Albert Joshua Corral
As a young child Albert Joshua Corral was introduced to the game of golf and immediately fell in love with it. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, he played Santa Barbara Junior golf, followed by playing all 4 years on the Varsity Golf Team at San Marcos High School. After graduating high school in 2008, Albert played at the collegiate level while attending Santa Barbara City College. During this time, he realized that his love for the game would soon become his ultimate choice in a career path. Albert joined our team of Golf Professionals in September 2012 and is currently enrolled in the PGA Apprentice Program. His knowledge of the game has stemmed from many years of playing both recreational as well as competitive golf. Albert has adult teaching experience and very extensive experience with junior instruction. Albert is an integral part of our weekly clinic series and private instruction. For over twelve years, Albert has been around the game of golf and wants to help everyone enjoy it as much as he does.
