“Anne is very knowledgeable, personable and obviously passionate about the game of golf. Very professional, she is an excellent listener and communicator which makes her effective.  Anne’s teaching style is positive, she is observant and explains things clearly and concisely. I had a total of 3 hours of lessons and came away feeling like I definitely learned skills that I will be able to apply to my game. My first round out I cut at least 8 strokes off my score (I had a lot of room for improvement) and am confident that with more practice that I will continue to improve.   The process was easy. Ian was great; courteous, kind and professional.  I will definitely be back!”

“Great facility and very friendly staff. Anne has an unbelievable amount of knowledge but what really sets her apart is her ability to communicate information in way that is easy to understand. She spent time explaining not just how, but also why the swing changes would be beneficial.”
