    Adult Instruction Programs

Designed to be comprehensive and affordable, our golf instruction programs offer something for everyone.  Just like taking college introductory and more intermediate classes, these series are taught by experienced PGA professionals and trained staff. We pride ourselves on offering a comfortable and fun learning environment and can adapt to everyone’s unique swing needs and styles.  Our teaching staff is led by PGA Director of Golf Jeff Moore, who has taught students of all levels for more than 30 years. Assistant Sarah Overton, a former member of the Iowa women's golf team, also helps when needed. A 6:1 student to teacher ratio ensures that everyone will receive individual attention.

Golf 101 - Teaching the Fundamentals

We offer three, one-hour lessons to introduce our great game. Golf 101 will expose the absolute beginner to basic swing fundamentals and golf terminology and prepare the student for further private instruction or advancement into Golf 201.  Instructors use a simple and fun approach for you to enter the game. This series is a must for anyone wanting to enter the game the right way.  The three one-hour lesson package is $90, or $75 for University of Iowa staff and students. Students that have played only a few times or not at all should sign up for this class before moving onto Golf 201.
