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

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.

As a collegiate golfer trying to improve my game and fix my swing, Gary has been more than helpful and professional in helping me with my goals. He is a professional in his craft from the moment you first speak to the first lesson and onward. My game is steadily improving in a very short period of time thanks to Gary, and he's really helped me regain lost distance. I would highly recommend Gary to anyone, beginners and competitors alike.

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.

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.

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.
