Extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand Garry's thought process and translate it to your game. One of the best instructors I've seen and far more beneficial than other big box golf lessons.

JJ is just amazing. He is not only an instructor but a cheerleader, he gets genuinely happy when you do well and he never gives up. He teaches different techniques until he finds the ones that work for you. Learning golf with him is easy and so much fun. Thanks JJ!!

Hi Golfers! ⛳ Five Stars to Justin Orbin and Point Venture Golf Club. After months of research and testing clubs, I made an appointment to be fitted for new clubs with Justin Orbin at Point Venture. Today, I played my new clubs for the first time and shot five strokes under my handicap, which if you ask anyone, has nothing to do with my clubs. BTW, they matched the price I researched online and I had my Christmas gift to myself within a week. If you’re in the market for new clubs, lessons, or just a round of golf, I truly recommend buying local and I certainly recommend Justin at Point Venture Golf. You’ll never find a nicer group of people.

    ATR golf was outstanding to work with. Andy didn't try to change my swing. He made a couple of modification to my stance and alignment. What a difference it has made. I would highly recommend Andy if you are looking for some great advice and to lower your score.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
