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.

Just had a lesson today with Christian. What an experience! I have played golf for over 50 years and it was amazing how simple the golf swing can be. I will definitely have more lessons in the future as well as bring my grandson for beginning lessons. Thanks

Great golf lesson for my wife and me. Denis knows what he is talking about. I'm excited about the upcoming golf season because of a few ideas Dennis has me trying that worked very well in the lesson

Iggy was AWESOME to work with! I HIGHLY recommend him. I am 31 (female) and just started playing golf (my husband is obsessed with it). I have never had a golf lesson before Iggy and after taking 3 lessons I had an enormous amount of improvement. Things are starting to “click.” I wish I could continue taking lessons with him throughout the year, but unfortunately I was just in town visiting my in laws for the week. He explains things in a way that make sense. He takes videos of your swing and sends you critiques so you can see exactly what you’re doing verses what you should be doing. He provided me with drills to work on at home too, which is awesome. I will definitely book him again when I’m in town next.

My 9 year old son has been taking lessons from Larry. He has improved his grip, form, and stance as well as developing a routine for addressing the ball. Larry quickly adapdted to my sons skill level and method of learning. He created a very positive experience that has my son more excited about golf than he has been with two years of group lessons.

After playing golf for 25 years my handicap has gone up in the last few years. With that I was losing my envy to play. Already after two lessons, Jim has helped me to correct my swing easily and given me back the fun of the game. I look forward to continuing with him and I highly recommend him. F. S.

I could not have wished for a better teacher! It took him 5 minutes to check me out and to see what I was doing wrong and went right work. I learnes a tremendous amount about golf within in only two lessons and I can't wait until the fall when Iggy comes back to Florida. We are going to pick up right where we left and I look forward to work with Iggy again. Thanks Iggy, you are the best!!!!
