We are asked this question every day, and the answer really depends on your individual goals. Typically we recommend taking at least six golf lessons to be able to work through a game plan with your coach to start to reach your golf lesson goals, but it depends on the student. Our coaches are excellent at putting together a lesson plan that matches your specific needs. However, our golf lesson packages follow a basic outline that will give you a little bit more clarity on what to expect in general.
This is the smallest golf lesson package that we recommend taking for any golfer regardless of their goals. The first lesson is primarily a diagnostic lesson. Your coach will listen to your goals, get some background on your game, and really start understanding your swing to be able to come up with the most effective golf lesson plan for YOU.For beginners, the end of the first lesson and the second lesson will focus on fundamentals. Grip, posture, alignment, takeaway, and swing basics will take up a majority of this time, but without these, there is no golf swing. These are the building blocks for success, so while you won’t be smacking drivers right away, this is building towards that. The final lesson will work on fine-tuning your fundamentals and working on the full swing with the shorter clubs in your bag (i.e- pitching wedge, 9 iron and 8 iron.)
The six golf lesson package is when you will really start to see some serious improvements in your game. It will build off of everything you learn in the introductory package and work on the full swing through all the clubs in your bag. You will begin working on the longer irons, hybrids, fairway woods, and driver.For beginners, in lessons 4, 5 and 6, you will also start working on 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, these golf lessons will get into the intricacies of your swing, such as the club positioning throughout the swing, face-angle, and impact position. For advanced players, the last two lessons in a six golf lesson package are often taken out onto the course for a playing lesson where your coach will help you simulate real situations that you would find throughout a round.
The 12 golf lesson package is for people who are serious about learning the game, or advanced players looking to get into the nuances of the golf swing to shave important strokes off of their score. It builds on everything you learned in the previous lessons, but in 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! There is no maximum number of golf lessons you can take to keep improving your game. Though this is the largest lesson package available to book online, feel free to give us a call at 301-500-2516 if you would like to book a larger golf lesson package. Your scorecard will thank you!
