Awesome coach! I was a complete beginner at golf and after a few 1-hour lessons, am ready to play 18-holes with work colleagues and friends. We covered all aspects of the game such as putting, swing technique, sand traps, chipping, drivers, and course etiquette. He is a high quality coach at an affordable rate. Highly recommend!

I previously received golf lessons from Zach Mahan and he did an incredible job with helping me improve my skills. He was extremely thorough and I am extremely impressed with his level of professionalism and would definitely recommend you receive a lesson from him if you would like to improve in golf.

I have had two golf lessons with John and plan to have more. He is extremely patient and thoughtful in his suggestions on ways to improve swing technique, stance, and follow through for example. Watching the videos he takes definitely can help you get a sense of what you're doing wrong, even if you can't feel it. He has also been very accommodating with scheduling. I'm happy we got connected.

Terry is a great coach, obviously passionate not only about the sport but also helping golfers deeply understand their swing mechanics. He is a patient coach, and uses high-end technological equipment to aid his teaching.

Jim is a fantastic golf instructor for both children and adults. My son has been taking lessons with him for two years and he plays very well. I was motivated to learn so that I can play with my son so I started taking lessons as well. I am so happy at how much my game has improved. Jim does video analysis to show what is wrong with your swing and helps to correct it. He is patient and kind and I enjoy every lesson.

Most Pros focus on fundamentals , which are the foundation of any good golf swing, but leave their students with little idea or instruction on how to actually play the game and learn strategy for executing what they've learn on the range and use it on the course, that's what I do best.

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.
