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.

I have been playing golf for 40 years and figured its about time to take a lesson. Golf just got a heck of a lot easier. !In one lesson Kevin has cleared my head of all the "keep your head down, point your belly button, tilt your chin, count to 7 .... mumbo jumbo". I can't wait to get on the course today!

One lesson with Larry was worth fifty lessons elsewhere. Larry’s approach is unique, his knowledge of how to transmit the fundamentals and proper technique will give you the confidence to pursue and enjoy your golf game. I highly recommend this pro.

Ive been playing golf about once a month for the last 5 years and finally decided to sign up for my first lesson to learn the fundamentals of the game. Chris was able to help me connect my hands to my swing in a way that was easy to understand and it straightened my shot. He modified my putting grip and I quickly made a birdie. Lots of good drills to practice now, I look forward to the next training round with Chris.

Unbelievable experience! As a beginner I was nervous, anxious and not sure what to expect. Coach Steve from the moment he greeted me was extremely pleasant, polite, professional and made me feel at ease - very comfortable. He gave me an orientation to golf. Simple, easy to understand and not rushed. Because of that the learning experience/process was fun and rewarding. I have never been able to get the ball off the ground but after Coach Steve showed me the proper grip, stance, back swing and follow through (weight shift) 20 minutes later I was consistently hitting the ball up in the air with power! What a thrill. I would defiantly recommend Coach Steve to anyone wanting to learn about golf. Very knowledgeable, through and to the point. I have scheduled another lesson with him next week. Exactly what I was looking for! Thank you Thumbtack!

Chris is helping me to find my way back to playing good golf. I’ve had one lesson so far, and the information that Chris provided to me was spot on. He’s able to look at your swing and diagnose your swing sickness almost instantaneously. You’ll watch video of your swing and Chris will show you your flaws and what you need to do to fix the flaws. He breaks it down for you and not only shows you the right moves, but he also provides the appropriate swing thoughts/concepts that make sense. In my case, I was also doing a lot of good things in spite of a major flaw, which Chris pointed out to me. That’s important because he’s not going to completely overhaul your swing if you don’t need it. Looking forward to future sessions with Chris. Highly recommend!
