In 2013-2014 I was placed in contact with Coach Wydra by another coach in our conference who had a pre-existing relationship with him. I was told that “nobody knows golf, or golf in Southern California better than Mike Wydra.”
As a new college golf coach I felt that a spring break trip was critically important to the growth and development of our program. My goal on this trip was to take our team to a place where we could fit in the greatest amount of golf and teaching while providing our players with a memorable experience. After making contact with Coach Wydra, and with his help in planning the trip, I was confident that our trip would meet those expectations.
After returning back to the East coast I can tell you that with the help of Coach Wydra, those expectations were not only met, they far exceeded what I had hoped for. Coach Wydra helped in every way imaginable from helping to set up rounds at outstanding golf courses, providing lessons to my team both individually and collectively, and even playing 18 hole rounds with members of my team. I can honestly say that in the short period of time that Coach Wydra spent with my team that that each member of the team improved and I even became a better coach. He has an incredible knowledge and understanding of the game of golf along with a gentlemanly demeanor and ability to teach it.
I would highly recommend contacting him if you plan on taking a spring break trip to Southern California or are in need of expert assistance in any endeavor related to golf, golf instruction, and knowledge of golf in Southern California. My team will be returning to Southern California this year and Coach Wydra is one of the primary reasons why!
