Beginner Lessons - Private Golf Lessons or Group Golf Clinic

I am a new golfer and really want to improve by taking beginner golf lessons. What are the different ways to learn how to play golf? Should I take private golf lessons or should I start by taking group golf class? In addition, how do I know which one is best for me?


We will talk about the differences between a private golf lesson and a group golf clinic, but, first let me answer the last question. The answer to which will be best for you will be determined not only which format that you may be more comfortable in. Simply meaning, some people that are a little self-conscious do not want to have anything to do with a group setting. On the other hand, taking a private lesson and be intimidating for other individuals. In addition, you will want to take into consideration your personal learning style. Sorry so vague but that is the real answer.

Private Golf Lesson
The traditional way to take a golf lesson is by taking a private golf lesson. You meet the professional typically on the driving range and pay them to work on the challenges that you may have in your full swing. Keep in mind that there are other aspects to the game other than the full swing. Although it is easy for a golf professional to stay in one spot on the driving range and have their students show up one after the other, the student may need help on their short game, putting or golf course management.

Group Golf Instruction
Learning in a group is another way to learn how to play golf. Finding a beginner clinic will place you with other new golfers who are at the same skill level and can turn into your new playing partners. Typically during a group clinic, the instructor will give a presentation to the group and then allow everyone to spread out on the range tee and will spend some individual time with each student. If you like to learn at your own pace this is a good place for you to start. Without question, there are benefits of taking beginner golf classes to learn how to play the game. The cost to you will be lower in the long run as the pricing for golf classes is considerably lower than that for a private golf lesson. In addition, you can attend with your friends or make some new friends. Either way it will make the game more fun for you.
