  • 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.
  • 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[1] .
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.[2] , many of which offer private lessons.

Length: 60 minutesClub or School: southern California golf schools
My name is Steve Bean. I run a number of golf schools that offer very affordable pricing on golf instruction packages. I offer one hour golf lessons for $60 a day. If a student purchases 3 or 5 they get a get a discount of pricing. I have been teaching for more than 40 years.
Instead of thinking about price, make sure the instructor you pick has years of experience, uses video, training aids and include on course playing lessons in your package. Also check their customer comments. Do your homework.
