My wife and I recently started taking lessons from Kati. We have had a very positive experience and she has already taught us a lot. I would highly recommend her for golf lessons. We bought a block of lessons from her and that seems to work best. We can build on our progress each time and our game keeps getting better after every lesson, plus its a better deal if you buy a block. We still have a lot more coming and we are both looking forward to getting better each time. Thanks Kati!

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!

Bret helped me improve my golf game tremendously. Previous to tutoring with Bret I was a complete novice to golf. After a couple of lessons with Bret my golf game improved tremendously. Bret was patient and consultative during the training, and never felt under pressure with Bret. Highly recommend training with him.

Tim is a great teacher. I came to him as a true beginner in golf and now play on a weekly basis 4 years later. From the basics of my the stance and grip to tools and techniques to practice away from the ball, his advice has grown with my game and I always benefit greatly having a lesson with him. Tim always brings it all back to my swing thought, allowing me to simplify my game. He's a very positive and energetic teacher. I highly recommend Tim Parun if you want to get out of your head and into the game with great results.

It was about a year ago when I decided I needed something new in my life and considered taking up golf. I have known Christy Erb for a few years, and she had often mentioned to me that I should take golf lessons with her, give it a try, so the decision was made and I started my lessons with Christy and in truth, had no idea what I was in for… Golf, as many know (and remind me) is an unforgiving game – filled with inconsistencies, unpredictable outcomes and requires a physical form that is unlike any other sport, in other words, you can’t simply just walk up to the little white ball and hit it, because that doesn’t work. Not like Frisbee or football, hitting that white ball with a long club can be the most frustrating act and without any means to an end. When I began my lessons with Christy, I slowly started to realize that this was going to be the challenge of a lifetime, yet Christy has been there to guide me, patiently, where her lessons, starting from the more basic moves of the grip to progression of changes in the swing and stance, are conveyed with clarity, good humor and encouragement. I could be having the worst day with my lessons, where nothing is connecting, and Christy will find that one bright spot in an otherwise dark lesson and help me put it back into perspective. Very encouraging, supportive, just what a student needs.

We have had such a wonderful and positive experience with Pat Diaz. My son attended one of his golf camps this summer and has taken a few group lessons with him. In just a few weeks he has brought his game up so many levels. My son so enjoys working with him because he is so positive and encouraging. We have been so impressed with his passion, professionalism, and golf knowledge. In addition, he is very effective in working with all diferent skill levels in group settings. We are so thankful to be working with him to help advance my son's game, and look forward to working with him much more in the future!

My wife and I are doing a couple's lesson with Gary and we've already been through a couple of months of lessons. So far, things have been beyond expectation. Gary has been extremely accommodative and responsive with scheduling. On the range, he's been very friendly, professional, and most importantly skilled as an instructor. We have a long way to go, but feel we are in the right hands. Thank you Gary, we have been fortunate to find you on thumbtack.

As a non golfer (played many years ago with no lessons) I wanted to get some help with the basics. Searching all over SD luckily found Ruben via Thumbtack. Very responsive and knowledgeable to all my questions. Ruben advised me on what the instructions were to get started. Very straight forward approach. It has been month of lessons about 1 hour 1/2 and I only have positive results to report. No intimidation as novice I have found. Ruben does not let you slide on what your doing wrong his comments are positive, very useful and he knows how to help you correct your putting to driving to understanding the game of golf. I really look forward to the sessions now and only can say to those that want to improve or a wanna be golfer like myself take his class you will not be disappointed. Kudos Ruben your a great teacher who understands how to keep me interested in wanting to play the game of golf.

    Byron Casper is an amazing golf coach. He is extremely skilled. And I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to better their game. He is great to work with and dependable, I have learned allot from him. Not only is he a Great Golf Pro, he is a genuine person. He is truly a golfer that makes the golf world better! I love golf and I am happy I met Byron Casper.


    I am a college-level athlete who is the oldest of three. I'm great with kids and I simply love playing tennis.


    I am an avid golfer who wants to help beginners into the game. I am dedicated to get you out on the course as soon as possible.


    I have been teaching Golf for 29 years and I played on the PGA Tour. I work with children and adults of all skill levels, from total beginners to PGA Tour Players. Teaching all aspects of golf; putting, chipping, sand shots, full swing and golf course management is what sets me apart from most golf instructors. I have studied all parts of this great game of golf and feel confident I can help any part of your golf game!


    If I don't help your game and help you understand golf mentally and physically, I do it free of charge.

    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.
