How many golf lessons do I need?
While every golfer is different, there are some important guidelines to follow to ensure you purchase the right amount of lessons.
Regardless of your situation if you want to see improvement we typically recommend taking at least six golf lessons to work through some sort of a game plan with your coach. Single lessons might be a good fit if you’re just looking for something fun to do on vacation, but to see results 1 hour isn’t typically going to get it done.
6 Hour Golf Lesson Package
The six hour golf lesson package is the bare minimum commitment you can make if you are serious about making improvements in your game. For beginners, 6 hours is enough time to quickly review a few key clubs in your bag. If you’re brand new to the game and serious about learning how to play, the twelve lesson package is more appropriate. However, the 6 hour golf lesson package is perfect for more advanced players looking to fix 1 or 2 problem areas in their game. In the first lesson the coach will lay out a game plan for “the fix” and subsequent lessons will be muscle memory drills and repetitions to ensure your new swing sticks.
12 Hour Golf Lesson Package
For beginners the twelve hour golf lesson package is the perfect fit. It builds off of everything you learn in the introductory package and works on the full swing through all the clubs in your bag. You will begin working on the longer irons, hybrids, fairway woods, and driver.
You will also start working on your short game and putting. Don’t let yourself think this isn’t as much fun as whacking balls on the driving range, this is BY FAR the most important aspect of golf. That’s why they say “drive for show, putt for dough!”
For more advanced players looking to fine-tune their game, this package will get into the intricacies of your swing, such as the club positioning throughout the swing, face-angle, and impact position. Once the swing is complete, some of this lesson time is spent out on the course where your coach will help you simulate real situations that you would find throughout a round.
20 Hour Golf Lesson Package
The twenty hour golf lesson package is for beginners who are serious about learning the game quickly or advanced players looking to shave several strokes off of their score. The 20 lesson package builds on everything you learned in your previous lessons, but in far greater detail. Each golf lesson is broken down into a very specific area to maximize improvement. Entire lessons will be spent on short/mid irons, long irons, fairway woods/drivers, short game and putting.
For beginners, this is when you will have a chance to take a couple lessons out on the course so that when you tee it up with your friends, everyone will be impressed! As we all know, golf is a tough sport and there is no limit to how many lessons you can take. That said, the twenty hour package is the right fit for anyone looking to learn quickly or make major strides in their golf game.
