Adult Golf Clinics

Combined Beginner & Intermediate Levels - COED
Class Size 6:1 Student / Instructor Ratio

Adult group clinics are designed for the beginner golfer as well as the intermediate player. When daylight hours begin to increase and the temperature starts to rise, we look forward to bringing out the golf clubs. Group clinics are a great way to learn to play golf or keep up with your game and have fun too. By continually working on the most important parts of the swing, it can improve how consistent you swing a club and how well you make contact with the ball when you actually play. In this program, students will have the opportunity to work with our teaching professionals in a safe and supportive environment while improving their swing mechanics. In fact, it can be easier to work on grip, posture, turning, weight shift, wrist hinge and more while eliminating the pressures of scoring or the worry of where the ball goes on the course. Let us show you how...you will ultimately hit the ball better, farther, and more consistently and have a lot more fun when you get out on the course!

Adult Golf Clinics: How to Schedule...

  • Adults may register now to attend the six (6) week Spring series beginning the week of April 14, 2020.

    • Students must register for clinics by submitting the registration form with payment prior to the start of the program series.

      • Print and complete a current registration form found below.
      • The registration form and payment must be submitted in advance (PRE-PAY) according to the registration form instructions or bring with you to the first class you attend in the series.
      • You may not pay for classes at the end of the series. You must pre-pay to receive the discounted program rates. Details about the program rates are available below.
      • Series topics will be taught in succession and therefore attending individual classes is discouraged.

    • Schedule all your classes online thru Smarter Lessons.
      • To view the full program calendar and schedule your classes, please create an account on Smarter Lessons
        by clicking on the "Book Now" button below in the yellow highlighted Adult Clinic registration section.
      • Create a separate account for each student.
      • Once complete, you may add the student's name to the online class rosters for the dates they will attend.
      • If you are unable to attend a class date in your series you may attend another day and time in the same week.
      • Any missed classes do not carry over to future series.

  • The more frequently a student attends class and practices what they learn, the greater opportunity they have to enhance their skills in preparation of playing in club events or in a league.

"Golf is not a sport you should practice just once a week. Those who truly want to succeed, like in every sport, receive continuous gentle tweaking of their game instead of needing to come in for an overhaul which typically needs to be done when we see those who come just once in a blue moon. After looking back on my history of successful students who have received college scholarships or played professional golf, many of them I saw more than once a week and many of them came numerous times each week. If they traveled in from out of town where frequent visits were not possible there was often a sense of urgency to learn, change and improve. This holds true whether the student is an adult or a child. The tendency to default back to old habits will always be there. Keeping a constant eye on things can keep the ship sailing in the right direction." - Eric MacCluen
