She was an active member of the Indiana Junior Golf Association, where she showcased her skills at every level. Rachel’s dedication and exceptional performance earned her the prestigious title of Indiana Girls Player of the Year in both 2011 and 2012.

Continuing her golf journey, Rachel attended Yorktown High School, where she played a pivotal role in securing the 2012 IHSAA State Championship for her team. Her success carried over to her college career, where she began at Chicago State University. After a successful freshman year with 7 top 10 finishes, Rachel made the decision to transfer to Missouri State University.

During her time at Missouri State, Rachel’s talent shone brightly. As a member of the team, she played a pivotal role in winning the Missouri Valley Conference Championship in 2017 and 2018, and even advanced to the NCAA regional. In 2018, Rachel had a standout junior year, winning the Missouri Valley Conference Individually. By the end of her college career in 2019, she had secured 3 event wins, over 15 top 10 finishes, and the honor of being named MVC Golfer of the Week 5 times.

Rachel’s passion for the game led her to pursue a professional career. In 2023, she emerged victorious and claimed the title of the Indiana PGA Women’s Open Champion. Her outstanding performance, including a remarkable first round of 5-under par, showcased her skill and determination.

Scott does a great job of providing a competitive and fun environment for junior golfers.  Our 10 year old son plays competitive golf and has been to Scott's golf camps and received private lessons.  Each time he enjoyed learning something new about the game and felt like he was improving.  Scott has also been a tremendous resource in fitting our son for the correct equipment given his skill level and goals.  Whenever we had questions or requests, Scott was always timely with his responses and provided valuable insight to help us make the best investment in our son's game.

Scott D.

After taking lessons from Scott, my game has improved a lot. My handicap has gone down 18 points. Scott has helped me with my swing, stance and hand placement. Seeing myself on video,  I am able to see my swing from different views. Scott points out areas I can improve, as well as good parts of my swing that I need to continue. His training has made a great improvement in my game.

I will be taking lessons from him again to work on my game. I know I will continue to improve.

Karla W.

We first met Scott Barla when he started giving our son golf lessons close to 9 years ago. Scott taught our son the fundamentals of golf at an early age. Our son is currently playing competitive golf on multiple junior tours successfully thanks to Scott’s direction. He has a great understanding of how to teach young golfers the skills as well as the rules of the game. He addresses all aspects the golf game whether it be physical or mental as well as the proper equipment needed for our son’s individual game.  He is very creative with his teaching techniques. He is great working with group lessons or on an individual basis. We would highly recommend Scott as a golf instructor no matter what level of player you are. He has been both incredibly professional while remaining personable. He has been an integral piece of our son’s development as a golfer.

Bradley and Dina R.

I have worked with Scott for 2 years. He has helped me with my golf game. When I started I was a 14 handicap and I got down to a 9. He also work with my wife (who is not a golfer).She enjoyed the lessons. I was fitted for new irons at his new facility. It is very professional. I look forward to working with Scott this winter.

Donnis F.

I have enjoyed working with Scott over the past couple of years. His instructions have helped me be more consistent with my golf swing and putting stroke. I especially like the videos. It helps to see what I am actually doing and I can review  them later as needed.

Debbie G.

Scott did a great job of helping me improve my game. He also did a great job in fitting me for the new clubs that I really love. Thanks so much.

Keith B.

We met Scott Barla and started working with him about 3 years ago when our son was a freshman in high school. Scott has always been professional, knowledgeable and helpful in providing ways to improve our son’s golf game. After growing 5 inches in one year, we worked with Scott to find a new set of clubs that would fit him properly. Scott spent a ton of time trying out several different head and shaft combinations. We ended up with a set of clubs that shaved strokes off his score. I highly recommend Scott and the Barla Golf Academy for all your instruction and club fitting needs.
