Rick Sargent

Rick has been teaching golf for over 20 years. He has taught all ages and levels of players ranging from young beginners to those who have gone on to play for their high school and college teams. He can teach anyone to enjoy the game whether it’s to play socially, for business purposes or to be the champion of their own club.

Rick educates his students on why certain ball flights and shot patterns occur. He teaches his students specific drills that can be practiced in order to improve consistency and lower scoring. Rick may set up bi-weekly ½ hour or 1 hour long practice sessions so that he is able to effectively monitor his students’ progress. Don’t let a rainy day get in your way because Rick can bring you inside and focus on strategy that can elevate your game to a different level.

Rick is very active in The Illinois Section PGA tournament program. He plays in numerous events throughout the year and is extremely popular with his peers. Prior to joining Lake Bluff Golf Club Rick was on staff at Highland Park Country Club, Bryn Mawr Country Club, Skokie Country Club, Pipers Landing Country Club and Ballantrae Yacht and Country Club. Rick resides in Glenview with his lovely wife and beautiful daughter.
