Do you have any questions?

Will my lesson be on the course or driving range?
The majority of PlayYourCourse lessons take place on the driving range or short game area and putting green. If you are interested in on-course playing lessons check out the pro’s profiles or give our sales team a call for details. If you do go out on the course we recommend a minimum of 4 hours. There may be an additional fee for on-course lessons.
How do I know I’ll love my coach?
We are so confident in our coaches that we offer a satisfaction guarantee. If we can’t find the perfect instructor for you then we will refund your unused lesson credits.
Can I start with a trial lesson?
Definitely! However, we do recommend going with at least our 3 lesson package to really give you the time you need to work through your swing goals. With our satisfaction guarantee, there is no risk at all, and our package pricing saves you money!
Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely! Each extra golfer is a small additional fee per hour based on the pro’s individual rates. Adding friends is a great way to cut down on your lesson costs.
Will my pro use video analysis in the lesson?
Many of our pros utilize video analysis as an instructional tool in their lessons. Visit each pro's profile to see if it is a service included in their lesson for no additional cost!
How do I get in contact with my instructor?
Once you have booked your lesson package, you will immediately receive your instructor's contact information. The quickest way to schedule your first lesson is to call or text your coach and they'll get back to you asap. If your coach doesn't hear from you they'll reach out within 24 hours.

Chicago, IL Golf Lessons

Close-Up: The Golf Scene In Chicago, IL

Chicago just may be the most historic golf city in the entire country. It is home to several of the best courses in the nation, and is the city that helped put golf on the map in the United States. It all started in 1888 with Charles McDonald, now fondly known as the “Father of Golf.” McDonald went to college in Scotland and fell in love with the game. He brought back a set of clubs and set up several makeshift holes to show his friends. With their interest piqued, he collected donations of ten dollars to acquire the land for what would become the nation’s first eighteen-hole golf course, the Chicago Golf Club. Its membership grew quickly and the community become ravenous for more golf. McDonald and other club leaders joined up with four other golf clubs around the nation in 1894 to create the United States Golf Association (USGA) which is golf’s governing body to this day. Over the years has hosted US Opens, US Amateurs, Walker Cups, and other major international competitions. Though the club is now considered too short to host major championships, it is still ranked the 14th best course in the nation.

It truly is remarkable the amount of golf options that Chicago has to offer. The city and surrounding areas are home to over two hundred courses, so regardless of your ability or budget, there will always be something for you. The Chicago Park District owns and operates six courses and three driving ranges right in the city. Their two flagship courses, the Sydney R. Marovitz and the Jackson Park Golf Course are meticulously maintained and offer beauty (and challenges) for all golfers. Despite their history, layout and wonderful playability, they are still very affordable, just like the other facilities operated by the Park District. Even on a peak-weekend, you will never spend much more than thirty dollars for a round. That’s hard to beat!

Located thirty miles outside of the city you will find one of the nation’s most incredible golf destinations, Cog Hill Golf and Country Club. The facility is open to the public and features four incredible eighteen hole courses. They have hosted PGA TOUR events and their most famous course, named “Dubsdread,” is regularly ranked one of the best public courses in the nation. There is one venue that stands above the rest in Chicago, however: Medinah Country Club. Medinah is one of America’s truly great, and elite private golf facilities. It features three 18-hole courses and has hosted five major championships, as well as the 2012 Ryder Cup. It covers an impressive 640 acres and has one of the most impressive clubhouses you will find anywhere.
