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.

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.

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.
Reviews for Denver golf instructors

Really solid instructor and a genuinely nice guy. Helped make my swing feel a lot more natural and taught me how to chip. Only complaint is that it felt like Rynk was trying to make money off me by selling me stuff before anything, and left me hanging a few times mid lesson when business called. Also got pretty rude with me when I asked if I could split my hour long lessons into half hour lessons and was never sent any of my videos from my lessons as promised. All in all, a good teacher who really loves golf and will help your game.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris for a solid three months the summer of 2019. I was referred to Chris by my good friends at The First Tee of Denver, whom Chris gives his time to help with In-School Programming. Any sort of help was much needed, especially after struggling in the spring season on my University’s Golf Team. We set out to correct the woods mostly. Confidence was low, but Chris’s patience, encouragement, and consistent demeanor helped me quickly realize what was good, and what needed to improve. We fined tuned my full swing mostly, but he did have a few things to offer to my solid short game. He helped with all aspects of ball striking by introducing me to a few drills in order to help weight shift forward and my left turning. He was concerned with my hung back position at impact, and targeted it with focused feelings such as the Gary Player walkthrough drill using the Tour Striker iron. All results were confirmed by consistent use of his Trackman setup. I loved his open system of scheduling, and the lesson package he was able to offer me. The teaching area at Broken Tee is beautiful and conducive for focused work. Chris is an awesome teacher who understands all motions of a powerful and competitive golf swing. He implores technology, as well as a variety of training aides. He was a pleasure to work with, and see multiple times a week. I look forward to working with him more in the near future.
