2016 Golf Clinic Schedule Extended Through Mid-September!

All of our golf professionals here at Tahoe Donner Golf Course believe that a golfer learns best when they have a clear understanding of what they have been doing (and why it doesn’t work), what they should be doing (and why it will work) and have some way of verifying their results (feedback).

Lack of understanding is the biggest reason for frustration in learning the game of golf. Teaching must be personalized. Each golfer has his or her own goals, abilities, limitations, personality, and current concept of how to make a golf stroke. Our job as a golf professional is to find the best way to evaluate these factors and make suggestions that each individual player can utilize. No single method suits everyone.

The art of teaching the game of golf is in the ability to connect with players of any level by interpreting and communicating valid concepts in a way that is interesting, easy to understand, and achievable. Our team of golf professionals can help!

Clinics are approximately one hour and will run through mid-September. Please check in with the pro shop prior to the lesson.

What do you do when you miss your approach shot to the green? Panic? Does fear creep into your thoughts? In this lesson we will cover the art of pitching the golf ball onto the green and basic sand techniques that will get you out of trouble every time! No need to be scared of these important shots; get ready to impress yourself on just how easy it can be!

FRIDAYS, 12:00 p.m.

Full Swing – Irons and Hybrids

Cost: $20 per person
Where: Driving Range, Lower Level

Proper fundamentals and correct swing fundamentals are key ingredients to making solid contact with irons and hybrids. We’ll work on a grip that works, teach you how to align yourself to the target, and how to recognize why the golf ball goes left and right and how to correct it. Although this class is a clinic, individual attention will be given to each student so that everyone gets the information that they’re looking for!

Full Swing – Fairway Woods and Driver

Cost: $20 per person
Where: Driving Range, Lower Level

In this clinic we will discuss and implement swing thoughts for your fairway woods and your driver. Yes, these clubs go the farthest, but if they don’t go where you want them to go they can ruin your score… not to mention your confidence. Let our staff help you with your swing and see the results. There’s an old adage in golf: swing smarter, not harder!

SUNDAYS, 9:00 a.m.

Drop-In Clinic

It could be an easy fix, or it could be that what you thought you were doing really isn’t the case. Whatever your question might be we’ll have the answer! Our team of golf professionals will be on hand to assist you to get your swing going in the right direction.
