Improve your golf game while playing on an actual course!
I was very fortunate growing up right across the street from the Mt. Prospect Golf Course. MPGC was and still is a park district golf course but a very nice one. I remember numerous summer nights working on my short game from 100 yards and in right on the golf course. Hole #2 to be exact. It was awesome because they had just planted new bent grass on the fairway. I think they were actually testing the grass right on the hole I always practiced on. I felt like a tour star. Unfortunately there were many nights that the local ranger or player’s assistant chased me off the course. Eventually, they would get to know me and find out my goals of making the tour. As I look back I know now that was my most influential golf development. After practicing on the course every night during the summer I had my best year of high school golf dropping 5 shots off my scoring and for my matches. I know on-course golf instruction works first hand and now I want to share the same experience with my students!
In my opinion, playing lessons are the greatest way for someone to learn how to play golf. Every other sport learns on the same surface. The following sports such as Basketball are learned on the court, baseball on the field and swimming in a pool. While you can develop strength, conditioning and other important skills off the field golf needs to be experienced on the course. The driving range is an excellent place to work on your golf swing but golf comes down to one thing and one thing only. And that’s SCORING! How low can you go?! Scoring is developed on the golf course with uneven lies and when your golf ball lands in a divot. When the pressure is on you and you have trees on the right and water on the left. Every course is different and conditions vary from day to day.
I am fortunate to have an excellent learning facility and 9-hole golf course where I can take my student’s. You will benefit from working on your game on the course. We will putt on an actual putting green on the course. Next, you will chip around the green learning the bump and run with a couple of different clubs. There are usually 2 to 3 sand bunkers around the green. You will get a lot of practice with short and medium length sand shots.
Your development will be accelerated with these type of sessions on the course. Hitting shots into narrow greens and navigating different types of lies and angles into the green will make you a better player! Call me today 561-213-8579 and I will get you on the course!
