Default Golf Lesson Suggestions?

Looking at a possible holiday gift for resident of the Villages. Did a search here but did not find any tutor names only a golf academy mention. Any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated.

Default Change last name spelling from Reisch to Wresch.

I've heard all the pro's in the Villages are outstanding. However, I was introduced to Steve Wresch, the pro at Continental Country Club on 44 by a mutualk acquintance. Being total novices my wife and I have really appreciated and enjoyed the instruction from Steve. 856-546-4867

I will second Steve at the Continental Country club. However, I thought his last name was Wresch. In any case, he has helped my game immensely.

I would highly recommend Craig Griffin at the Villages Golf Academy's Sarasota facility. He did wonders for my swing.

Also at Continental Country Club, that's on 44 between Buena Vista and Morse, is Sandra Chester. She use be based at the Hwy 301 driving range until they closed. I use to listen to her and students everytime I was there, she's excellent. Just do a search and you'll find her in this site recommended quite often.

Here's her website;

We had never swung a club even though we had tried without guidance. We took lessons with David Sherman at The Villages Golf Academy. He was terrific.

John Ford at GNLGolf. com is an experience in itself. He built clubs for Jack Nicklaus and makes custom clubs for customers. Maria at the Palmer Academy is wonderful too.

Another vote for Sandra. You can take individual or group lessons. She works with any physical problems you may have, to adapt for arthritis, etc

Craig is great. He fixed my swing and now I hit all my drives straight down the middle. He is one of the premium instructors in the villages and costs a little more, but well worth it.

Agree, had hitch in my swing while hitting only my irons that could not feel. One lesson and he picked up on the issue I couldn't correct on my own. Hitting my irons great again.
Always recommend a pro to new players to avoid what I did, just go out and hack around the golf course. The things you learn to do incorrectly take a long time and much frustration to fix. Just my opinion.

My wife had Joey at Sarasota. Nice guy, but spent too much time talking about himself, his history, etc. Less than 1/2 the time was on her golf swing. Left with one minor drill. Again, nice guy.
