I’m very happy for my first lesson. I had never take golf lessons before so I think I met the right instructor. He was very friendly and made me feel comfortable with my lack of knowledge. Thank you Jim! I’ll be back.

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.

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 started my golf lessons with Kati. I developed over 18 months some bad habits with my swing and stance. Bada- bing! My first lesson Kati broke down in simple terms what I needed to change. I seen immediate results in my practice time and on the course. I look forward to the rest of my lessons with her.

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.

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.

Verified review

Hi, my name is Austen and I'm a senior in high school and I'm currently on the high school golf team. I'm one of Lee's students and I've been working with him for about five months now. I can surely say that I have seen a significant difference in my golf game, and I've been playing for twelve years! Lee has given me excellent playing tips and lessons and now I'm saving at least 6-10 strokes per round! Lee is an excellent coach all around and I surely recommend working with him!

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!

Mr. Austin has been a very important milestone in my knowledge of the game. After only 3 lessons, I saw a 60% improvement in my abilities and an 80% improvement in my score. He has proven his years of expertise and the ability to impart that knowledge almost effortlessly. Very highly recommended.

About

I take a personal approach to teaching. I feel my success is best judged by my clients success. I apply the fundamentals to each person individually. You can't teach everyone the same and as a teacher you need to be able to apply the same fundamentals in a different way based on body type, strength, etc. I also believe that too many teachers forget that the difference between shooting in the mid 80's and the 70's is ability from 100 yds and in 90% of the time.

About

I'm a PGA certified golf professional with 20 years of experience in teaching pros and beginners the great game. I work with your swing and perfect it.

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.
