Do You Have Any Questions?

Can I book a trial lesson with you?
Most people purchase a minimum of 6 hours to start so I have enough time to look at your game and make a few quick fixes or develop a plan based on your goals. If for some reason you aren’t happy, PlayYourCourse can switch you to a different coach. If they can’t find a coach you like, they will refund you the remaining lessons. But if you would still like a trial lesson you can call 301.500.2516 to set one up.
How can I contact you?
Once you have booked your lesson package, you will immediately receive my contact information. If I don't hear from you, I will call you to finalize your lesson details. You will also receive an email with all of my contact information after you book.
Can you teach more than one person at a time?
Yes, I offer semi­private lessons for up to five students at once. Each additional player is only an extra $40.00 per hour.
Do you offer group lessons?
Not at this time, but private lessons are a great way to learn the basics so you can develop the proper technique and excel faster. However, you can always bring your friends! Each additional student is only $40.00 extra.
When can I start?
As soon as you’d like!
What if it rains?
If it rains we'll reschedule for a sunny day! It won’t be counted as one of your lesson credits.
How do I schedule and pay for my lesson?
You can book directly through the website or feel free to call at 301.500.2516.

Student Reviews

"I started with Tom 6 months ago and all I can say is he has helped me out greatly. Tom is a professional that takes his time, explains everything, and makes it fun even when you get frustrated. His experience and knowledge is unlimited. I would, without hesitation, recommend Tom to anyone who needs to get bad habits corrected."

"Tom U has been teaching my 12 year old son Malachi golf for three years now. I am really impressed with not only my sons golf ability but also the time Tom takes to teaches him to understand the fundamentals of the game of golf. We as his parents could not have found a better teacher or a better person to be part of our sons growth in the game of golf. there are a lot of instructors out there but very few teachers thanks Tom for teaching our son."

"Tom has been very helpful and greatly appreciated by the Cassell family. He has worked with my son for about 2 years and we couldn't be Happier. My son has improved very much!!! THANKS TOM :)"

"Coach Tom is completely amazing and what great progress in a short time! Thankful for the inspiration as well as the instructions."

"Tom is a very knowledgeable and good teacher. He is serious about his job and knows what he is doing. Highly recommend!"

"Tom has been able to help my son improve so much from "the grip" to "the finish"! He's only been working with Mikey for about 2 months and the progress so far has been beyond expectation. In addition, Eagle Crest has an awesome practice facility and beautiful course that's perfect for his playing ability. The best thing is that Mikey really likes working with Tom and that makes it a no brainer. Thanks Tom!!"

"Very informative. It was my second lesson and I feel he has given me some basic tools to work with."

"Excellent session with my grandson today for his first lesson He was able to play 9 holes and keep up with the pace. He missed some shots but none real badly. He even had a birdie!! Thx to Tom for a great job!!"

"Tom Utsler is an Outstanding Golf Instructor. Very generous with his time. Accurate with the information he shares with his students regarding the purest truths about the proper fundamentals of the golf swing. He wants a student to fully understand the WHY of how to effectively play the game of Golf. Tom's a Giver with great knowledge about Golf. As well he has an uncanny ability to recognize the small things in a players swing which either promote or hinder successful ball striking...and he just knows how to share it with you and get you set up to play great golf.
