My wife and I took our 4 year old son for his first ever golf lesson with Brendan, he was extremely patient and made the experience fun. He was able to keep my sons interest throughout the 45 min lesson (which is pretty difficult with a 4 year old). Brendan's knowledge of the game and experience with junior (and adult) golfers have convinced us to set up weekly sessions for our son. Highly recommended!

Richard was very easy to schedule time with and his willingness to travel to me made hiring him a no brainer. As a middle aged woman with no golf experience, I was hesitant to try lessons, but Richard was so easy to work with I definitely plan on more lessons. He was patient and able to break everything down so that I knew exactly what he wanted me to do. His easy going demeanor made everything comfortable from the start. Would recommend him highly.

I have taken lessons from golf instructors before. No one has helped me as much as Emily did. She has a way of communicating the information to you in a clear, concise manner that is easy to comprehend and implement. I thought the quality of the lesson was easily worth the price, I have made that back plus more in games with my buddies.

I started working with Marty Evans this past January in the off season. In 2014 at 60 years young, I had my best year in golf dropping 5 shots off my handicap to 4.4 index. But my ball striking was inconsistent so I decided to try the Catalyst Golf Performance. Marty quickly identified why I was inconsistent and we started an exercise program and drills to improve. This year my play has been more consistent and highly recommend Marty to anyone who wants to improve their game.

I have been taking lessons with Lloyd for three years and have watched him teach others as well during that time. IlHe is an amazing golf instructor! I can praise him enough!! He is great with players of all levels. He has a great eye in identifying what needs to be corrected and does a fantastic job of explaining things in multiple ways so each of his students understand what he means. And Lloyd is SO motivating!! He sends his students videos relevant to what they are working on all the time. Lloyd is truly the reason I love golf and continue to play!!

Adam's Golf Lessons

I've been playing for several years now but could never zero in on what I was doing wrong...I just tried to adjust. After just one lesson with Adam I can see a huge difference in my driving and my fairway woods! He took the time to point out a few things with my swing but not to much to overwhelm me. (That's a big problem I've had with other lessons in the past.) I've been practicing the things Adam told me to do in order to improve and I'm super excited to take another lesson to improve my short game! It was a good price and we were able to meet up at the course at a convenient time for me. I would highly recommend Adam to someone who is beginning or someone who's been playing for a while and wants to zero in on something they're doing wrong.

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.
