Individual Lessons (Video)

We have the ultimate teaching platform by V1 Video that allows us to capture your swing and replay it frame-by-frame. We can then make an accurate diagnosis of any swing problems and give you a plan for improvement. The key parts of the lesson can be saved on a flash drive for you to review later. It’s absolutely the fastest route to improvement. We also use FlightScope — the world’s first 3D Doppler ball tracking, golf swing and ball flight analysis system — in conjunction with the V1 video system. Call today to schedule an appointment or visit us in person to take the first step to better golf. We are confident we can raise your game.
