Golf is a sport that is meant to be enjoyed. Learning the game should fun too. You will learn in a relaxed, but educational atmosphere.

Private lessons, at the request of the student, may focus on the full swing, short game, or putting. Playing lessons, focusing on golf course management, are also available with an advance tee time. All swing lessons include expert advice, Trackman swing data analysis, and a voiced-over video recording that summarizes the lesson.Your first private lesson will start with an approximate 15 minute conversation and initial swing analysis. This is when your goals are communicated and an initial improvement plan is developed.

April - November, all lessons are conducted outdoors, weather permitting. December - March, lessons are conducted indoors. All lessons are conducted at NorthStar Golf Club.
