Welcome to the Jeff Coston Golf Academy: Home of excellence. To play the golf of your dreams you must learn from an excellent coach. An excellent coach first has excellent information and experience. Secondly, they have passion, conviction and wonderful communication skills. This coach/teacher needs to express his information in a simple practical manner. Finally, it should be fun! Jeff has not only taught the game of golf but he has played it for a living. Jeff Coston has seen the best of both worlds and understands how to help you. Jeff will not only improve your swing mechanics, but help you shoot lower scores.
Jeff can answer such questions as:
- How do I go from a 15 handicap to a 9?
- How do I practice properly to make the most of my limited time?
- What is a mental and physical routine?
- What is an on-plane athletic golf swing?
- How can I play better on the course and in tournaments?
Things we do at the Jeff Coston Golf Academy:
- Understand and simplify your swing technique and scoring approach
- Practical drills and techniques to improve your mechanics
- Hit golf shots not just make golf swings, especially on the course
- Make a dynamic plan and strategy to get better and reach your goals
- Focus on the total golf game, not only one area

Q: Is it true you decided you wanted to dedicate your life to golf when you saw Jack Nicklaus tee off at Inglewood Golf Club in Kenmore in the Greater Seattle Open in 1965 when you were 10 years old?
A: Yes, that was a real springboard for me. I had become interested in golf because kids in my neighborhood played a lot of sports and started playing golf. Twenty years later, I played with Nicklaus in the final round of the Honda Classic. It was my third professional tournament. I shot 71 and he shot 73
Q: Was 14-year-old Phil Mickelson really the standard bearer for your threesome at the 1985 Buick Invitational when you played a round with Steve Pate and Chris Perry?
A: He was. He still remembers me, and every time we see each other he calls me “Mr. Coston.”
Q: You have operated the Jeff Coston Golf Academy in Blaine near the Canadian border for more than 20 years. What is the farthest someone has come for once-a-week lessons from you?
A: About 50 percent of the people I worked with came from Seattle or farther. One pro playing in Spain used to come home and see me four times a year. I’ve had pros from the Portland area drive up for a series of lessons.
