Welcome to John Souza Golf.com and the NEW Golf & Fitness Academy @Ballston Spa Country Club!

New Seasonal Plans for Golf Lessons and BIG savings! Check out the details here! Limited slots available!

It was a great 2017 golf season and the winter personal training season has been fantastic! People are taking advantage of yoga and has been a success! Personal training has been busy and people are seeing results already! Fitting into the "too small" clothes due to the combination of better food choices and the workouts 2x per week! I'm so proud of these people and am honored to be a part of their journey!

Golf lessons have also gone well, although it has been pretty cold lately. We are looking to add an infrared heater over the door the help with this. All in all, it has been great and I'm SO happy to be here!

If you'd like to get in better shape for the upcoming season or get the swing looked at, contact me and we will find some time!

As a PGA Professional, I want to grow the game of golf and help you have more fun by improving your weaknesses.

As a TPI Certified Golf Professional, I will identify any muscle imbalances directly related to your golf swing. These imbalances can prevent your improvment, and can lead to injury.

(Interesting right? Watch this!)

As a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, I can go the extra mile to ensure that we correct muscle imbalances effectively, make golf swing improvement possible, and keep you injury free to be able to play better, longer.

Efficient Body  Proficient Golf

I am proud to announce the new Golf & Fitness Academy located at Ballston Spa Country Club! We have a 500 square foot building going up behind the driving range that will house a hitting bay and a golf specific fitness center! We can work on every area of your golf game, as well as making sure your body is working efficiently to produce your most proficient golf swing and on-course results.

We will use video analysis and launch monitor technology to help identify, correct, and understand what happens when you swing the club and how to make the appropriate adjustments.

I am excited to get started and look forward to seeing you!



As a PGA Professional, I can help you with every aspect of your golf game. However, a player cannot make a change if their body is not capable of the new move.


As TPI Certified Professional, I can identify your physical limitations & muscle imbalances as they relate directly to your golf swing.


As an NASM Certfied Personal Trainer, I can correct your limitations & imbalances and make improvement much more efficient.
