How much are golf lessons?
The price of golf lessons varies from golf club and PGA professional to PGA professional. This is mainly due to the competitive nature of the industry. Each coach is always on the look out for new clients and constantly offering special deals to entice the amateur golfer.
As a rough guide an average hour lesson would cost anywhere between £35 – £65. There are pro’s who have an excellent track record, perhaps even coached or coaching the worlds very best players, who charge a lot more than this. Believe it or not but if you have the funds readily available you can obtain the services of the worlds best golf coaches.
There are many different price structures that can be adopted by the PGA professionals. These are tailored to the clients needs. Be aware that the longer you have a lesson, the more likely it is that the price will reduce. Therefore, if an hour lesson is £50, a two lesson should be less than £100. They may offer playing lessons. A lesson is where the pro walks round with you whilst you play and offers advice/guidance. This approach is constantly growing in popularity. These type of lessons are generally more expensive than a ‘normal’ driving range lesson offering. Other offers could be as gifts/presents. These are in the form of gift cards and generally attract a discount.
Check with your preferred pro if they offer discounts for multiple bookings of lessons, most do, so always ask. Examples may be buy 4 one hour lessons get 5th free. There are also other options available which can be significantly cheaper or even free. These lessons come in the form of video’s found on websites or mobile apps. The long and short of it, the price of a golf lesson fluctuates dramatically. It is for you to shop around, play the bartering game and get the best deal for you. Be warned though that the cheaper, more desperate the pro is to get your business, the more your golf game is to suffer in the long run from poor coaching.
