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.

Reached out to Jeff to get a golf lesson for one of my buddies. Lesson went great, my friend learned a lot, and he can't wait to learn more. Jeff was super flexible in scheduling a time that accommodated his schedule. Thanks!

I came into the lesson with a terrible swing, and left feeling like I made a huge step towards perfecting my golf swing. Coach Jeff really helped break down my swing and helped me understand what I was doing wrong. I will definitely be scheduling another lesson with him. Thanks again looking forward to Another lesson.

Jeff is the golf instructor that my family has been searching for. He understood that we all had different levels of play, and was able to still cater a single lesson to each of us. Within 2 hours of in-depth, personal instruction, my mother and father were both hitting golf balls with smooth swings, and my iron shots have never felt so clean. He has a wonderful personality and his knowledge of the game is incredible. Can’t thank Jeff enough for this lesson, and I plan to recommend him to all my friends.

No joke learned a proper golf swing in two lessons! Just saying that Jeff helps is an understatement, he is approachable and knows what he is doing!! Would highly recommend but not to my friends so I stay ahead of the competition ;)

Deciding to get my father an early birthday gift by scheduling a few golf lessons with Jeff Carine. Jeff came highly recommended by a friend and work colleague. After one lesson it seemed my father was hooked. Jeff explained things in a way that were easy to understand and tips that are definitely going to improve my fathers swing. Great Price with a great instructor.

I have been golfing for a few years and I have reached a pretty good level on my own. I have trouble finding a good fit for a golf coach until I met John. He is very knowledgeable and is a great teacher. I have learned a lot just from a couple lessons. He is very personable and you can tell that he truly cares about your improvement. If you want to improve your game, John is a great choice!

I met with Jeff for the first of many lessons to come. I am not easy to coach but he is happy to work with my style and improve the aspects I need help with. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable on the golf swing and how to explain it. I would recommend him for all levels from beginner to professional.

I had an AMAZING first lesson! I am a brand new golfer in my 30's and I wasn't sure what to expect when hiring a pro. Jeff made me feel at ease, asked good questions, and was easy to understand. He knew when to encourage me and when to give feedback. Coach has a cool, calm, and collected demeanor. I left with an understanding of the basics of a golf swing, my own before and after videos, some exercises to do at home, and pumped up for my next lesson! I would recommend Jeff Carine without any objections!
