Most people play golf for enjoyment; and they get more enjoyment when they develop consistency — the ability to hit the kind of shots they like (and shoot scores they like) more often. Therefore, my goal as an instructor is to help people enjoy golf more by helping them find consistency in their skills.
The way to achieve consistency is to develop skills that are simple enough to be repeated. This means a fundamentally sound setup, fewer moving parts in the swing, fewer planes for the parts that do move, and hopefully fewer things cluttering up the mind. Playing golf well is not just about learning what to do — it is learning what not to do, because “less is more” in golf. Removing extra and unnecessary movements allows each golfer to develop a simpler, more consistent swing.
Lessons are generally 45 minutes long. Larger packages usually include at least one on-course lesson that lasts one and a half hours. For two people taking lessons together: take the individual price below and multiply by 1.5 to determine the total cost. The rate for playing lessons includes the cost of playing golf (no other fees are due).

Tournament Players Series
This is a program designed to help junior golfers find a passion for the game, develop their skills, and prepare for competition, all while having fun. Participants meet weekly from November through July, taking a break during the high school golf season (August through October). Sessions usually cost $20, but tournaments and other occasions sometimes cost more. A typical practice lasts one and a half hours: 45 minutes of one-on-one instruction followed by 45 minutes of interactive games and competitions with other participants. The juniors earn points each time they participate, and each time they win a skills challenge. It’s also a TPS tradition to play tournaments throughout the year, especially around holidays, giving the juniors a chance to play for prizes, points, and pizza. At the end of the season there is a group dinner with recognition of the season’s top participants.
There are four groups in the TPS program: the Mini Group is for young golfers from ages 5-9 (sessions for the Mini Group are an hour and cost $15); the Mid Group is for ages 9-12; the High School Group is for ages 13-18; and the Elite Group is by invitation and generally includes junior golfers who shoot scores in the 70’s.
Scheduling and Availability
Below is a typical in-season (March-October) schedule for lesson times, though there might be availability even in the times not listed. During the colder months there are indoor options for lessons, and though I often take off Sunday and Monday in the winter, I also do my best to meet any request I can.
