Frequently Asked Questions
I have never played golf before and would love to learn.   I just don't know
where to begin.  What do you suggest?
You've come to the right place!  Our suggestion is to schedule an
appointment for a private lesson during which you the basics of the stance
and grip.  We will continue to progress through all the basic skills and learn about the swing.  
The best time to learn is when you have not yet developed the "bad" habits of most golfers.  With
weekly lessons and lots of practice in between, you'll be out on the course in no time!
What is the level of ability of the students who attend your golf schools?
We have students of all abilities, however, most golf school students have at least had
experience on the golf course before.  Students are grouped according to their playing ability.  
This allows each student to gain the most from their session.
What can I work on during a private lesson?
You can work on whatever aspect of the game you choose.   This is YOUR time to learn!  It's
always best to have a good understanding of the basics of the golf swing before we progress
too quickly, so we'll be sure to practice those areas that will help you reach a level of ability you
can be proud of.
How many lessons will I need to take?
Of course, that depends on many factors.  It is generally recommended that our students take a
lesson once a week or every two weeks.  This allows you ample time to practice the skills we
worked on in the previous lesson. Irregardless of how many lessons you are able to schedule,
we will be sure to set you on the right path to improving your golf game.  The practice is up to you!
What is the best age to learn how to golf?
Young or old, there is no better time to learn than right now!  Junior golfers who can barely pick
up the club will learn listening skills, discipline and build a foundation for a game that continues
to grow by leaps and bounds.  Senior golfers can enjoy the game for the exercise,  challenge
and friendly competition that golf offers.
