The Mohawk Golf Club's Golf Professionals offer a variety of options that would suit your learning needs. Many players elect to purchase a series of lessons with the intent to make a commitment to their game. As well as individual lessons, series of 3, 6 and Unlimited Lessons are offered. That's right - UNLIMITED! Many players like this format because it allows for many teaching opportunities. On-Course lessons are a favorite for the unlimited packages. Concentrating on how to play problem holes and problem shots, using course management, and learning to read greens on the course are just a few of the benefits associated with playing lessons. Experience gives you confidence and confidence breeds a better golf game!
Series of 3 & 6 lessons are good if you want to concentrate on one or two particular areas. You can usually pick up the most amounts of shots around the green and using better course management. Beginners are also best suited for the 3 & 6 package. This will give the beginner an introduction to the fundamentals of the game. Fundamentals such as grip, stance, and posture are some of the basics that help build a reliable golf swing.
