Chicago School of Golf’s Core Values


We're a family-owned and operated company, focused on our family of exceptional employees and students. This “people first” approach has always led to our success .With this foundational and limitless opportunities, everyone has every chance to flourish. This is why we have students come back for over a decade time and time again.

It all starts with Integrity.

Integrity beyond all else. Do the right thing when no one is looking. In golf and life we must do this. It's easy to re-do a miss hit or ignore a penalty, but golf is a game of respect and integrity. We use golf as a way to teach about life.

Collaboration through enjoyment

When you are part of the CSOG family, we work together as a team to make everyone's experience the best. Our learning environment is competitive, challenging, and rewarding. We are always developing and fine-tuning training protocols that push us to the next level. “Today's innovation, tomorrow’s success…”

Exhibits positive energy

As a company we use positivity to motivate people to be the best versions of themselves. We are always working to create a positive fun environment with no limitations on what can be done. All of us have “can do and will do” attitudes. It’s easy to find the negative in things; what others would call negatives we call opportunities. We encourage our students to do the same.

Inspiring people to dream

Dreaming is important, nothing great comes from thinking small. We inspire all staff and students to set large goals for themselves. Being there for someone as they achieve goals and accomplish tasks they originally believed they could not do is what motivates us to dig deeper. Dreaming also establishes the creativity that is needed to see and direct your ball around the course.

Chicago school of golf’s story

Chicago School of Golf was founded in 2014 by David Maslen, a lifelong golf enthusiast with a passion for the game. David had always been fascinated by the sport. He noticed that many golfers were not receiving the right guidance and were struggling to improve. That's when he decided to create Chicago School of Golf.

David's vision was to provide high-level customer service and a developmental plan for all golfers regardless of age. He wanted to create a place where golfers of all skill levels could come and receive tailored instruction that would help them reach their full potential. He started the school with just him as the only coach. Soon after he had a small team of instructors who shared his passion for teaching and helping others. The school began to grow quickly, as more and more golfers in the Chicagoland area heard about the high-quality instruction and individualized plans offered at Chicago School of Golf. David and his team started to provide instruction at various golf courses throughout the Chicagoland area, making it easy for golfers to access the school's services no matter where they were located.

David's dedication and hard work paid off, and soon Chicago School of Golf became one of the most respected and well-known golf instruction facilities in the Chicagoland area. Today, the school has three indoor facilities and six golf courses that they teach out of. Chicago School of Golf continues to provide instruction to golfers of all ages and skill levels, and is proud to have helped countless golfers improve their game and reach their full potential.
