Berkeley Hall Club senior golf instructor Krista Dunton was recently named among GOLF Magazine’s biennial list of “Top 100 Teachers in America” for 2017-18. Since its inception in 1991, GOLF Magazine’s distinctive ranking has become the industry standard for teaching excellence. New members and the complete list will appear in the March print issue, and online at Golf.com. Dunton has appeared on the Top 100 Teachers in America list since 2011.
Candidates for the list are selected from nominees submitted by the PGA, LPGA, U.S. Golf Teachers Federation, top industry executives and GOLF Magazine readers. More than 250 nominations on average are accepted from the country’s 25,000 instruction professionals. As part of a rigorous selection process, applications are screened against 15 baseline criteria recommended by the Top 100 Teachers Credentials Committee and ranked by a group of active and former Top 100 Teachers. Final recommendations are made by a separate Selection Committee, comprised of GOLF Magazine's instruction editors, established Top 100 Teachers and alumni, and invited World Golf Teachers Hall of Fame members. The recommendations are then submitted to GOLF Magazine for final consideration.
“We applaud Krista's outstanding dedication to the game of golf and the exceptional level of talent she brings to our Berkeley Hall golf community,” said Adrian Morris, Berkeley Hall Club general manager and chief operating officer.
