    Golf Lessons

Want to start playing the best golf of your life? Stevens Park’s state-of-the-art teaching center can show you how and help you sharpen every aspect of your game.

Our PGA-trained staff offers valuable assistance for beginners and veterans alike through private and semi-private golf lessons. Our expert services include club fittings, video analysis, and a short game area to help you get more out of your game.

Short Game Area

If you want to start shooting lower scores, every tournament player knows that you have to work on your short game. You can already have a great swing, but different weather, wind, temperature or golf course conditions can have an impact on your game. With a ninety yard landing area, two practice greens and a practice bunker, it's a great practice area to sharpen your short game. Free to use for all lesson days, and just a $6.00 all day fee including practice balls and a cart on non-lesson days.

Stevens Park Indoor Facility

With a few visits to Stevens Park's state-of-the-art indoor practice facility, your game will be as good as it has ever been. Equipped with slow motion video technology, you will be able and see and understand the improvements you are making. Our PGA Golf Professionals can assist every skill level from beginner to the seasoned veteran.

Reach Your Potential with Professional Lessons

For beginners who have everything to learn and advanced players who want to fine-tune their technique, Stevens Park Golf Club offers private or group lessons. Our PGA-trained golf professionals provide sessions on the long game, the short game, mental game, course management, and equipment.
