Golf Lessons

When it comes to improving your game with lessons, there are many types of instruction options available to you. 

Learn more about finding golf lessons near me, taking online or virtual lessons or finding lessons for kids. 

Many lesson packages will start with a new student assessment. This will give both you and your golf coach/instructor/teacher a baseline of where you are starting and allow you to create a lesson plan to meet your future golfing goals.

Before taking lessons from Brad I had a tough time breaking 100 even though I was a 15 handicap two years earlier. I was so frustrated with my game that I almost gave up golf altogether. After just four lessons (and lots of practice) I am striking the ball better than in my entire life!! His calm, measured approach was a perfect match to my personality. There was no magic formula but rather a return to the fundamentals of a solid golf swing which I am building day by day. Golf is fun again! I look forward to continuing my lessons with Brad and becoming the golfer I always dreamed of being.

I have been playing golf for a long time and decided to take a few lessons with Brad. I had not been hitting the ball that well and after just the first lesson with Brad I saw improvement. I played a few days following the first lesson and hit my drives better than I had been for several years. Brad has a way of fine tuning simple things that bring improvement. He is very good at making the adjustments simple and with practice, repeatable. Looking forward to several mor sessions with Brad. Thanks Brad!!!!

I started taking lessons from Brad back in April. My game was so so. Middle 80s most of the time. After 3 lessons and a lot of time practicing my game is now 78-80. He showed me how to improve my golf swing with confidence!! I would highly recommend Brad for future reference!! Thank you Brad!! Bob "bobbyj" Johnson

My first experience with Brad was when I signed up for his golf lessons offered through the Suncoast Technical College. I was impressed with his knowledge and excellent teaching skills. After finishing my group lessons I was able to start playing. He helped immensely. I then attended few of his clinics and signed up for private lessons. What a huge difference it made! He helped with some adjustments that improved my overall distance. The biggest difference was the improvement I saw with my drive. I had better distance and accuracy which in turn helped me with my confidence. If you are a beginner or an experienced golfer, I highly recommend Brad.

I recently had a lesson with Brad and it was time well spent. It was also obvious that he not only knows a lot about golf, he knows just as much about teaching golf. That to me, is of paramount importance if I'm the student! He gave me different ways to practice the skills we worked on and didn't overwhelm me with too many things to remember. Brad is also a really nice guy. I had never met him and was a bit nervous at first. He was kind, encouraging, and quickly made me feel more comfortable. I highly recommend him and won't be taking lessons from anyone else.

I have seen Brad only a few times thus far, and already, he has helped me cut a ton of strokes from my golf game. And just last week, I shot my best round to date. I highly recommend seeing Brad if you wish to improve your golf game.

If you want to play better golf, go see Brad! Before taking lessons from him, I truly did not understand my swing and specifically what to do when it was off. Last week, I started a round well enough but and at the ninth and tenth hole, I lost my swing. Instead of getting frustrated, I was able to refocus on Brad's had been teaching me and turned my round around and finished strong. Even the guys I was playing with noticed the difference. I have seen great improvement and more enjoyment in my game thanks to Brad. He is a great teacher and coach!

I attended Brad’s putting clinic and thoroughly enjoyed it! He was very detailed and concise with his directions and made it easy to understand the drills we were working on. Each drill tested different aspects of the putting stroke that has helped me shave strokes off my game! Brad was great to be around and extremely helpful!

Brad is an excellent golf instructor, he helped me understand the basic concepts of the golf swing. Brad gave me drills that I can go back to when my old habits start creeping back into my golf swing. Easy to talk to and made practice enjoyable

Brad offered very constructive and useful suggestions in a really concise, simple manner. He was helpful and on point with what I needed to do to hit my driver better.

Are Golf Lessons Worth It?

I will answer tis question with a short story...


I always wanted to be able to play an acoustic guitar and was gifted one a few years back. 


Of course, I headed to YouTube to learn what I could as a rank beginner.


If you have tried to improve your golf swing though watching videos… You already know how this ended up.


Yes… I did pick up some things and improved but not nearly the pace as when I scheduled an appointment with a teacher. 


During the lessons, they were able to explain concepts that I had no idea about and drastically shortened my learning curve.


Do you need to take lessons when you first start playing… no. 


However, taking lessons from a professional at the beginning allows you to start having fun and reaching some of your goals quicker than on your own.
