Advice On How To Hire A Top-Level Golf Instructor For Cheap
As a beginner starting out in the game of golf, one of the best ways to advance your game quickly is by going for golfing lessons, particularly in areas of your game where you struggle.
The thing is, there are many golf instructors offering their services, so how do you go about finding the right one that will benefit you, and perhaps more importantly, offer their services at the right price. Here is some practical advice on finding a golf instructor.
Your level of commitment
Start out by determining your level of commitment to both the sport and spending time with an instructor. We all have busy lives so booking six golf lessons, paying in advance and then only attending half of them would be a waste. We will discuss how to start off your golfing instruction a little later.
Determine your budget
Budget plays an important part in finding a golf instructor. As a beginner, choosing an experienced golf instructor will benefit your game, but often, they do not come cheaply. Don’t despair, just be prepared to shop around to find one that fits into your budget.
Start off small
When starting out with golfing lessons, begin with a 30-minute starter. After this, you will know if the instructor is for you or not. Sometimes, people just are not compatible. No point in staying with an instructor that you don’t get along with.
Consider looking online. Many specialist golf sites include sections where instructors can advertise their services. Alternatively, use online portals such as Gumtree and Craigslist. Here you can compare prices, see what each instructor offers and then find one to give you your first 30-minute lesson as advised above.
Try your local golf club
Your local golf club might have a pro that offers lessons. Often, if you are a member, these lessons are given at a big discount, definitely something to take advantage of if you are on a tight budget.
Word of mouth
Ask your golfing buddies for advice as to which instructors they might have used. Not only will they be able to give you sound advice as to what the instructor offers, but you may be able to get a discount because of a referral.
Book The Best Golf Resorts
Review green fees and other expenses not included in your golf holiday package. You want to make sure there are no hidden fees or surprises that could make your trip a bust.
Make plans flexible. Be open to doing other activities besides golf. Make the most of your time on the course and be considerate of other golfers.
Have a list of must-pack items created before you pack. You can get this information from other golfers you know that have taken a similar holiday. You can also review this information through trusted golf publications offering travel tips. You will also want to learn about how to take items you will use on the course such as golf clubs. You could have them sent ahead to your destination before your arrival.
