Casey Hall is a LPGA Class A Member and has been teaching and coaching golf in the Bay Area for 15 years. Since joining the Stanford professional staff in 2011, Casey has been involved in a number of programs that emphasize getting more women and juniors engaged in the game of golf. In 2017, she created, launched and became the official Site Director for the first ever LPGA*USGA Girls Golf program at Stanford.
With the resources and support of LPGA*USGA Girls Golf and Everbank, Casey’s Girls Golf Program kick-off event was attended by more than 80 girls between the ages of 6 to 17. Since the kick-off, the LPGA*USGA Girls Golf Program at Stanford has introduced the game to girls of all ages through innovative and interactive on-course and range sessions. The goal of this program is to empower girls both on and off the course, while cultivating a genuine love of the game.
Before coming to Stanford, Casey was the golf operations manager and teaching professional at Coyote Creek Golf Club. She played a key role in the creation and organization of a year-round junior golf program and was a lead instructor in the Junior Golf Academy.
Prior to that, Casey worked at Saratoga Country Club where she designed and managed a long-term junior development program which included regular practice sessions and classroom training. The program focused on creating a fun and engaging environment and significantly improved junior participation. As a compliment to her developmental program, Casey partnered with Hammer Golf Performance and Fitness to create an innovative 8-week program combining fitness, dynamic balance and video analysis with golf instruction. She also founded and built the Saratoga High School girls’ golf program that, over the course of her 4 years as Head Coach, grew to 18 participants and continues to thrive to this day.
As an LPGA teaching professional, I believe that the key ingredient to every lesson is engagement. By asking questions, actively listening and being completely present, we learn what that student wants to achieve during the lesson and how that transfers to their overall experience with the game.
I believe you must be endlessly patient and creative in your teaching, finding many different ways to convey your message in order for that student to truly learn the skill. By taking those things, along with the knowledge of fundamental core movement and an emphasis on playful learning, you can tailor the lesson to each individual player and create lasting, effective change.
