I signed up with Tony Griffi of Tony Griffi Enterprises for some golf lessons. He runs a service called Hands On Golf Consulting and that is what I was expecting. I paid in advance the $1775 registration fee and then we met for our first of twenty (20) personalized lessons. He was late for our first meeting by fifteen minutes, yet he apparently lives less than 4km away from Sawmill Creek Golf Resort and Spa in Camlachie, Ontario where we were meeting for my lesson. He did not apologize for being late and we went on with the lesson.
The first lesson was supposed to be two hours long but after 50 minutes, Tony said that was enough for today and we set up our next appointment for two days later. Two days later when I show up, he does not. I call him, he does not answer. I try to call him repeatedly for 8 days. He works at this Sawmill Creek place so I managed to track him down one day at work so we could work out our next meeting. [continued below]....
..... He states that he was sick and will give me two (2) free lessons for my inconvenience. We set up to meet the next afternoon.
This time Tony Griffi shows up on time and the day goes well. He says to call him to set up the next lesson. Which I tried to do two days later. I left numerous voicemails and he never to this day returned them. I ended up talking to my lawyer who looked over my agreement with Tony Griffi Enterprises (Handsongolfconsulting.com) who said that I had a case against him for not fulfilling his end of the contract.
Of the 20 + 2free = 22 lessons I was supposed to receive, I received 1.5/22. Tony Griffi pocketed all of my $1775 and I got screwed. I will get my money back through civil court but I just wanted the world to know what a dishonest and shady person Tony Griffi is. I thought with his experience playing golf all his life that he would be a good teacher. I was DEAD wrong!!! Avoid this man at any cost!!!
