Peter is a great golf instructor that I would highly recommend! He is very knowledgable, enjoys what he does, patient, & interacts well with you especially if you're just beginning. I've had 1 lesson, but plan on continuing getting them. If you're ready to try something new or just improve your golf game then give Peter a call. I'm glad I did!

Prior to my corporate retirement, I had the pleasure of belonging to several Country Clubs, and being in the presence of Sam Snead, Raymond Floyd, Chi Chi Rodriguez and others of like value. Upon returning to my homeland nine years ago, I was happy to discover the family-owned 84 Golf Club and meeting SCOTT POLLOCK. I would definitely include him in the likes of the aforementioned outstanding professionals. Scott's passion for the game, skills, knowledge, personality, demeanor, unique-teaching abilities that make you feel comfortable; no matter what your playing level is, places him above and beyond, some of the well-known teachers that I have worked with over the years. He has helped update my skills with driving, fairway woods, irons and putting. Scott has also assisted me in selecting the right-fit clubs for my game. He has all of the latest equipment, technologies and club repairs available on site; and it is always a pleasure to go there to learn, and just hang out at 84 Golf Club. I am very happy to highly recommend SCOTT POLLOCK as my #1 selection, when it comes to all areas of golf. His entire family makes you feel special when frequenting their facilities. Sincerely, John J

About

I have been a member of the PGA of America for nearly 10 years and have worked as a club professional at major resort destinations up and down the east coast of the US. I am from Pittsburgh and my resume speaks for itself: I have logged over 900 hours of Instruction to all age groups and skill levels. I'm offering Instruction for $50 per hour with a guarantee to fix your swing, build your confidence, and lower your scores. Unlike any other, I will come to you and meet you at an area club or practice facility. I am experienced with all types of golfers: teaching and demonstrating the basics of the golf swing (grip, aim, set-up, swing mechanics) to, weekend "hackers", club members, and high school/collegiate golfers. There are many "golf instructors" offering cheap lessons, but I argue, would you go to a doctor who is not certified? Don't let golf frustrate you: leave it to a certified PGA Professional. You will not be disappointed. Hit 'em Long & Straight! -Jeff

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.
