Private golf Lessons

Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced golfer, private lessons can help you shave strokes off your game. Professional golfers continue to work with “swing doctors” because even they know you can always make an improvement that can pay big dividends on the course.

The key to getting the most out of private lessons is to make sure you provide your instructor with the right information about your game, instead of waiting for him to give you advice.

Tell Your Golf Instructor Your Playing Goals

Before you begin any private golf lesson, talk to your pro about your playing goals. Be specific. This means you need to tell your pro one playing problem you have and then use the lesson to work on that one problem. For example, if you need to work on your chipping, your chip probably results in one main playing problem. This main problem could be one of the following:

  • Hitting too far
  • Hitting too short
  • Slicing
  • Popping the ball up too high
  • No backspin
  • Taking too big a divot
  • Topping the ball

If you tell your instructor how your chipping is affecting your playing, then she will know what your likely technique problem is and can help you fix your problem.

Ask Questions

Don’t be afraid to ask questions during a golf lesson. People learn using visual cues (watching the pro demonstrate a technique), kinesthetically (by hitting balls and making adjustments based on where the ball lands), and by information processing (thinking about advice and feedback). Make sure you understand why your golf pro is telling you to keep your elbows in or your head down by asking for more explanation than just “do this.” He might give you a completely different reason than you thought, helping you add this important technique change to you swing in a more effective way.

Request Practice Suggestions

After each lesson, ask your instructor to lay out a practice routine for you. If you’re going to the driving range, your practice for a long iron should be different than your practice for a driver, even though both shots require a full swing. Hitting the ball with the same club from the same lie 100 times isn’t a good way to practice. That never happens on the course, so in order to create a realistic golf practice, you’ll need to finish each lesson practicing your new swing technique just as you would on the course. That means hitting a drive, a long second shot, and then a pitch and a chip. Make sure you understand how your coach wants you to begin and end each lesson, and what she wants you to do in between.

Follow Up

Your private golf lesson doesn’t end when you leave the driving range. It’s important to let your pro know how your practice went and what happened on the course the next time you played a round. Remember, you’re paying your instructor to help you play better, and he can’t do that unless you let him know what happened after the lesson. Don’t expect a free 15- or 30-minute discussion with your pro, but a quick email or phone call to share feedback will help your pro make sure his lesson helped you improve.

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 6 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.
