  • How much do you pay for lessons?

    I found someone other than the guy I can't stand to get lessons from. I gave her a call today and left a message. She got back to me to schedule a lesson and set me up for Saturday morning. Before I got off the phone I asked her what her rates were and she said $100.00 and hour! WTF? Seriously? Am I out of my mind for thinking that is a little over the top? Come at me bros (and sistahs).

    I usually do 30 minute lessons for about 45 bucks. Seems in line, but I think an hour is long for a lesson.

      That sounds very reasonable and what my instructor charges for single lessons. Multiple lessons paid up front gets a pretty nice discount.

          That's pretty normal for around here, at least. Especially if you're just paying for a single lesson.

              Yeah, that's the case. I asked her about packages and I saved $10.00/ hour if I booked a package of 4. She asked me what I'm really trying to accomplish and I told her that I actually shot s decent (for me) round a few weeks ago (88) and that it's all gone downhill ever since. I tld her my mis and that I really wasn't looking to do a swing overhaul but that I think I've got some things going on, fundamentally (i.e. grip, stance, alignment) that are leading to a push that I can't seem to rid myself of with any club and that when I try to correct, I overcompensate and pull hook. She suggested to me to NOT purchase any lesson package just yet and see what we can work on this weekend before we commit to any type of packages. She said my cure could be something very simple. I appreciated the fact that she wasn't trying to hard sell me on $400.00 worth of lessons sight unseen, so at least we're off to a good start.

                I'm paying $70 right now. The head pro is $150 I believe, but since I'm essentially starting from scratch I took the lowest guy on the totem pole.

                      Pretty normal rate for an established pro---and like others have said---usually a discount for packages.

                            Living here in golf country we have a plethora of instructors - Course pros charge between 50 and 65 per hour at the mid range courses. PGASS often has sales on their lessons making them about 50 per hour. Also a few of the courses here offer clinics with a limit of 4 people for 25 per hour

                              I would walk away from $100 an hour, but that's because I'm cheap on those types of things. I think my max would be $80/hr. I found a guy for $60/hr. and booked a lesson recently. I was stoked. Went to the lesson, hit a bunch of balls, and then he said "everything looks pretty good." Then why am I not shooting in the 70s?? Maybe you get what you pay for.
