White Eagle Golf Club is excited to partner with John Means Golf in providing elite golf instruction services to our members and guests.
John Means has been teaching and coaching golf since 1978. Over 100 of his former students have either played for Coach Means or have played on other college golf teams. John was inducted into the Golf Coaches Hall of Fame in 2013 and was named Coach of the Century for the WIAC.
Adults who have taken up the game later in life have developed a love for the game after spending time with John and understanding more about the mechanics of the full swing, short game and putting, as well as course management.

- Full swing video analysis
- Junior Camp (June 18th– 23rd, 2017)
- Adult Schools (June 23rd – 25th and June 30th – July 2nd, 2017)

- Pre-college coaching and mentoring
- 35 years of teaching and coaching experience

I grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and played college golf for the Eau Claire Blugolds. In 2005 my team finished 3rd at the NCAA National Tournament. After college, I moved to the Twin Cities to pursue my career in the golf industry.
My first stop was Hillcrest Golf Club in St. Paul as an Assistant Golf Professional. My next stop was Southview Country Club in W. St Paul. I was there for ten years, three of which I was the Head Golf Professional. I became a member of the PGA of America in 2008.
In Feb of 2017 our son Hogan was born. I am now looking forward to concentrating on being a mom and what first drew me in to golf; which is teaching the game that did so much for me.
During my 12 years in the golf business I have taught all skill levels of golfers…from juniors and beginners to top amateurs. My goal as an instructor is to get the students the proper information to ensure the quickest route to improving.
