Credit Model Coaching

Do you have a schedule that makes it difficult to commit to get coaching? This year a credit model has been created to help people with difficult schedules. You can purchase 10 or 20 credits that can be used for a variety of things like single lessons, group sessions, practice sessions, TPI assessments, on course sessions, and the list goes on and on.

10 credits $599.99 plus tax
20 credits $999.99 plus tax

Credit only Group session Saturday afternoon (2 credits)
These sessions will happen every Saturday afternoon. Each session will have a title and purpose. They will accommodate what the group as a whole is asking for. Some of the ideas are playing 9 holes, short game, goal setting, purposeful practice, shot shaping, etc… Each month I will send a new calendar.

Individual lesson (1.5 credits)
If you are interested in taking an individual lesson they are available through this program. These can be scheduled online.

Supervised Practice (1 credit)
Each week I run two supervised practices on Tuesday and Saturday. They always have a theme and you can sign up for any of those online.

Short Game assessment (1.5 credits)
These can be scheduled at any time and it will give you an idea of where your game stands. It is best to do this as a group so these will be scheduled by demand.

GC Quad Analysis (2 credits)
For those that are unaware of their numbers, yardages or what their club is doing we have a GC Quad that can help. A GC Quad is a launch monitor that will give you the data. The nice thing about the Quad is that it doesn’t lie so if it says you are in to out or too steep you will know. The data from the session will be analyzed and sent to you.

On Course mentorship (3 credits)
If you would like to spend some time playing a few holes on the golf course this program allows that. This is scheduled through myself. If you cannot tell already, I believe in getting on the golf course to see you in action.

TPI Assessment (3 credits)
The Titleist Performance Institute is leading edge in terms of the body swing connection. What they offer is an assessment of where your body is and some workouts to make it stronger. A lot of people have tried to do something in their swing that just might not be possible with the way their body moves. Assessment and workout are included with this.

Scoring Method Manual (2.5 credits)
For those interested in reading about how to score and make better decisions on the golf course I offer an easy-to-read manual. It is yours to keep and I would suggest using it to the fullest.

Club Analysis (1 credit)
Don’t know if the clubs you are using are right for you. I can check that for you. Loft, lie and flex all play a large part in how you strike the ball.

Speed Clinics

Who doesn’t need more speed in their golf swing. Instead of going to the gym why not try to hit the ball farther using Speed Sticks. Speed Sticks are being used by over 600 touring professionals as a program to gain club head speed. This 6-week program on average sees players gain 5mph on their club head speed. Each session will start off with a dynamic warm-up followed by an instructor’s demonstration of what to do. After that each student will go through the protocol with the speed sticks. Each student will be asked to go through the superspeed stick program 3 times a week. There has never been an easier way to increase club head speed. These clinics will be happening on Tuesday afternoons in May.

Cost per month $399.99 plus tax.
Includes clinics, speed sticks and analysis

“The speed sticks have really given me confidence in my swing. I have a definite increase in speed and distance with all of my clubs.”    ~ Sheila

“My speeds went up, but more importantly, my cues for timing the release of the club became much simpler. My ball striking is much more consistent.”    ~ JR

“I learned the difference between swinging harder versus swinging faster. I believe that anyone who enrolls in the program will experience a dramatic improvement in their swing speed.”    ~ Norm

Short Game Clinics

Need a  rundown on how to get it up and down. We will be running short game clinics on Thursday mornings at 8:00pm. Come have your game assessed by our professional staff and finally see the benefit of scoring when you are inside of 100 yards. If you are wondering if you need this clinic you do.

Cost per month $175 plus tax.
Includes clinics, assessment and one supervised practice a month.
