Offering golf instruction in the
eastern Pennsylvania, Kim Kleinle has 17 years' experience as a golf professional and
instructor. She was the first PGA Professional in Northeastern Pennsylvania to
successfully complete the PGA's Certified Professional Program in Instruction.
And, as of November 2011, she
was one of only nine Certified Instructors in Pennsylvania. Only 2 percent of the
entire PGA membership are Certified Professionals. Kim is also a member
of the LPGA. She's a teaching professional at Bethlehem Golf Club in Bethlehem,
PA, and is an instructor with the national LPGA Golf Clinics for Women. She
serves as head golf professional at Pinecrest Lake Golf Club, a
private club in Pocono Pines, PA. Kim gives back to the game of golf as volunteer director of the
Pocono Junior Golf Tour.
Kim uses a student-centered approach to teaching,
working with individual students and the golf swings that are unique to them.
She believes that a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching does not benefit the
student golfer, so each lesson is as unique as the individual.
