About me:  

     A native of Rochester, Indiana, I graduated from Anderson University.  While at Anderson, I was a 4-year letter winner and 2-time MVP on the golf team.  I began my professional career immediately after college, and I'm a member of the PGA of America.  I've worked at courses as the PGA Head Golf Professional that include Prairie View Golf Club (IN), The Fort Golf Resort (IN), Coffin Golf Club (IN), and currently here at Stone Creek Golf Club(IA).  Other courses I've worked throughout my career include Pawley's Plantation Golf & CC (SC), Heritage Club (SC), Tippecanoe Lake CC (IN), and Formby Hall Golf Club (England).  I have extensive experience as a Golf Instructor, Coach, Club Fitter, and Club Repair.  I'm well versed with Trackman & V1 teaching software.  As an active player at the section and national level, I've played the professional mini tours and continue to compete in Iowa PGA Section events.  I am excited about the opportunity to improve your golf game and sharing my knowledge of the game I love so much.


Teaching Philosopy:

     I believe in an individual approach to teaching golf, every student has a swing that's individualized.  I consider it my job to find what is the most efficient for the student, what works best for them.  I teach solely on the basics of ball flight theory, the physics of the golf swing, and how I can combine the two to work together to form a fundamental golf swing.  Furthermore, I incorporate my knowledge and teaching into a learning environment for the student to understand why the golf ball does what it does.

“I had the pleasure to work with Donnie Rogers for the first time this summer.  His quick understanding of my golf swing and what needed adjusting was impressive.  Better yet, was his ability to communicate to me so that I understood how to implement these changes.  Thanks Donnie.  Look forward to working with you more in the future.”  Ed Ledford

“2013 Hamilton County Senior Amateur –Runner Up-“


“Donnie helped me with my 50 yard and under shot.  I had struggled with my sand wedge over shooting the green or coming up short.  He broke my swing down like a clock and showed me how with each “time” I can get the distance needed.  With a quick visual fix I am now attacking this yardage with full confidence.”  Lisa Hammons

(Wife of Brian Hammons of the Golf Channel)


“As a beginner golfer, Donnie’s lesson and swing tips allowed me to take my game to a very respectable level in a short amount of time.  Applying his methods transformed my game on the golf course.”  Diana Binetti


“Donnie’s short game instruction took strokes off my game immediately.  His insight and how he communicates allowed me to take his instruction to the course and see immediate results.”  Joe Cavarretta



“Donnie, your August Special $20 for 20 minute lesson on my short game has done wonders for my game!  For years, the short game had always destroyed my game.  People always told me that if I had a short game I would be a solid 3-4 handicap instead of the usual 8-9 I have carried for years.  In the last week, I have had 2 rounds under par-69 & 71!  Much of this was due to short game improvements as a result of your 20 minute lesson.  I now have no fear when I miss a green and actually look forward to it now.  The biggest difference has been applying your technique to the 30-60 yard shots.  These have resulted in low ball flight that check-up.  I really appreciate you’re quick lesson…the best $20 I ever spent!  The chunks & skulls are a thing of the past.  I look forward to spending more time with you on other parts of my game.”  Joe Stevens
