5 Features Of A Good Golf School

Aug 17, 2007
If you want to make a BIG LEAP in improving your golf game then a golf school is your best bet. A golf school is 100% dedicated to making you a better golfer. The majority of the golf schools can and will teach you to become a better golfer in a short amount of time.

The 5 major features a good golf school should be offering are:

1. No more than a 4 to 1 teaching ratio with 2 to 1 being something to look for and 1 to 1 being ideal. The 1 to 1 teaching ratio schools tend to be a lot pricier, but if you can afford it then it's definitely worth it to your golf game.

2. The golf school's pros should be seasoned teaching professionals that are highly qualified. Make sure at least 2 of the teaching professionals are recognized in the golf world/community. I would even suggest looking in some recent or past golf magazines to see what golf instructors are listed at particular golf schools.

3. The golf school should have accommodations included in the price with the accommodations on or very near the golf course where you're taught. I find this to be convenient because you don't have to worry about booking a room for your stay.

4. The golf school should provide a specific lesson plan for your swing. They should tailor it specifically for you and not follow a caned plan. This is important because every golfer is different and they require a specialized instruction play just for their golf swing.

5. The golf school should provide unlimited follow up via email or phone. I think this is probably the most important because it shows how genuine they are in improving your game. It shows that they're in it for the long run and are dedicated to making you a better golfer.

You should also think of the golf school as a vacation so the accommodations and surrounding area should fit your lifestyle off the course. Also, look for golf schools that provide unlimited golf after your teaching session is over. Try to find some testimonials on their website to see what some of their previous students felt about the course.

US Golf Schools is a great place to perform some due-diligence on the golf schools available in your area that meet your needs. Price will obviously play a big part in your golf school of choice so be sure to set a budget before you start looking for a golf school.

There's a lot of competition between the golf schools for your attendance so expect them to cater to you when you call and inquire about their program. Don't be afraid to ask if they have any specials or if they provide seasonal discounts. If the golf school really wants your business then they'll be willing to accommodate your golfing needs.
