Robert Dickman Golf

Strive For Excellence High School Program 


Robert Dickman Golf Strive for Excellence Program was formed to produce high athletic performance and has been a national  hot bed for achievement for over 35 years. Students have won over 45 events on tour as well as the Illinois State Junior Amateur, Illinois US Kids Championship, Illinois Mid Amateur Championship, and countless  championships across Illinois and beyond. Countless of his junior students have gone on to compete in colleges including; Colorado, Marquette, Kentucky, Bucknell, Northern Illinois, Illinois, Wesleyan, Carthage, Stetson, Wheaton, Central Iowa, Alabama, Taylor, William & Mary, and Lipscomb.

In 2018 student Alec Dutkowski won the Northern Amateur and was a finalist for the coveted collegiate Jack Nicklaus award. .CJ Swift recently finished 3rd at the first stage of the PGA Tour Qualifying School. As the 2016 Illinois PGA Teacher of the Year and Golf Digest Rated Best Teachers in State for 2017 & 2018,  Bob has built a comprehensive and unique program that has yielded proven results. This program has allowed players to develop a skill and love for the game of a lifetime and for those interested, an ability to compete at an elite level.

Although this program has developed countless college players, it is not a mass produced cookie cutter format. Bob takes each player where they are in development and extracts every bit of talent from this individual while teaching strong values and life skills. Bob treats each player as an individual. The personal sessions emphasize skill development while the group sessions emphasize skill transfer to the golf course.

Summer season will build on fundamental game improvements with heavy emphasis on transferring skills to the golf course. At least one lesson each session will be held in  in a small group.

Individual Sessions by appointment at Willow Hill Golf Course or Pine Meadow Golf Club. Group sessions to be held at Willow Hill Golf Course.

The attached program is designed specifically for those wishing to play in High School and beyond.  In order to sign up call or email Bob ASAP!
