Just started Welcome2golf course and met a coach Rich at Lion Golf academy. It was really fun and improving my golf skills is really good experience. When I have some trouble with my swings, he helps me to fix the problems. Thanks Rich!

Rich is very knowledgeable in teaching and low key. I enjoy that because I don’t do hyper and pressure well in retirement. For the first time in my life I am looking forward to joining my husband at the driving range.
