How Many Golf Lessons Do You Need?

This should be based on what you golf goals are, for example if you are a 6 handicap player and want to become a scratch marker, then 2 golf lessons or more a month depending on how many times you can get to the practice range, no point having a lesson if you cannot practice the technique you have been taught. So base the lesson frequency on what you aim to achieve. If you are just starting out I cannot stress enough to have a series of lessons to get you off on the right foot.

So always choose the best golf teacher for you and you will soon find yourself smashing your golf scores and reducing your handicap in no time. Remember to practice quality not quantity, practicing is about grooving what you have learned previously.
