Manor Golf Academy is pleased to have an excellent team of instructors to help you with your game-Sharon Barley and Matt Reed:

Matthew Reed

Matt is an avid golfer, looking to spread the love of the game. His passion for the game was quickly ignited after starting to play competitively for Pottsville Area High School. His competitive play continued to the Lebanon Valley College golf team, where he took on the role of Captain. Matt enjoyed
helping his fellow teammates and this position led him to continue helping others improve their game. 

Matt is certified as a Class A Master Teaching Professional  through the Professional Golf Teacher’s Association of America (PGTAA) and is currently working on becoming a certified youth coach through U.S. Kids Golf.  Matt has been providing instruction at Swing Evolutions in Exeter, PA and is now joining the instruction team at The Manor Golf Club for private lessons and a variety of clinics. 

He is now ready to help other players improve their game – making their time on the course even more enjoyable. The foundation of a great golf game lies in understanding YOUR swing. This does not require a one-swing-fits-all approach. Whether you are looking for a full swing change or simply wanting to focus on a specific area of
your golf, Matt will help you bring out your best game.  This will lead to the confidence in your swing to play any course. Feel free to
reach out to Matt today.

Customer Testimonial:
"Matt has been great over the winter working with my 9 year old son. My son was pretty new to golf before the first lesson and thanks to Matt, his swing looks remarkably smoother in just 2-3 months. Matt has a really good understanding of swing mechanics and how to teach younger players the fundamentals of golf. Would recommend him to anyone looking for lessons".
