Also advised by the same lady that I was not to coach or offer any help to my wife while we were practicing. She incidentally is the better golfer. We were both surprised and taken aback by the instructions from this not too friendly lady (a thin brunette for those familiar with the place).

Needless to say won't be returning any time soon; not too customer oriented or friendly. Interestingly enough same scenario with a neighbor and his wife the week before... I didn't believe it and had to see for myself. He was right.............he won't return either.

Default Might have an explanation for this

I know that some instructions over-power the golfer next to you and they have received complaints....Buffalo Ridge is really a nice facility and are very kind and freindly and give very large small basket....They are really not trying to promote instruction through Leighy but trying to keep all of their customers happy....It is hard keeping all of the people happy all of the time!

Being brand new to the game when you go to these various driving ranges do they have clubs that you can use? Being a lefty makes it even tougher and we're not ready to invest in our own clubs.....yet.
