Since 1989 The South Florida teaching base for PGA Hall of Famer Bob Toski and his partner Gary Battersby has been their learning center located on the Coconut Creek Campus of Broward College serving the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Coconut Creek,Coral Springs, Deerfield Beach and Margate.The facility is open to the public, and lends itself to a very casual atmosphere. Toski and Battersby's level of experience is unmatched in the field.
