It's a golf love story. Dan and Brook met while working at the Pebble Beach Golf Academy 24 years ago. Together, they went on to open a new 18-hole course in Oregon where Dan was the Director of Golf and Brook was the Director of Instruction. After traveling to and working at some of the best links on the West Coast, the Brand family settled in Carlsbad, California. One day they thought: What if there was a new kind of golf club that had no home course, very low annual fees, and was full of like-minded people like us? With clear enthusiasm for the sport and an entrepreneurial spirit, this vision became a business. Today, the couple welcomes you to Brand Golf Studio, a dynamic community rooted in love for the game.
2022 CIF Coach of the Year and Head Varsity Girls Golf Coach at Carlsbad High School, Brook honed her game working at top courses in the U.S. At Pebble Beach Golf Academy, she trained under Laird Small, one of the country's leading 50 teachers. Here in North County, Brook developed and shaped a comprehensive year-round golf program for middle schools that began with eight participants and grew to over 75 youth golfers in just two years. She is also passionate about engaging more women in the sport, helping them conquer initial intimidation. When she's not on the course, she's on the court, playing pickleball.
