Kevin and Kevin are both FANTASTIC instructors! I thought I was a lost cause before taking golf lessons but by learning proper technique and using their corrections, my golf game has improved significantly. Thank you so much for the fun, informative, and useful lessons!

My new Seemore Mini Giant putter has made me a more confident and better putter in a short period of time. I love that I have a consistent set up by hiding the red dot. Simply brilliant! I an now making more putts from 4 to 5 foot range that I had been previously missing with my other putter. Thank you Richard for taking me through the Seemore putting fitting process. And also taking extra time during the fitting and giving me valuable putting tips and instruction.

Grant uses a lot of new technologies to show you how you are swinging, contact with the ball, and if you are maximizing the contact with the ball. Using an app taht shows you side by side comparisions to yur swing and the pros, very helpful to see. I have only had a few lessons but am learning how to improve my overall swing, stance and grip. Can't wait for the spring time to come so I can put what I have learned so far to the test.

Lower scores and enjoyment are within you! Golf instruction has evolved into a business that sells 'Quick Fixes'. I am here to squash that method and help you understand both the inner and outer aspects of your game. For players of all skill levels and ages. My passion for working with the community combined with my love and deep understanding of all areas of golf, will provide you with a unique learning experience unlike any other. My goal is to leave you with the knowledge of your own game and how it works so that when the ball starts drifting or the putts starts missing, you will know exactly how to correct yourself. Say goodbye to 'Quick fixes', and start thinking like the champion you are!


I teach any kind of golf lesson needed. I cater from the beginner that has never picked up a club to the advanced player that just needs to correct a problem.


I have been around golf from the age of four. I have been playing competitive golf since I was eight years old. I played collegiate in college at Gustavus Adolphus College for all four years. I received the Nick Greeve Award from my coach and teammates for being the hardest worker. I have had formal lessons/swing instructions from University of Minnesota, University of Idaho and University of Oklahoma coaches where I gained my knowledge of the golf swing.


I am an extremely experienced golfer for my age. Although I am only eighteen, I have been giving and receiving golf lessons my whole life. I have a vast knowledge of the golf swing and have a 2.2 handicap myself. I have been accepted into the PGA golf management program at the University of Nebraska with the hopes of one day becoming a certified PGA professional. I have also worked at Mississippi Dunes Golf Links for the past three years. I am willing to do lessons for a very low price and I promise that I will help your golf game exponentially.


I teach golfers of all abilities and help them reach their goals. I teach all aspects of golf including full swing, short game, putting, and strategic course management. Students include state champions, college golfers, and men and women who wish to reach their potential. I will crack your golf game code and help you play your best. I am a Class A PGA professional with over 25 years of experience.

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.
