Michael Labella, Director of Golf Instruction at Nemacolin

LaBella joined the Nemacolin family in 2020, and has accumulated a few accolades, including recognition as one of the Best Young Teachers in America by Golf Digest magazine. Michael tailors his coaching style to fit the needs of the player in front of him, not adhering to a specific model or one-size-fits-all approach. Through the use of skills assessments, testing, statistical analysis, on-course training, and the use of technology, Michael can assist golfers of all skill levels to reach their personal goals and make golf more enjoyable.

Another resource is Lead Golf Instructor Jarren Harper. He’s been at the academy since the summer of 2021. Prior to his arrival, Jarren spent several years in the Dallas, Texas, area as a lead instructor, developing his coaching style and building relationships with players of all ages and skill levels. Jarren enjoys observing the mental aspects of golf and providing insight to players about managing their thought processes and expectations on the course while working with each player’s individual strengths to reach their desired goals.

Director of Golf Operations Kelly O’Donnell’s desire to bring energy and enthusiasm to the team is your advantage as a new, budding, or got-it-going-on golfer. With two Pete Dye-designed courses, a state-of-the-art academy with professional instructors, a turfgrass team who keeps the greens and fairways pristine, membership opportunities and advantages, a retail shop offering the best equipment and attire to elevate your play, and tee times on Mystic Rock or Shepherd’s Rock, golf at Nemacolin needs to be a resort aspiration and on your itinerary.
