We offer on on one instruction with specific goals in mind.  Whether it’s a private lesson on the lesson tee, putting green or out on the course our student centered approach helps you reach your physical, mental and scoring goals as quickly as possible. 

There is nothing like having the full attention of your instructor and working with them one on one to accomplish your personal goals.  While group instruction is helpful, cost effective and fun, private lessons are tailored to YOUR goals and YOUR needs only.  

You are unique!  There is no one that is built exactly like you.  There is no one that thinks or moves exactly like you do. This is why Maria and her staff tailor private lessons to the individual standing in front of them.  There is not pre set method or program here.  You get unique instruction at each lesson. 


Never Had a Private Lesson?  Here’s a pretty good breakdown of what to expect on a typical hour lesson:

  • 10 minutes: The Interview/Discussion.   
  • 5-10 minutes: Prep. This is where you will get your body ready to perform by stretching, making warm up swing and allowing your instructor to observe the way you move. 
  • 15 minutes: Diagnosis. We film your swing and explain the good and the well, not so good. 
  • 20 minutes: Work Time. This is where we do the heavy lifting making adjustments and working on drills. 
  • 5 minute: Wrap up.  This includes a summary of what you need to work on as well as a practice plan. 

Please Note: For returning students there is always a 10 minute warm up included at the beginning of your lesson.  This allows transition and break time between students.
