McDowell Mountain learning CenterSince everyone is uniquely different, no two golf swings are the same. Every golfer has specific strengths and limitations. In order for our instruction to be most effective, we take into consideration your body type, personality, learning style, skill level, and your goals. From the true beginner to the touring professional our teaching style and philosophy is the same.

To help you improve your game and lower your scores, we address the full swing, short game, putting, practice routines, course management and the mental aspect of the game. From our personal experience, we are confident that you will gain a better understanding of your game and see progress and results in your first golf lesson.
