Barney Beard at Rolling Acres driving range.
Excellent teacher and he will give you your first golf lesson for FREE. Have gone back to him many times for many years.

Do they have an area with grass? Last time I was there balls were "worn" and had inconsistent flights.

If your serious about lessons and don’t mind a little trip Greg Coffin’s Peak Performance school is great for a cool getaway. Greg will put together one or two day clinics that work on fundamentals or whatever part of your game you need. I prefer one on one for a few hours rather than one hour lessons( I am a beginner). Strong coaching skills and practical guides. Not in The Villages but worth the trip. Good Luck!

Oxford Golf Academy off of 466. Great place with some very good instructors. My wife and I are both taking lessons there and it’s been great.

Weather doesn’t affect your lesson there as they are set up inside but hitting to the lake. They do video your swing and replay it for you in slo-mo. That can be UGLY

Another vote for lessons at the Continental on 44. Mine were with Sandra, as I wanted a female instructor. Her “Golf Your Best” program is wonderful & tailored to any physical limitations you might have.

My wife also said he's a bit of a "horn blower", but she did learn a lot and was very happy with the class...

Unfortunately she graduated as a "Rules Nazi" and didn't quite grasp the concept of a 2" "gimme". She tried to assess a penalty stroke. Nipped that in the bud, post haste!
