5.) There are certain schools that concentrate on certain aspects of teaching. Do you need work on your putting? Choose a school that is strong in that area of the game. If you need work on your swing, choose accordingly. Golf instruction websites will indicate if they specialize to certain weaknesses.
6.) The golf school should provide a specific lesson plan for your swing. They should tailor it specifically for you and not for everyone else. There is no way to research this other than word of mouth.
7.) The school should provide unlimited follow up via email or phone. I think this is probably the most important because it shows how genuine they are in improving your game.
8.) Look for testimonials. Do not rely on testimonials on their own brochures or websites. Look for ratings from other outside sources. These may not be available, but look anyway. It is a true measure of the school. Word of mouth is very powerful.
9.) If you should also think of the school as a vacation the accommodations and surrounding area should fit your lifestyle off the course. Also, look for golf schools that provide unlimited golf after your teaching sessions are over. Be sure to get your moneys worth.
10.) If you cannot afford the price of a golf school check the websites for free advice. There are many websites out there that give free lessons and tips. Some even provide video demonstrations.
The Internet is a great place to research the golf schools available in your area that meet your needs. Here are some keywords you can use when performing your golf school search:
Golf schools, Golf instruction, Golf swing, Free Golf tips, Golf lessons
When choosing a golf school you should consider these 10 basic rules;
1.) Decide what you are willing to spend before looking. The best schools charge in the low to mid 1000's, but do offer great amenities as well as highly professional instructors. Most of the best schools offer great vacation packages that are included in the price. Ask about special pricing. Some schools may drop their prices if they need students. If you are willing to commute, prices can be as low as $300.00.
2.) Look for 2 to 1 teaching ratio with 1 to 1 being ideal. Never use more than a 4 to 1 ratio unless you cannot afford the higher price schools.
3.) The school's instructors should be seasoned professionals that are highly qualified. Make sure at least 2 of the teaching professionals are recognized in the golf world/community. Use the internet search engines to research names of the instructors being used at the school you are considering.
4.) If you choose a school that includes accommodations and transportation included in the price, research the hotel as well. It is always better to have accommodations close to the golf course you are receiving lessons from. Most of the great schools will cater to your needs because word of mouth is there best advertisement for return business.
