I’ve never taken a golf lesson before and Mike was awesome. He explained the fundamentals very clearly and is very patient. He offered numerous ways to approach each skill and had great drills to help develop skills. Great experience, I will absolutely continue to work with him!

Matt was super nice and awesome. My daughter had her first ever golf lesson and she learned so much. I was a bit nervous because she doesn't have any experience besides mini golfing twice, but Matt taught her safety (which is a plus as a parent) and by the end of the lesson she knew how to hold the golf club and even hit the balls. Can't wait for future lessons with him!

Cate was one of the trainers at a private gym I attend. Cate is extremely motivating and knows how far she can push each person she trains to reach their potential fitness level. She changes the workouts to challenge you each week and I always looked forward to her classes. If you had a certain goal in mind or wanted to work on certain fitness areas or nutritional issues she was always available to work with you and offer her expertise. Cate started her training career as I started my fitness challenge and I have watched her grow professionally. Cate has endless energy I miss working out with her. She will be an asset to any fitness team!

This was my first time at getting lessons to improve my game. Ryan made me feel at ease right from the get go. He tailer his lessons to my wishes, starting at what I felt was my weakest link. Although the times were set up for one hour spots, if we were in the middle of something he would see that we finished that lesson even though the time went longer. If you were ever to consider getting lessons to improve on your golfing experience I would highly recommend Ryan to enhance that opportunity.

Overanalysis causes paralysis in golf. Keep golf simple, and you will quickly find your game. I published two distinct golf instructional books on Amazon, Golf Demystified, and Golf 4 Kids. You can offer someone a lesson, and they will come back for more, or you can teach them to be self-sufficient for a lifetime.

I teach golf in a fun and interesting manner. Golf is an incredibly tough psychological game; however, it can be conquered and made fun. I approach the game just as that -- a game. It is not life or death, and when most people relax, they will learn to thrive. If you are interested in learning from a very low handicapped player how to swing the club properly and work your way around the course, try me out.

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.
