Jim got straight to work. Usually, first lessons I walk away with nothing but Jim gave me drills. Jim wanted to teach me about golf not just to see where I was in my golf game. I will be continuing my work with Jim he is amazing.

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'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

Steve is great. Great instructor.. very knowledgeable about golf. Also I had fun. Steve made it fun. I have seen improvements, just after 1 lesson. I highly recommend Southern California golf schools. I can’t wait till my next lesson.

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 teach fundamental golf, so there is no need for drastic changes to your swing. i use what you already know and add to it. No need to start over in most cases.

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.
