I've taken lessons here and with Steve at Oxford Golf on 301. Highly recommend Steve. Other neighbors feel the same.

Oxford Golf center on rt 301 has hired another golf instructor, Ryan. great lessons without the rush, completely focused on the student. Sandra is the "best" and she has trained Ryan.

I enjoyed Joey Hydock at Sarasota. My lessons were a couple years ago so I assume he is still there. He was listed in Golf Digest as one of the 50 best instructors in Florida.

Joey HiDock is the best I have ever seen. You should give him a try.

The ladies seem to like Craig at Sarasota. I'm a guy and was not too impressed with him. Not bad but likes to talk about his time "on the bag" with with the pros. Won't go back.

Craig Griffen is a teaching wizard. Working with Craig I took my index from 25.8 to 14.4 in about 8 months.

Joey Hidock is very good. Knows his business, and knows how to get instruction across in terms you can understand. Money well spent. Great guy as well!

My husband and I have taken lessons with Sandra Chester at Golf Your Best in Oxford on 301. She is a very patient and caring instructor. She devotes her time with you and only you during your scheduled time and I plan to continue to schedule with her and her instructors in the future.
