Private Lessons

Private lessons are an excellent opportunity to get specialized, one-on-one instruction with our highly trained staff. Private lessons include an initial assessment where the instructor will determine the player's strengths and weaknesses, and then custom tailor a lesson plan to suit the player's needs.

Lessons are priced based on the player's rating to reflect the depth of preparation required for players of different strengths. Our instructors have years of experience and are eager and ready to bring your game to the next level, no matter your rating.

Meet our instructors!
