My lesson rates are $75 for adults. A series of six costs $400. Each golf lesson is one hour of instructional time and up to three players can share (“piggyback”) the session at an increase of only $10 per participant. I also provide reduced rates for Junior Golfers.
First I like to determine whether my student has a desire to improve their physical swing (e.g.: driving range mechanics) or enhance their mental skills (e.g.: playing lesson). I like to use the illustration of a simple mathematic equation to tell the story of golf..."A + B = C." A...represents your ability to swing the golf club. B...reflects your level of thinking on the golf course. And together the sum of both parts equate to your ability to play golf...C. If you increase any part of A or B you get better. So the question is...where do you want to spend your time and money...on the driving range learning how to swing or on the course learning how to score better with what you've got? Every golfer needs to consider the upside to either option. Newer players to the game typically turn to swing mechanics to improve but I think the better alternative for those that are intermediate/advanced is out where the game is actually played. That's not to downplay the relevance of good swing technique...it is essential. And I have the acumen to help you build your golf swing properly. But there's nothing more rewarding to me than to leave you with insight that immediately transfers to the score on your bottom line...and that's achieved by way of a playing lesson. Two hours on the golf course with me can save you years of time in development during play. If our work goes to the lesson tee, first we'll discuss a little bit about your playing background and/or what you are hoping to improve upon in our work together. Then I'll ask you to hit a few shots, during which time I will formulate a corrective course of action to improve your performance. We'll discuss alternative swing styles based on your individual body style, age and physical limitations. Then we'll get to work with repetitive swing drills and develop a routine for your ongoing practice efforts. Every participant leaves with a thorough understanding of exactly what they need to do and how to do it. Furthermore, it's all documented on video for their enjoyment and learning experience.
