Adult Golf Clinic Options & Dates

  • For the Season - "Ultimate Golf" Program (unlimited ~ come to class as often as you would like each week)

"Golf is not a once a week sport. Those who truly want to succeed, like in every sport, receive continuous gentle tweaking of their game instead of needing to come in for an overhaul which typically needs to be done when we see those who come just once in a blue moon. After looking back on my history of successful students who have received college scholarships or played professional golf, many of them I saw more than once a week and many of them came numerous times each week. If they traveled in from out of town where frequent visits were not possible there was often a sense of urgency to learn, change and improve. This holds true whether the student is an adult or a child. The tendency to default back to old habits will always be there. Keeping a constant eye on things can keep the ship sailing in the right direction."
