Bill is such a joy to work with! I am a beginner and in just a few lessons I have learned so much not only about golf but how important breath and body mechanics relate to it, an approach that really appeals to me also watching the video recordings back really help me implement what he is teaching.. if you want some quality feedback for your golf game I highly recommend Bill. Scheduling was easy, he is always on time and I leave every lesson with so much information.. I am looking forward to continuing lessons and improving my game.
I had the opportunity to have a couple lessons with Mr. Smith( Brian). He is very knowledgeable about techniques and relating them to your swing specifically. His expertise in golf equipment is matched by few and he spends time in helping you to understand what he teaching you about the golf swing and equipment. Lastly, Brian has an excellent personality and is a gentleman. You would be well served to book a lesson with this golf professional.
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.
Never ever stepping foot on a Golf Course before,Brian made it very easy to learn the Basics and Fundamentals of Golf. Just a couple of more lessons i'll be on my way competing with friends and family on the Golf Course. And this is coming from a Sicilian. I highly recomend Brian 10 stars.
Josh is a great golf coach, very encouraging and personable. He does an excellent job of breaking down your golf swing and keeps his advice simple. I have benefitted from focusing on 1-2 key items at a time. Josh recently gave me tips on some drills that I could use to practice putting and the advice was very helpful!
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 cant simply just walk up to the little white ball and hit it, because that doesnt 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.
Tim started out by asking me questions about what I think about a golf swing. He got me to articulate some things I had thought about but never put into words and some things I had never thought about. He showed me another lens for looking at what is happening in my swing and why. It was, simply put, about the body following the mind. Tims philosophy on the golf swing is to work on swing mechanics away from the ball with the goal of winding and unwinding the body and allowing natural movement of the club in a pendulum-esk motion. Then when at the ball, there should only be one "swing thought" in the mind and the body should be relaxed so that it can reflexively follow the minds intention; which is set by the swing thought. I found I had two great results after the lesson: 1) it worked such that I was consistently hitting the ball better and could identify what was off when I missed a shot and 2) the feeling of hitting the ball was so much more enjoyable in my mind and body. I intend to continue to go to Tom for instruction and will also have my girlfriend get some beginner lessons from him.
From day 1, Pat has given me great tools and goals to work towards. These are things I can also practice on my own in between lessons. I would definitely recommend him and his classes.

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.
Mark was a true professional from beginning to end. In the amount time spent with him, I felt I learned alot. He made learning fun! I feel he established a foundation for to start off at. I will highly recommend to friends and will pursue more lessons from him. Thanks Mark.
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.

Jim is extremely patient and works well with everyone, weather youre a beginner or an advanced player if your struggling with any aspect of your game, absolutely go see Jim!
Excellent instructor, but as a beginner I have a lot to learn
