This year, we’ll be offering a monthly golf school membership program based around group instruction.  Over the past three years I’ve been offering a lot more group golf classes at our golf school and something amazing has been taking place.  Overall, I’d have to say that the average golfer who participates in group instruction improves more than the average private lesson student!

How can this be? How can a student in a group, who only has a limited amount of personalized instruction actually get better results than someone who spends a solid hour with an instructor? The reasons for improvement are actually quite simple:

- Simple concepts
- Quality practice
- Sense of camaraderie

Unlike during a private lesson, group lessons offer relatively simple motor skill development, lots of time actually hitting shots, and the chance to see your peers succeed (and fail) right next to you.  Also during group golf classes, students are spending more time working at hitting a target than they are trying to make a certain movement. In addition, the students feel like they’re “in the same boat” as the others in the class.

Now let me clarify, I’m not saying that group lessons are superior to private lessons, for some players, private lessons are the way to go… I’m talking about the average private lesson student vs. the average group lesson student.   The average private lesson student just isn’t able to practice as much as they originally intend to.  They gain an understanding of their golf swing, but they don’t put in enough repetitions to make the changes feel natural.
Consider some group golf classes this season, they’re less expensive and you may just be surprised by how much you improve.

Agree...my son attends a clinic, and his game, supplemented by private lessons here and there has been transformed!!!

We decided to have a little fun after last Saturday's work day. This is a great workout to build muscle and improve cardio. Plus it's a fun challenge!
