Meet the Pro
Chris Armanini, PGA
Aloha! I am Maui's own Golf Instructor, Chris Armanini, PGA. I grew up golfing on Maui and have been fortunate to play golf all around Hawaii, on the US Mainland, and even internationally in Asia and Europe. I’ve had the privilege to learn the game under world class PGA Professionals, play golf collegiately for the University of Hawaii-Hilo and professionally in the PGA Aloha Section Events. I am a PGA Class A Teaching Professional and have furthered my education through the Titleist Performance Institute (Golf Level 3, Junior Development Level 2), US Kids Certified Coach, and the PGA of America.
Recently, I have been honored with the 2019 Aloha Section Youth Development Leader of the Year Award. I specialize in junior development, teaching with physical limitations, maximizing power in the individuals golf swing, and short game technique. I provide high quality golf instruction to all skill levels while focusing on catering to the individual's needs.
Growing up on Maui allows me to offer a golf instruction experience like no other on the island. I was brought up with the Hawaiian/Local Culture and continue to live by these values: family, friends, taking care of the things that take care of us. I’ve been fortunate enough to play every course on island, hundreds or thousands of times and know them all by heart. I offer playing lessons no other golf professional on island can produce. In addition to course management, reading greens and playing strategy, I bring in Hawaiian Culture and local stories to make the golf lesson that much more memorable.
