Gil Davis Golf Receives 2022 Best of Chicago Award

Chicago Award Program Honors the Achievement

CHICAGO April 29, 2022 -- Gil Davis Golf has been selected for the 2022 Best of Chicago Award in the Golf Instruction category by the Chicago Award Program.

Each year, the Chicago Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Chicago area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2022 Chicago Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Chicago Award Program and data provided by third parties.

The Chicago Award Program was established to recognize the best of local businesses in our community. Our organization works exclusively with local business owners, trade groups, professional associations and other business advertising and marketing groups.

I am happy to announce that I have been ranked as one of the Top

 African American Golf Instructors in the country!

I would like to thank all my students for making me improve myself everyday

      It is time to learn golf using the easy, effective, proven swing philosophy of Gil Davis.  While individual intensity may differ, the path of the program is the same.  We will build, improve or refine your golf game, starting with the short game and working through the bag to full swings. 

     My current and past clients include Illinois golf hall of fame members, club professionals, college scholarship players, professional athletes, and people from many other walks of life.  My goal is to help you to see your complete game, so you understand what to work on and why.  Then you will have the ability to refine and master your swing. 

     My passion is giving you a game to enjoy for a lifetime, not a hobby that you need instruction all the time in order to play.  This is a great game to enjoy, compete, socialize, and build business relationships.   Let's work together to get your golfing life on the right track!
