David Hanson is the director of Instruction at the Golf Garden of Destin. Originally from outside Washington, D.C., David began playing golf at the age of five. After graduating from the Professional Golf Management (PGM) Program at New Mexico State University, he decided to make a career as a touring professional. In 2000, he achieved Class A Certification from the Professional Golfer’s Association (PGA) of America.

During the last 6 years David competed on several professional tours including the Gateway, NGA Hooters, Nationwide, and Moonlight where he achieved numerous top finishes. Throughout his career, David has worked with top instructors such as David Leadbetter, Butch Harmon, Mike Bender, Rick Smith and Carl Rabito.

After several successful years on the mini-tours David realized he enjoyed assisting his fellow professionals with their games as much as he did refining his own. Teaching, he discovered, gave him the perfect blend of values he was taught as a youngster: A passion for the game, and a desire to help others, especially those beginning to learn the game of golf.
