I hired Margo back in the summer and I am happy that I did. I can tell that what she taught me has given me a more fundamentally sound swing. She's a heck of a lot of fun too. Hanging out with Margo is the most fun you can have during golf lessons.

I have taken lessons from Ben for a few years now, and my handicap has continued to improve (get lower) with time. He has helped my understand what I need to work on to improve, given me drills, and helped me to be able to make adjustments on the golf course when I am not swinging well.

Bobby and I recently played 18 together. I had never had a golf lesson in my life, and he was able to explain to me in layman's terms the basics of the swing so that improvement was immediate. He kept it simple and straightforward. Plus he has a great sense of humor!!

Anthony is a young upcoming PGA professional in the area that educated beyond his year. I have taken golf lesson for three other PGA pros in the area, Anthony has been the only instructor to effectively articulate swing methods and change in a way I can understand. He is very flexible and knowledgeable. He also recommends a set of clubs for me with the proper shafts and I have loved them ever since. I would recommend to anyone.

Sports Lessons with Tyler

    Tyler has spent a great deal of time teaching and mentoring my youngest son baseball. I feel like he always expected great things from my son and saw the ability he had and therefore pushed him to play harder and always play up to, if not sometimes beyond his potential. My son has grown up on the baseball field often watching older kids play and thanks to Tyler, my son is often able to throw and play catch with kids that are older than he is because Tyler played him to his potential instead of his age.

    About

    I have been an avid player for 35 years. I attended the Golf Academy of America in Orlando, Florida. I then worked for three years as an instructor at Sea Pines Plantation in Hilton Head, South Carolina. I came back to Richmond to work for the Ben Hogan Golf Company as the Technical Information Service Coordinator. I worked closely with the Tour Rep there. I worked with several PGA and LPGA tour players (equipment) including Tom Lehman, Mark Brooks, Justin Leonard, and Vicky Goetze. I have been teaching golf for over 20 years now.

    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.
