” My daughter Michelle Liu started with Rob at age 6 and at age 10 Michelle won both the 2017 IMG and US Kids Junior World Championships the same year!
In 2019 at age 12 Michelle became the youngest player in history to compete in an LPGA Tour event. In 2019 at age 12, Michelle became the youngest player in history to win low Canadian at the Canadian Women’s Amateur and also the youngest to ever win the BC Women's Amateur.
Today Michelle is on Team Canada My older daughter Lucy is also coached by Rob. Lucy got to play for Yale University Women’s golf team and graduate from Yale. It is impossible to express the amount of appreciation we have for Rob and the Ivy Golf Academy team.” JENNY XU – LUCY AND MICHELLE’S MOM

WHAT OUR STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY!

ADAM SVENSSON - PGA TOUR

"I have been student and friend of Coach Rob for over twenty years. I would not be on the PGA Tour today without his help to constantly keep improving."

NICK TAYLOR - PGA TOUR

STUDENT

Nick Taylor and I started together in 2006 , shortly after that he won the Canadian Junior and then the Canadian Men’s Amateur. Throughout University where he became NCAA Player of the year and world # 1 on the WAGR. We worked together through Canadian Tour and Web.com earning his PGA Tour start. In 2015 he won his first PGA Tour event in his rookie season at the Sanderson Farms. In 2016 Nick moved to Arizona to follow the tour where he continues his great career, winning again in 2020. Our ten years together was a great experience for me to play a role in Nick’s success along with the other members of his support team.

CHRIS CRISOLOGO- PGA TOUR CANADA

Student

For the past ten years Rob has helped my brother and I develop our games. Recently I was able to qualify for the PGA's Forme Tour! This would not have been possible without the guidance and support Rob gives to me.

PHOEBE YUE - UCLA

STUDENT

“My daughter Phoebe has been working with Rob Houlding and his team for 8 years now she would not be where she is today without them. Under Rob’s coaching Phoebe has competed in multiple US Junior Girls Championships, won the BC Junior Girls Championship, and is now competing for the UCLA Women’s golf team. We are forever grateful to have worked with such amazing people.” MAGGIE – PHOEBE’S MOM

JISOO KEEL - STANFORD

STUDENT

Rob will always be the coach that helped me excel from a young teen all the way to University. With his unparalleled coaching , I was able to win numerous key tournaments. I was also able to play for Team Canada and Stanford University.

LUCY LIU - YALE

STUDENT

” My older daughter Lucy is coached by Rob. Lucy got into Yale University Women’s Golf Team directly as a result of Rob’s coaching. He gave her the skills and confidence to reach high and obtain her goals. It is impossible to express the amount of appreciation we have for Rob .”

PERRY XIN - YALE

STUDENT

Throughout my high-school golf career, Rob was the cornerstone of my success. He is one of the most technically-sound coaches, from putting to full swing. Moreover, Rob is a phenomenal mental coach, a feature that often goes unnoticed. I have always had trouble scoring if my swing went awry, but Rob guided me to overcome the hurdle and helped me score despite the condition of my golf swing. Rob also uses the newest technologies, such as Trackman and Sam Putt Lab, which gives me the feedback I need to improve my game. Thank you, Rob, for helping me get this far, and I wish you success with the academy.

ANGELA ZHANG - COLUMBIA

STUDENT

Without Rob and Coach Matt, Angela wouldn’t be the place she is at now. She won multiple junior championships at the provincial, regional, national, and international level. Now she is playing at an Ivy league university team—Dartmouth Women’s team —- while pursuing her academic success. She is recognized as the athlete of the month at Dartmouth after she brought her team to historic record by shooting the lowest three day tournament score in program history. Thanks again to Rob and Ivy Golf Academy. Angela’s Mom

MICHELLE LIU - TEAM CANADA

STUDENT

I have been a student of the academy for 8 years. I have won both The IMG and US Kids junior world championships, became the youngest in history to win the BC Women's and compete in the CP Womens Open LPGA Tour event. Currently on Team Canada and ranked # 5 on the AJGA. If your serious about golf this academy is the best it gets!

HENRY LEE - TEAM CANADA

STUDENT

I started getting coached by Rob at age ten and within two years started winning tournaments including the 2012 BC Juvenile. Over the next 8 years I enjoyed a lot of success in AJGA and Canadian events and on my University of Washington team as the lead player. Rob was responsible for helping me get recruited to University of Washington Men’s Golf Team. He has always been there for me and I would encourage anyone with high goals in golf to see him. – Henry Lee

LEAH JOHN

“In 2015 I was looking for the Gold Standard of golf instruction for our daughter Leah John and found it . Coach Rob Houlding enabled our daughter to reach her golf dreams for college. In 2018 Leah was runner up in the BC Junior Girls, has won multiple club championships and then received a full ride scholarship at University of Nevada Reno.
