About

I am a PGA professional who loves to play and teach the game of golf. For more than 30 years, I have been playing golf and have been teaching it for over 17 years. I turned professional in 1993 and have been a class A member of the PGA of America since 1998. I enjoy teaching the seasoned golfer as well as the beginning golfer of all ages. My goal as an instructor is to make each student's experience as enjoyable as possible. At the same time, I want every student to improve their fundamentals and gain a better understanding of their swing in order to play better and increase their enjoyment on the course. I believe that all golfers, whether beginners or world-class players, must work on the basic fundamentals of the swing. Virtually, all top players have a proper grip, appropriate stance/posture and correct ball position. Everyone from recreational to aspiring tour players should follow their lead and develop correct fundamentals. In addition to my 17 years of experience teaching hundreds of students, my teaching style has been influenced by reading numerous books, watching and studying video, using training aids, and attending PGA of America seminars featuring the world's top instructors. Past and current students have had success in lowering their handicap, winning club championships, winning regional events, qualifying for USGA national events, playing collegiate golf, become PGA professionals and play on the PGA tour.

About

I began playing golf when I was young, and I've proven to be very competent at the game. I've played on several school teams, and in turn, I've decided to work toward receiving my PGA credential. Over the last few years, I've taught golf at GolfTec in San Carlos, as well as Deep Cliff Golf Course. I'm very committed toward ensuring my students improve their skills with the game. I'm very comfortable in teaching all ages, and I am good with private, semi-private or group lessons. I provide a relaxed teaching atmosphere that is conducive to learning without any pressure. I'm well versed in the golf equipment industry, having been a tech representative for Callaway Golf.

About

I have been playing golf for 30 years now. I have played and won amateur golf tournaments in the US as well as abroad. I have been a rules official and tournament organizer for many events. I recently won an Open tournament. I have taught golf to over 60 students, in the San Francisco Bay area ranging from beginners to highly advanced golfers. I have taught kids from age 5 to adults and seniors as well. Many of my students play well enough to take part in tournaments and play with e regularly as well. For very new students I help them buy the right equipment and show them the basic rules. For intermediate students I help the correct there swing, short game, putting etc to increase distance, accuracy and consistency. I also help students with course management, reading greens, fitness, etc. We use very simple uncomplicated methodology. We do not completely change your swing, as this will take a long time and too much effort for our students, unless they really want to do so. We also teach you proper golf etiquette and terminology to make it fun to play golf with others.

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.
