Mike's golf clinics at Largo are great for golfers of all skill levels -- from people who've never played a round all the way to golfers to want to perfect an aspect of their game. Mike takes the time to work on making you a better golfer. My lessons have improved my grip, alignment, ball position, tempo, putting (my short game is so much better now!), chipping, and more.

My wife and I were new to golfing and we had played for about six weeks on our own. We had also gone to the driving range and listened to other players on how to better our game. However, we could never get our driving game any better. I decided to look online and find a golf instructor. I found James Kyle and I have to say, I was skeptical on how our lesson was going to turn out. We met him at his country club and he made us feel very comfortable and he was able to get our mind off learning and to just to play. We immediately went to the driving range. After the first 30 minutes, my wife and I were driving the ball much further than what we were in the past. With just a few changes in our grip and position, things were better. We practiced for an hour. Once we were done with our lesson, we immediately booked another time later that month. We highly recommend beginner golfers, or even golfers that have played a long time to take the time to learn from James. He is amazing and we look forward to learning so much more about the game, oh ya, and to just have fun!

Scott was awesome to work with. Immediately after taking just a few practice swings he was able to pinpoint the main flaw in my swing. With his help I was able to address the issue. Within minutes I was booming the ball straight and with great distance. I plan to work with him further to adjust and perfect other parts of my game. Golf is now fun again and I’m no longer duck hooking my shots. I appreciated his attentiveness to detail and how we immediately got to work. The guy wasn’t trying to sell his knowledge, instead he was applying it. I would recommend using Scott to anyone struggling with their game and looking to get back on track to making golf enjoyable again.

I had never played golf before and had such a great experience with Tim. Not only is he knowledgeable but he is patient, and made me feel very comfortable. I learned so much about the game of golf and each lesson was right on the golf course at different holes. In only 6 lessons I can now chip, putt and drive which is such an accomplishment considering I had never even swung a golf club before. I am now ready to play 18 holes with my boyfriend...for fun, of course. I highly recommend Tim for golf lessons and I will continue to have him help me with my game in the future.

The simplicity of what I get across to the client. "Simple enough for a 5 year old to understand" I know how difficult this game can be. The golf lingo can be difficult to comprehend. My goal is to ease the mind of the client. Give them simple instructions that are easy for that client to recognize and be able to truly grasp what they are doing, why and how to correct it, minus the frustrations that typically can come with instructors

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.
