    I enrolled my 7 year old daughter in Seiko's girls golf program and it's been completely worth it and a great experience. I find Seiko's instruction to be focused on instilling solid fundamentals and
    learning all aspects of the game in a comfortable yet learning filled environment. Seiko is really warm and her approach is very calm and builds a lot of confidence for my little girl. It makes her
    want to come back and learn more, which in itself protects my investment :)
    I would recommend Seiko to anyone!

  • Jeri McGonnell (Tuesday, March 18 14 12:38 pm EDT)

    I participated in Seiko's group lessons and found her encouragement and instruction very helpful for me to improve my skills.

  • John and Katie Sahid (Saturday, March 15 14 02:13 am EDT)

    We LOVE Coach Seiko! She is so patient and encouraging with our kids and always has a smile on her face. Our oldest is 9 and has taken lessons on and off with her for about 4 years. She always enjoys
    her time with Coach Seiko whether it's during a private lesson or a golf camp.

  • Becky Fuentes (Wednesday, March 12 14 06:28 pm EDT)

    We can't believe it's been nearly 3 years of golf instruction with coach Seiko! At the age of 6, and diagnosed with ADHD, we began lessons for our daughter. We couldn't believe the passion that
    ignited within our daughter and the ability and concentration that followed with Coach Seiko's professional, patient, fun and easy to learn instruction. Our daughter loves attending all of her
    individual and group lessons, play dates, course play and camps offered throughout the year. Coach Seiko has been the perfect fit for junior golf instruction and our daughter is steadily improving.
    She even has a win under her belt! Thank you Coach Seiko!

  • Amy Haines (Wednesday, March 12 14 12:22 pm EDT)

    Seiko is a wonderful golf instructor! Our 9 y/o daughter has been taking lessons from Seiko for well over a year now. Her golf skills have really improved thanks to Seiko. The summer golf camp is
    also a lot of fun and our daughter really looks forward to it!

  • Lona Lee (Tuesday, November 05 13 03:14 pm EST)

    I had my first ever golf lessons with Seiko last year. She was super patient and always fun to work with. I've never swung a golf club before and really just wanted to learn some basics of the game.
    She provided me with the right amount of materials and drills to do at home to improve my posture. I wish I was still around southern California to be able to take lessons... Miss you Seiko!

  • Chris Lorenz (Monday, March 25 13 08:40 pm EDT)

    Seiko is an outstanding golf instuctor for kids. Our daughter, Chloe (11), has taken lessons with Seiko the past several months, and we've really seen her skills develop well. Seiko includes just the
    right balance of instruction and fun in her lesson plan to keep our daughter motivated to play and improve.

  • Glenn Craft (Wednesday, February 27 13 08:26 pm EST)

    Seiko has been coaching my son Ethan (6 now) for the past two years, both in group and now one-on-one, and I can't praise her enough! She has built a real trust relationship with him and is patient
    with him. He listens well to her and always improves after a lesson with her. We love her!! She's not only good at what she does but a joy to work with.

  • Louise Gallagher (Saturday, September 01 12 12:26 pm EDT)

    Great web site, Seiko! Will be contacting you next week for more of your great lessons!

  • Ron & Anita Pedzinski (Tuesday, July 31 12 04:35 pm EDT)

    Seiko, hey nice job on website, looks great! Best of luck. Ron & Anita

  • Tiffany Nguyen (Sunday, July 01 12 10:00 pm EDT)

    Congratulations Seiko on the launch of your website. It looks fabulous!

  • Eddie S. (Wednesday, June 27 12 05:09 pm EDT)

    Congraturations on opening your new website. It looks really good.

  • Danny Liu (Wednesday, June 27 12 01:12 am EDT)

    I had the chance to take golf lessons from Seiko Onoue.

    Ever since, my golf game has improved & I have more confidence when I'm taking a swing on the course with my irons or driver.

    The only regret I have is I wish I had taken lessons from Seiko sooner! Thank you for everything!
