After taking instructions from Walt for the last several months, I've shot my age 3 times this year: 78! I definitely encourage taking advantage of as many lessons as possible.
Friendly personnel; unlimited balls; plenty of space! Visited from out of town. Due to poor weather, the out of town fee was reduced from $20 to $10. Didn't have my own clubs & they didn't have rentals, but David let me use some demos. "Thanks David!" Met a guy by the name of Ken who found four things wrong w/my swing. Improved my swing dramatically. Great visit! 🙂
David fit me with the right clubs for me, ordering today and can't wait to take them to California on vacation and see how I hit!! Thanks David!!
