Student Testimonial

Get Ready Golf does just that...gets you ready to play golf in every aspect at a cost efficient price.  Once we completed the series, my husband and I felt ready to be on the golf course.  Golf rules, proper golf etiquette and "time management" for each hole gave us the confidence that we could play the course without inconveniencing other players. The Golf Professional Staff's great instruction helped us to develop our driving, chipping and putting games.  We have a steep learning curve ahead of us...but boy are we having fun with this game!
