Wonderful golf instructor. Betty explains and demonstrates each different golf technique in a clear and understandable way. I feel every lesson that I have taken has had satisfactory results and improvement thanks to Betty. Betty believes that golf should be a fun and enjoyable game for all levels, and I am certainly having fun learning with Betty. Would highly recommend Betty for anyone who wants to learn and enjoy the game of golf.

For the past 20 years I have taken dozens of lessons from golf pros in an attempt to not only improve but enjoy the game more as well (I suppose they go hand in hand). Rarely did I take a second lesson from any one of them. They just weren't helpful. Then I saw a flyer about a golf clinic that Ric was doing near my home and I decided to give it one more try. EUREKA! Ric has a special gift for taking each person where are they skill-wise and incrementally improving their skills. By the end of the 6th lesson I gained confidence and competence. Whereas before I wouldn't play with others who I didn't know out of embarrassment, now I can play with other intermediate players. I'll never be on the pro tour because I don't have a lot of natural talent, but thanks to Ric I do enjoy the game and have the tips and tools I need to play. Without hesitation I recommend Ric, and so does everyone else I've met who have taken lessons from him. On top of being a top notch coach he's a genuinely nice human being.

I just had my first golf lesson with Ron. I like his approach to analyzing my swing and showing me ways to improve and giving me specific things to work on. I plan to continue with the lessons on a weekly basis. I expect, with Ron’s help, to see my scores go down by several strokes!

I have been going to Jay on and off for golf lessons over the last couple of years. When I first started I literally could not hit the ball in the air. I learned enough to where in a couple of lessons I could not only hit solid golf shots, but I could also pick out what went wrong on the ones I didn't hit as well. Jay is a phenomenal instructor and incredibly patient with every level of golfer. His greatest asset, even greater than his personal knowledge and understanding of the swing, is his ability to convey that knowledge to a student. I could not have been more pleased by my results over the last couple of years.

I've started taking golf lessons from Dave and I'm very happy with the results so far. We've only just started, but Dave's professionalism and knowledge of the sport makes me excited to continue lessons with him. His video analysis makes it really easy to see what needs improving and he's great about targeting specific problem areas.

I've been playing golf for about 6 years and i've had a couple teachers along the way. Paul has to be one of my favorites. He really knows his stuff and is really in tune with current golf instruction. He can pretty much eye ball the flaws you have and tweak you the right way in a matter of minutes. He also uses video using the V1 app to give you a good visual of what your flaws may be. I personally like Pauls teaching because we are always on the same page and he's super easy to work with. I was having problems with hooking and over drawing the ball and right off the bat he said lets try this ( one piece take-away, keep club head outside the hands, hinge) and voila! a beautiful high tight fade. This was in the first 10 minutes! To top it all off you can't beat his prices. I ended up getting a 6 lesson package to work on all aspects of my game. 3 lessons in and iv'e seen a big improvement in my game. Thanks Paul

After an on again off again attempt to play golf, I finally settled in with David Grant as my instructor. I have progressed from a weekend duffer to a single digit handicap member of our local golf club. I owe all this progress to David and his personalized approach to teaching golf. I recently contacted Dave for a problem I had developed in my back swing. He made an adjustment in my grip and corrected an imbalance in my set up and solved my problem. If you have an opportunity to work with David, take it.

I just had my one year golf anniversary and decided I need to seek some professional help. I took a 2 hour plus lesson not rushed and we had lunch together and talked. We reviewed putting, chipping, pitching for the first half. He would point out areas where I could improve and or make a change to help me find consistency in each category. Then we moved to the driving range and did wedges, irons, woods and driver. A review of stance, routine, posture, aim and how to hit a more consistent shot not heavy or thin. At the end he wanted to give me a little something to help me understand where I can go by showing me how to hit a fade and draw. Now I have a long way to go but I am here to tell you about Robert. He listens and helped me with what I asked for. I got more than a good value for my dollars. He was punctual, friendly, light sense of humor yet understood we were on the clock so we kept it moving. If I had it to do over again I would have done it earlier. Will I use him in the future? Yes Most likely I will work on what I have learned and then do a 30 minute review and 30 minute problem solving on my next lesson in about a month. I gave him 5 stars because he earned it. Not because I plan to see him again or because I am a nice guy.

Have taken golf lessons here at Arroyo Seco from Joe Cano for a couple of years. The place is easy going and feels very personal and private even though it is a public course. Joe is terrific. He is deeply knowledgeable and has an entertaining style in which he uses analogies to make his point about one's swing - this helps a lot in retaining specifics in such a technical sport. Joe incorporates technology by recording your swing using cool mobile apps on his iPad that really let you see the mechanics of what you're doing and the progress you're making. I love this place and there are other instructors who also appear to be doing a great job, but Joe is awesome!

Usually with golf lessons the number one problem is overwhelming the students with too much information. But Jason does very well in explaining your faults and having you work on it with out getting technical. Has a very clear knowledge on simplifying the the golf swing properly. Highly recommend golfers to experience what I've experienced through the lesson.

Eddie was very knowledgeable and professional really trying to help me on my game. I am now on my 5th month continuing my lessons and I have improved rapidly with understanding. He is very patient and not only teaches you the game of golf, he also educated me in all areas in the game physically and mentally. After going through many instructors I highly recommend at least seeing him once. I have introduced him to 3 of my close friends and they feel the same. I believe his first visit is free. Take advantage of it. Thank you Eddie.

Ryan is one of the best golf instructors around. For his age he is unbelievable. My short game woes were solved by Ryan after just a few lessons. I went from a 11 index to a 2 in less than a year with Ryan's help.

Max is an incredible teacher. He takes pride in what he does. He understands the mechanics of the golf swing. Max doesn’t use a bunch of mystical terms and gobbledygook like some golf instructors. He understands how the body works and the biomechanics behind the ideal swing and knows how to share that ideal with his clients. I like Max’s demeanor and relaxed approach. There are no smoke and mirrors — the swing Max teaches, if practiced, is repeatable and reliable under pressure. As a golfer, that is probably the most important thing: being able to develop a repeatable, reliable swing that holds up in pressure situations. I would recommend Max to anyone (except the guys in my regular foursome, because I don’t want them improving like I know they inevitably would if they started taking lessons from Max). Haha. Max is worth every penny.

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.

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.

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.
