Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What makes a good golf instructor?

A good golf instructor is someone who has the playing skill you’d like to achieve, is qualified to teach golf, and is someone you can get along with. Some experts recommend you only take golf lessons from coaches with active accreditation from reputable associations such as the PGA, LPGA, or similar organizations that focus on continuing education. You’ll be spending hours out on the green with the pro during lessons, so a good rapport, strong communication and the right personality fit are key. A proven track record is also important. Read reviews from their current and former students to make sure they have helped people achieve their golfing goals, and always ask about the instructor’s experience before signing on for lessons. Years of providing lessons can contribute to a deeper understanding of how to teach the sport. Just because your friend or partner is great at golf doesn’t mean they’ll give good golf lessons. Invest in a professional golf instructor who knows how to teach the sport from short game to full swing.

What age should you start golf lessons?

Golf lessons for kids can start as early as age four or five. They’re too young for formal training, but you can keep them interested and engaged and give them a feel for the game. U.S. Kids Golf recommends starting formal training for junior golfers at six years old. It’s important for young golfers to swing clubs that are the right length and weight for their body; U.S. Kids Golf provides a fitting guide.

Golf lessons for kids, especially young kids, should be about encouraging success rather than correcting mistakes, according to U.S. Kids Golf. If you want your child to love golf for life, you want their early experiences to be positive. Golf lessons for kids are less expensive than golf lessons for adults. A monthly rate (including four lessons) for group golf lessons for kids may average $100. Semi-private golf lessons for kids may range from $150 to $200 per month. Location and instructor reputation can also affect cost. Often, discounts are provided when multiple months are purchased at one time.

How much are golf lessons?

Golf lessons are a great way to break into the sport or take your golf game to a new level. The national average cost for golf lessons is $50-$60, but prices will vary based on what type of lessons you want. The most expensive golf lessons will be private instruction with top-tier coaches. These are golf instructors who have held high professional ranking and have a good reputation. Regardless of who is teaching, private instruction is always more costly than couples’ lessons or small group lessons (usually up to four people). Teachers often offer a lower price per lesson when you buy a package of several lessons at one time. Here are some examples of average golf lesson costs:

  • Individual lessons:
    • Standard pricing for 60-minute private lesson: $60.
    • 60-minute lesson with renowned golf coach: $100.
  • Couples’ lessons:
    • Standard pricing for 90-minute duo lesson: $100.
    • 60-minute lesson with renowned golf coach: $125.
  • Golf lesson package pricing:
    • Purchase six individual lessons at one time and save $10.
    • Purchase 10 individual lessons at one time and save $40.
    • Purchase six couples’ lessons at one time and save $40.
    • Purchase 10 couples’ lessons at one time and save $200.

Don was able to provide a 90 minute lesson for me that was right on target for what I wanted (and needed). His instruction improved my golf swing and pitching/chipping significantly in just one lesson.

This guy is awesome. Knows the swing. Knows the psychology of golf. I’ve golfed for 36 years, got in a slump, couldn’t make good contact. This pro literally fixed my problems in an hour & I went out & shot 77, 76, & 76 on a championship golf course in the 3 rounds right after my lesson. I still have some issues but I’ll stick with him & continue working it out.

This was an exceptional first lesson! Don took the time to address all my questions and helped me get a good understanding of the golf game (I am a brand new beginner). Highly recommend!

Talk about a great all around guy! Our son who is 9 walked away smiling and could not stop talking about the game of golf after leaving his first lesson with Don. Stand up guy, knowledgeable about the game, but at the same time makes it very fun and enjoyable which is all we could ask for. Definitely looking forward to continuing lessons with Don and I know our son can't wait to get back at there again. Appreciate all that you do for our boy!

Frank Macioce was patient, listened closely, evaluated my hack (swing) carefully and made basic and easy to understand adjustments in a non-threatening and easy to understand style. I undestood what my goals were and after a few feeble attempts to adjust I was feeling better midway through the first hour lesson. The second lesson was even more informative and I feel I received good value for the time and money spent. Frank is a joy to be with and I look forward to more informative adjustments and improvement. I highly recommend Frank Macioce to anyone seaching for minor or major golf modifications. Getting it long and Keeping it on the short mowed are the goals.

After my first instructor moved I was nervous about coming to a new instructor. Kendal teaches golf as an athletic movement. I was very happy with our first lesson and my ball striking has always improved. Kendal is very good at breaking down movement and gave me different approaches to feel what he was trying to teach. It’s clear he understands the methodology of teaching the sport and is flexible enough to make sure that he teaches the motion in the best way for the individual.

My wife and I were on vacation in the Mesa, AZ area and thought we would Google affordable golf instruction. We received multiple "bids" for our business through Thumbtack, and settled on Don based on his bio. I'm a 16 handicap and my wife is just beginning. We've had a few lessons with Don and he is professional, knowledgeable and absolutely knows how to tailor his teaching methods to both of us. After two lessons I am seeing positive improvements in my shots in both distance and accuracy and the lesson I received today in chipping will lower my score further. I didn't know, what I didn't know about chipping until today. Of note, I've had different instructors over the years that have you do things but they don't explain why. Don is the best instructor I have experienced in identifying issues, explaining what is wrong or could be improved, then showing you how to do it. His tips and notes that he gives you, help you remember the lessons. We both would highly recommend Don.
