Apr 23, 2022 - Gentlemen, I shot my lowest score ever today. 81. 13 out of 14 fairways. Thanks to all 3 of you, and to Mr. Hogan of course.
Apr 16, 2022 - Got irons today so I have all the clubs. Shot 72 today on the Wanamaker Course. Best score ever. Just love the clubs.

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated taking golf lessons form you at the Cestone Golf Academy. Your method of instruction and sincere interest in improving my game has made a tremendous impact in my game. I definitely hit the ball farther and straighter, and as a result, can now reach the greens in regulation on a number of holes at my club. I know that as I continue to practice and commit my swing to muscle memory, I will get even better. At the age of 66 years old, I would never have thought that I could have significantly improved my game to this extent. But thanks to you, I have. All of my golf buddies have also noticed the improvement in my game. For those who have asked, I have referred them to you. I now have a goal to shoot in the 70's where I used to shoot in the low 90's!
Continue your good work!
Best wishes to you and your family in the New Year,

"Just wanted to reach out and let you know I shot a personal best 85 at fox Hollow yesterday! Finally got everything working. Really changed the grip after reading Ben Hogan's book and it's really working. Looking forward to working on some more technical stuff with you soon!

"Winner at Myrtle Beach Caledonia Golf and Fish Club. This makes 6 wins since I have been working with you and the boys. Thanks"

"At the MSE Intensive, Cestone Golf had ne go through the motion of kicking a soccer ball(I'm a goalie trainer). Then they showed me the similarities (head position, weight, power increase tempo, follow through) helped me so much. Striking the ball better than ever because of it."

"Could not have done it without you and the boys. Shot 78 and won in a playoff."

"Cestone Golf Academy is the Real Thing. Mr. Cestone and sons, Frank and Michael, can teach the Classic Swing with an expertise and easy to understand approach that is second to none. They have a real ability to articulate the technical part of the swing in easy to follow and understand philosophy. CGA is one of Florida's hidden gems. If you want to learn and improve CGA is the place to go."

"On Friday I shot an 87 at Plantation Palms 5,600 yds. Everything I have learned from our lessons is coming together.
Upright stance; less sway; more hip rotation; left shoulder stays connected to upper body; out of sand in one shot; forward lean shaft when putting; swing with slope downhill lie; etc.
Golf sure is more fun when I’m shooting lower scores/better swings 😊
Thanks for your help,"

"Loved the lessons! Learned much with ability to work my knowledge into game! Michael and Frank are great! The three of you make a great team! You can have anyone that needs a reference to call me!"
Thanks Michael for the fix you taught me at our last lesson. I've played four rounds since then and have not had one severe open-face shot. None, zip, nada. Golf is fun again! Thanks again for the fix.
Just got back from Pinehurst... I’m sure Tom told you about his big win!!😁😁😁
Soooo proud of him and all his hard work.
You and you’re boys have certainly helped him become the golfer he is!!!!
"I recently took a lesson with Michael Cestone. A fantastic 1st lesson that provided an excellent explanation of his teaching style. He used video and Trackman before and after to demonstrate the changes he is implementing. I was so impressed and excited to continue under his teaching. Highly recommended."
"Thanks for the Screencast. It is extremely helpful. I have watched it a couple of times to reinforce what I need to work on to improve my swing. What a great teaching tool. The visual aspect combined with your voice over really hits home with me. Using what you taught me, I am hitting the ball better."
"I just wanted to tell you that our last lesson was my favorite one yet. You taught me more about chipping in 20 minutes than anyone has been able to teach me in the last 30 years of attempting to play golf. I’m looking forward to the next lesson."
"I had been struggling for 3 months and had already spent 2 months with 2 different golf instructors and had not achieved any results when I started with Mike and his 2 sons. From the very first minutes working with the three of them I could tell that this was going to be much different then what I had previously encountered. We started working on things with my swing that had not been previously mentioned. I have received top-quality instruction in golf fundamentals and I can say from spending 2 months trying to improve my game their instruction is unmatched. I can't say enough about the 3 of them as I have received instruction from each of them and they have been outstanding."

Thanks for a great tournament today. James showed his medal to all his neighborhood friends. He said he wants another shot at competing. Your folks are excellent & did a great tourney.

"I had never played golf before, and wanted to be able to play in charity tournaments with my friends. I called Michael, got started, and a month later was on the course! Highly recommend!!"
"You have sacrificed and dedicated your time and services to my golf game. With that being said, I would like to express my sincere gratitude an making this golf season memorable and successful."
"Mike and the team have been with me since I began making an effort to improve my golf game. He does a great job of working with his students on the swing that feels most natural to them. He doesn't break you down and work from scratch, he builds on the foundation that you already have. Sophisticated use of Trackman is a big plus of working with CGA."
"I thank you, Frank, and Michael for helping me grow in my golf game, and I can credit you to helping me perfect my game to where it is now. I just thank you and your sons for not only being great coaches, but being great mentors, friends, and role models as well. I wish you well for all of your journeys to come."
"This group really understands the science of golf and how to translate into a useable golf swing."
Lenn Fraraccio to Michael Cestone
Nic made the High school golf team !!! You and your boys are a big reason why. Thx you !!!
Ross Watercutter to Michael Cestone
"Just wanted to let you know I'm getting much better results. Next time I see you I'm going to give you a huge handshake. I have never hit a golf ball better in my 15 years of playing golf than I did today on the driving range. From here on out the skies the limit. I finally got the concept down and hit 85% of my balls really good."
Nick Tsavaris to Michael Cestone
"Yianni took his golf lesson to the course today. Today's lesson was the best so far. Thank you. You're a great teacher."

"When I find a great business I have to let people know! Isaiah hangs out at Cestone Golf Academy when we can. Michael Cestone and his boys are running a great program out at Westchase Golf Club. I notice the improvement in his game already. Better than me noticing is Isaiah notices."

"Hey Coach. Just wanted to say thanks for spending time with Ben this whole week at Rogers. And thanks for offering the Trackman! His confidence is growing immensely, and his skills have improved tremendously over this last week! I watched him for about 45 minutes today practicing on the range when I came to pick him up, and the difference is truly astounding! You and Coach Melvin have really done a lot for him, and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate it! He is SUPER excited for the tournament this weekend, which is something we usually don't see from him. So, thanks again!"
