What can you tell me about the 6 week program?
It is not a one-size-fits-all philosophy that you often here from"guru's" of the game. The theories and ideas put forth in the class have been tested by biomechanics and mechanical engineers at Ohio State University. In golf it is in HOW you practice as much as WHAT you practice. The process involves helping you learn to make the proper moves and then commit them to memory so you can repeat them over and over without even thinking about them. You work with your pro for 6 weeks and then you can come back for free tune ups. The tour pros have this kind of long term relationship with their teaches and this program gives you those same kind of benefits.
Do you cover the short game during the program?
The 6 week program is designed to give you a repeatable swing that you can count on for the rest of your golfing life. Statistics show that improving your distance and accuracy is the quickest way to lower your scores on the golf course. We cover the short game in a separate 2 hour course which is best taken after completing the 6 week session.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the 6 week program is $150.00 which covers everything including balls. NOTE: Additional members from the same household cost $125.00 each.
How often do classes meet?
The classes meet once a week for 6 weeks. Each class lasts 45 minutes to an hour. After the 6 weeks, you might want to take the 2 hour Short Game class devoted to chipping, putting, pitching and sand shots. Date and time of this class will be announced before the end of the 6 week session or by follow up e-mail announcements.
If I can't make a certain class one week can I attend one of the other classes?
Certainly. The classes allow flexibility in your schedule.
Is it okay for beginners to attend the class?
Actually, the program was originally designed for the golfer who had been playing for a while but wanted to play much better. A few years ago we started letting beginners into the school and it has proven to be an excellent program for them. In short, the program is the best way for anyone to become a much better golfer quickly.
Wouldn't private lessons be more effective?
Our instructors, all of whom have given private lessons for many years, say they notice even more student improvement in the school than in private sessions.
