Bob was great. It was awesome to be able to chat with someone as knowledgeable as he is during the lesson and hear his thoughts on what I thought I was doing wrong. Bob knows his golf and he will only steer you in the right direction! I’ve seen much game greatly improve since my lesson with him and I will most definitely be coming back in the future! 10/10 would recommend.Aug 19, 2019Verified
I loved working with Bob. He built confidence in me on my ability to play golf. I look forward to taking my acquired skills out onto the golf course.May 23, 2020Verified
Bob was able to instantly identify what I was doing wrong and correct it with simple instructions that I could apply right away. Within a few swings I couldn’t believe the results, looking forward to the rest of the lessons.May 10, 2020Verified
Bob Ackerman is a fantastic golf teacher! First, imagine how fortunate to gain insight from a former winner of the Michigan Open and the Michigan Senior Open - in the same year! No one else has ever done that! And here he is- helping me. Listening. Keeping it simple. Giving me just a couple ideas to help me improve, right now. I love the guy. As real as they come. In my opinion, you won’t find a better golf instructor. No way. ❤️🏌🏿♂️😎 terryOct 11, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$100 per hour, package of 6 one hour lessons for $500.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Interview the customer to define his most pressing issue and then improve on that as quickly as possible and then go on to the next. My goal is to get the player a lot better as fast as I can and then keep them better as long as I can. This is my nature because of my background as a competitive golfer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been to countless seminars, read countless books, watched countless videos, taken lessons from the top teachers in the world but the best education and training I received was from my father growing up and then the experience from playing competitive golf all my life, instructing golfers on the lesson tee for 35 years and club fitting for 21 years with the same company. I've learned by doing.
