Aaron has blended his two passions into a one-of-a-kind golfing experience that’s changing the face of the game for the better— and forever.

Meet the Founder

Aaron Bergman

Aaron Bergman, proud father of two, award-winning PGA member, and co-founder of Golfinity, spent countless hours as a student studying under PGA Hall of Fame instructor Manuel de la Torre, shaping his own approach to teaching golf. Aaron has since traveled to nine countries as a golf instructor, helping golfers of all skill levels along the way, from the monarchy of Bhutan to hosting a golf television show in Thailand. In Nepal, his student, Shiva Ram Shrestha, became the first Nepalese Professional to win on the Indian Tour and compete on the Asian Tour. In 2010 Aaron came to Austin to co-found Golf in Schools, an after-school program for elementary-aged students. What started in five schools in Austin grew to over 85 schools in Central Texas, and today, over 2,000 students participate in a Golf in Schools program each year. Using golf as a vehicle to share valuable life lessons, Aaron believes golf has the power to transcend culture and class, and that it is a great tool to connect people with one another. That is why he founded Golfinity, to bring people together and improve the lives of others through the game of golf.
