I decided to play golf again after a 20 year layoff, so basically I was starting from scratch. I spent a lot of time at a golf range and watching a lot of YouTube videos. That helps up to a certain point but after not seeing much improvement I decided to find a golf pro who could help me. After searching on the internet and doing my due diligence I decided on Joe Ubil at the Plainfield West 9 Golf club. It was the best golfing decision I've made. Joe has a great golfing background, is an excellent teacher, is very personable and takes his time to fully explain the intricacies of the golf swing. I recently played a round of golf and although I'm not ready for the PGA tour (and never will be!) I was pleased with my vast improvement. I credit Joe with making me enjoy the game once again. You can't go wrong if you decide on him to help you with your game. Thanks Joe!

I really can't say enough good things about Mike. In the short time that I have been a student of his I have seen great improvements in my ball striking and also understanding of the swing. I have been playing this game for over 35 years and taken lessons from a lot of different pros over the years with little success. In fact, prior to starting with Mike I was about ready to give up on this game because I became so frustrated. I knew in my first lesson that he was a great instructor. He immediately picked up on things by watching my swing that prior instructors needed to rely on video which really impressed me. More importantly, he started showing me ways to correct my swing issues that were easy to understand. I would encourage anyone considering lessons to give Mike a call. In one lesson you will clearly see Mike’s tremendous knowledge of the game and his ability to break things down to keep them simple. I am excited about golf again thanks to Mike!

We do not try to mold everyone into one swing model. We test each student to see how they move naturally and help them build a repeatable swing built around their strengths.

I spent several years dreading playing golf because I had a horrible slice. I assumed it was due to the number of years playing baseball. However, after one lesson with Steve I found my swing. I'm now hitting the ball square on a consistent basis and shooting lower scores than I thought I was capable of. I recommend taking lessons with Steve if you are looking to improve your game.

Between Dennis and his father Yaz, I have been given an incredible experience in the game of golf. From swing mechanics, thought process and the overall love of the game, Dennis is by far one of the best instructors in the game and worth the time to spend with him to improve your own game.

Lee from Drop More Putts was a true professional and wizard with the golf club. He provided very effective and brilliant commentary on how to improve. I was a true beginner and he made me feel very confident and comfortable. A very good coach that I will be using for quiet a while I believe.

I love teaching golf. I gain satisfaction from seeing my clients' golf swing steadily improve, providing them with results in their golf games. As a well-versed athlete in many sports, I have perfected a creative approach to coaching. I build upon the strengths of my clients' individual muscularity and mental aptitude to create a consistent and powerful golf swing. I understand how people learn in sports and am able to communicate the fundamentals of golf to anyone, including scratch golfers, high handicappers, beginners, juniors, kids, and seniors. Through my fun, relaxed and creative teaching style, I am able to produce results for my clients in the form of lower scores and more satisfaction with their own performance.

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.

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.

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.
