Each Red Numbers Golf® client will have a unique program designed to meet their needs and to optimize their potential as prospective collegiate student-athletes. Clients will receive special case-by-case consideration in working with Coach Brooks throughout this process.
As a part of their commitment toward athletic improvement and personal growth, participants in the Red Numbers Golf® program must observe high standards of conduct. This means No Drugs and No Alcohol. Our clients should conduct themselves as ladies and gentlemen both on and off the golf course. Repeated violations of expected standards may result in dismissal from the program and in forfeiture of fees paid.
"If you want to know what it takes to play college golf and how to get there, John Brooks is your source for the straight story. Our experience with John exceeded our expectations and made a big difference in our son’s development as a player and a person."
