  • Instructors typically reduce fees by 15 percent or more if golfers buy a bundle of lessons, usually offered in groups of six. Golfers can buy a package of six 30-minute lessons for about $250 ($42 per session) or six hour-long classes for $375 ($62.50 per session.)

What should be included:
  • Sessions should focus on various techniques, including fairway swings, putting and chopping. Instructors may also offer tips on mental preparation and tournament readiness.
  • Most instructors work for country clubs or fitness centers, and should be trained by the Professional Golf Association (PGA) or another golf certification course. Most instructors offer a range of lessons for beginners, intermediate and experienced players.
  • Some instructors use video technology to record the finer points of a golfer's swing, and use computer-generated motion analysis on playback to provide tips for improving techniques. Players often get to take the videos home to practice.
Discounts:
  • Golfers can find deep discounts from instructors or clubs that offer group rates in conjunction with multiple-lesson discounts. A package of six sessions for two golfers is around $450 for hour-long sessions ($37.50 per session), but the price drops to $25 per golfer for a group of five that buys six hour-long sessions for a total of $750.
  • Golfers who sign up for group sessions should play at a similar experience level so that sessions don't leave beginners overwhelmed or more seasoned players bored.
  • Colleges and public school districts often offer less expensive instruction through continuing education courses, according to About.com's guide to taking lessons[1] .
  • Many YMCAs offer PGA-sponsored instruction for as little as $7 per session for adult members and $6 for children. Find out if the YMCA near you offers golf lessons.
  • Golf.com, the website for Golf magazine, offers free tips online for improving your game[2] .
Shopping for golf lessons:
  • The PGA offers a a directory of individual instructors nationwide. Golfable.com provides a directory of 17,000 courses and clubs in the U.S.[3] , many of which offer private lessons.
