Ryan Davis, Lead Golf Instructor
Davis a member of the PGA of America since 2005 and former Head Golf Professional is in charge of Sunriver Resort's golf instructional program for members, resort guests, and the general public. No matter your age or playing ability, Ryan brings the game of golf to life at Sunriver Resort!
Ryan grew up in Southern California and started playing golf at age seven and played competitively junior and collegiate golf. Ryan attended Portland State University, where he earned a degree in Sociology and quickly realized the game of golf was not a passion but a career path.
Ryan has been in the golf industry since 1998 where he began his career at Columbia Edgewater Country Club near Portland and then moved to work at the prestigious Mesa Verde Country Club in Costa Mesa, California.
Ryan's Teaching Philosophy: I believe that "connection" is sports master fundamental. My studies have taught me that good fundamentals such as grip, stance and posture can only be utilized by a proper focus of energy, or "connection." This energy starts from the ground up and releases though the ball. Like the great teacher Jimmy Ballard, I believe that golf and all sports have similar common fundamentals which create effortless power. During my group and individual lessons, I will often refer to the teachings of Byron Nelson, Ben Hogan, Tom Watson, and many other great teachers and players.
