About kris moe

Kris started the Kris Moe Golf School in Sonoma, California in 1995 and has been a GOLF magazine Top 25 Golf School in America since 2008.

A quick playing history- Kris Moe was a two-time All-American at San Diego State University and California Amateur Champion before qualifying and playing on the PGA Tour in 1986. And then a year on European PGA Tour in 1989. All told, Kris played professional golf in over thirty countries with his most memorable finish being 25th at the 1985 British Open at Royal St. George's where he played the third round with Nick Faldo.

His coaching philosophy-The modern golf coach, Kris believes, brings the right amount of cheer leading and support to his student. He will also coach you through SMART (specific, measurable, actionable, realistic, time related) goals. As a student you will be measured at some point to create a baseline and various times be measured again to see how you are doing with your goals. Kris says “if you can measure it, you can improve it.”

He is a PGA member, an Advanced Impact Zone coach, certified with the Trackman launch monitor, a certified TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) instructor and a certified Ping and Titleist clubfitter. He has also played in 6 major championships (two British Opens, two US Amateurs and two British Amateurs). 

When are the golf schools?

You can pick the days of the week if you are your own group (private, semi-private or small group) otherwise I try to offer them every Friday and Saturday.

Here's What We Do

You’re going to love coming up to Napa to spend the day getting a life changing experience (golf life that is) and new ways to see, feel and play the game! 

Two-Day Agenda


  • Introductions
  • Review of day’s schedule
  • I’ll want to know your personal goals


  • Warm-up movements and stretching
  • Learn the key dynamics of great impact. You’ll be learning these five dynamics that hold true for all shots
  • Measure your baseline in your chipping and pitching (eg location of bottom of divot)
  • Learn the phases of the swing and how to best torque the shaft. Are your releasing the club in the place and do you understand how to release the club? You will.


  • You”ll progressively hit longer and longer shots (eg 40, 60 yards and beyond) while we’re monitoring your divots and ball flight
  • You’ll start building higher energy swings with the longer clubs and we'll help you understand the various energy sources (eg leverage, body rotation etc.) and how well your timing handle and club head in the swing.


  • We’ll usually go out and play on the golf course (sometimes we may spend some more time on the range). I’ll coach you to get the most out of your game by helping you make better choices with your shot selection.
  • You’ll also see how your coach uses a deliberate pre-shot routine so you can use that as a model to copy. A good routine helps us turn off our "thinking mind" and golf more freely.

2:00-I will leave you at this point but you may continue playing




  • Feedback and recap of previous day’s activities
  • Warm-up with stretches
  • You’ll review impact keys with chips and pitches
  • Work out to longer shots while monitoring aspects of your shot quality and how it relates to the impact dynamic’s data. Hitting good golf shots is a balance of good timing of your arm swing and body pivot. We'll drill down to where your miss pattern is stemming from and practice the right action.
  • We'll dig deeper to where your power sources are and how to get more
  • Believe or not at this time you’ll have a very good idea of what is creating your missed shots and have a pretty good idea of how to make the correct adjustments. At this point you are learning to monitor yourself more on your own and this leads to longer lasting improvement!

12:00- 2:00

  • Let’s play on the course and observe. For most of you we’ll still be in practice mode while on the course but we’ve taken a big step into performance mode and that step usually has mental complications which you’ll learn from
  • When we see gaps we can usually drop an extra ball or two to get you more comfortable with a particular shot (eg pitch over a bunker)
  • Have fun and enjoy Chardonnay Golf Club and the beautiful views

2:00 I will leave you at this point but you may continue playing
