I feel that at the end of the day not just about the price. I have seen a couple of threads on golf coaches in the forum. You may want to check them out.

Good Luck...

Agree with streamer. Most coaches are in the range of 80 to 120 per session. But it is important to find one that can help pin point your problems and help you with your game.

if the coach can prescribe to drills for you to work on instead of just telling you what is wrong and how to do correctly... drills will help to make the adjustments better

I believe most coaches do prescribe drills, usually the problem is whether we would faithfully do the drills prescribed.... sigh I know I have that problem of skiving on the drill....

950 is middle of the road. I go to Muru Acad. at warren, $90 per hour. you know Pricing info is easily avail on the net or just a phone call away. Whats not easy to get is testimonials from ex students. The forum and its members can help you more than pricing

hmm well, I dont want too expensive lessons cause I dont plan on asking my parents to help me pay for my lessons, and the army pays NSF's horribly. So I have to work around my miserable pay.

Any coaches at NSRCC to recommend? so far it's the cheapest place with video analysis

It's also important that you are comfortable with the coach. Must have got good feeling. Personal experience i have was being recommended by online forumers but after signing up, don't feel at ease. Sometime very difficult to book for a class. Just my two cents worth......

Just my personal opinion

Cheap / expensive pro may not equate to a good pro. A pro who is able to point out my mistake and help me to correct them , i would not mind paying more for him

I used to had a pro whom i did not spent much when i engaged his service for beginner lesson which i tot was a good deal, the end state was unthinkable. Now i am seeing another pro to correct the mistakes as my previous pro did not do so.

If i could turn back time i would have taken my beginner lesson with my current pro even though he might charge a bit more. I believe in quality over quantity.

My view of golf lesssons:

Just like most things in life, pricing comparison is something that cant be ignored but more importantly, based on affordability and go for the ones which best suit your style , timing etc.

Also, golf lesson with coach is somewhat like a relationship to me, rather than a transaction.

Alll in all,,...if anyone is starting golf, golf lesson is highly recommended................
