Samuel E. Rice
My name is Sam Rice and I serve as Lead Instructor and Club Fitter at our outdoor Teaching and Club Fitting facility at Echo Valley Country Club, Norwalk, IA. In the winters I come back inside to Ken Schall Perfomance studio, so I offer lessons and fittings all year round.
Between shadowing Ken Schall and my professional golf management internships at several fine facilities including: The Aspen Club (Aspen, CO), Glen Oaks Country Club, The Traditions Club (College Station, TX), Des Moines Golf & Country Club and most recently, as an Assistant at Hyperion Field Club, I have been put into a really good spot to hone in my teaching skills.
Since I started working at Ken Schall Performance Studio in Jan of 2021, I have given over 1,500 lessons. I enjoy working with all ages and skill levels to reach your specific goals, it's never to late to learn this amazing game!
