As a golf instructor, Cheryl meets some very interesting and notable people of all abilities.  Some have been special needs students, supreme court judges, generals, NFL Football Players, college players, college basketball coaches, authors and visitors from countries all over the world.

Cheryl Brankel's love for teaching the game of golf, makes taking a lesson not only productive, but fun as well.  One of Cheryl's goals is to help each student individually.  She knows that one golf swing doesn’t fit all, we are not all built alike.  Her relaxed style and keen eye sets her students at ease so they can easily understand and focus on THEIR goals during a lesson.
