in all of Arkansas, if there is anything wrong with your swing he can fix it. I highly recommend the Back Nine Golf Academy if you are looking to improve your game in any way.

I came to the Back Nine Golf Academy last year as a really small kid hitting a pitching wedge about 100 yards. Philip has helped me become a lot longer and consistently more accurate. He knows my potential and helps me maximize it. He is pretty hard on me, but it helps a lot. Last year I shot 96 in my district tournament and this year I shot 86. I also had my first even par round. The Back Nine has been essential to my golf game improvement.
