    Frequent Questions

Q: I've never hit a golf ball in my life! Is there any hope that I can learn to play a game that I never played as child?
A: There certainly is hope. The majority of golfers start to play golf after they become adults. With the modern equipment and techniques we employ, you quickly learn the basic swing and soon progress to a level of golfing competence that will enable you to find a great deal of enjoyment in playing the game.

Q: Should I take individual lessons or would group lessons be the best way to go?
A: Individual lessons accelerate the learning process by a factor of about three. The personal attention and effort you receive from your instructor in a one-on-one situation is a tremendous advantage. Group lessons, on the other hand, give you an opportunity to see other students just like you learning the same skills at the same speed. Our policy is to allow you to switch from group to individual lessons with full credit at any time during your program. If you decide to take individual instruction, you are entitled to attend group lessons whenever you wish at no extra charge, so you get the best of both worlds.

Q: How long will it take to achieve my goal of reducing my handicap by five shots?
A: The answer depends on whether you decide to take individual or group lessons, and how much time you are able and willing to devote to practice. To some degree it is also a matter of personal aptitude and ability. Although such dramatic advances cannot be expected or guaranteed overnight, we think you'll be delighted with the speed of improvement.

Q: Should I take lessons frequently with short intervals between them, or would it be better to take one or two lessons a week over a longer period of time?
A: Again, this really depends on your commitment to playing and practicing. There are times when two lessons per week are appropriate, however, we recommend one lesson per week only during the first two weeks of your instruction. After that, it makes no sense to take lessons within close proximity of one another. Getting the feel of your new swing can take several weeks to gain the proper feel. Taking multiple lessons in the same week or month could possibly complicate the learning process.

Q: How do you know you can make a better golfer out of me? I've practiced a lot, and I just don't seem to get any better?
A: We are totally committed to improving the golf of every student we have. You may have been practicing without proper guidance, and perhaps even reinforcing bad swing habits. We have the expertise and experience to help you become a better golfer in the shortest possible time.
