My first lesson was very worthwhile, quite different in a good way from golf lessons I had years ago. He started with the basics, really good foundational work. The lesson left me with the idea that I might really learn to play this game. The video clips that he took during the lesson afre very valuable to me for practicing and remembering what I learned.

I have taken lessons from Ben for a few years now, and my handicap has continued to improve (get lower) with time. He has helped my understand what I need to work on to improve, given me drills, and helped me to be able to make adjustments on the golf course when I am not swinging well.

I have taken the first of my four lessons and have dramatically improved my game, Kent spotted a flaw in my setup which cause a slice or fade. This one simple setup flaw was never muteness in all the articles and golf tips I have read. Wish I would have had this lesson years ago

Anthony is a young upcoming PGA professional in the area that educated beyond his year. I have taken golf lesson for three other PGA pros in the area, Anthony has been the only instructor to effectively articulate swing methods and change in a way I can understand. He is very flexible and knowledgeable. He also recommends a set of clubs for me with the proper shafts and I have loved them ever since. I would recommend to anyone.

Absolutely phenomenal!!! I am a beginner golfer with some experience (played several rounds of golf, been to the range a couple of times). He was extremely professional and easy to work with (coming from a beginner). His instruction completely changed my performance with just 1-hour of instruction. I will definitely be using him on a regular basis, he has my highest recommendation.


I was born in Moscow, Russia where I originally started playing tennis and hockey. I was the number one racket player for Wilde Lake High. I play hockey and tennis on the NCAA level for Norwich University where I maintain a 3.87 GPA. I go to school on a hockey scholarship. I got my PTR certificate after I graduated high school to teach tennis to all ages and skill levels. I worked in tennis camps before. I know how to grab kids' attention or have a beginner started.

Scott Dickson is a local PGA Pro at Virginia Oaks golf course in Gainesville, Virginia. He has 12 years experience teaching juniors, seniors, ladies, and gentleman. Beginning golfers are also a specialty. Many lesson plans are available including a 3 lesson series, three one hour lessons that include 9 holes of play with the pro. All this for just $150.


I discovered the game of golf in my early 20s and found that I had a knack for the game. I went from a novice golfer to scratch in a little over nine months, while also joining the ranks of assistant golf professionals. Although I am not affiliated with the PGA in any way, I feel that I've discovered many things about the game of golf which can improve a golfer of novice to close to scratch. I specialize in introducing the game to novice golfers with instruction on the rules of the game, equipment, the full swing, the short game, and putting, as well as etiquette, terminology, and general golf history. Including the latter items in golf instruction helps to instill the sense of reverence with which golfers hold our game.


I am a former high-level junior player, now offering lessons to people of any age and any skill level.


I teach students that are young, usually those from elementary school to high school. I've experienced coaches that are too harsh on their students, thus the students are pushed to the limit of giving up. I incorporate a structured lesson so that the students are enjoying tennis.


I offer private and group golf lessons for adults of all abilities. I have been a PGA instructor for over 22 years. I am available 7 days a week.


I'm passionate about helping people learn to play the game of golf as well as coaching people who already play play to the best of their ability.

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.
