Private or Semi-Private Coaching Sessions with Sarah

This year step outside the box and try something different for your game. Go beyond the typical lesson format with a coaching session that will target your weaknesses and increase your performance when it counts, on the golf course. Playing golf is more than perfecting your swing. If you want to hit better shots more often and shoot lower scores, you need a coach who can identify areas in your game that need immediate improvement. And that means you need to take your game from the range to the golf course. Coaching sessions are 2 hours long and include time on the practice facility and on the golf course. Sessions start on the range where together we will identify the areas of your game that need improvement, define clear concepts and learn more effective ball control skills. The second half of the session we will go on the golf course to work on decision-making skills and address specific skill transfer situations. Session will conclude with take home exercises and a customized practice program that we will share with Kurt, Brent and Nick. Grab a friend and enjoy this unique experience together!

5 - 5 - 5 Performance Program

Imagine consistently posting scores 5 to 10 shots lower than you have ever imagined. You can do it with this unique performance program! This 2 day program will address 5 areas of your game that will lower your scores by 5 strokes within a 5 week period. Everyone knows it's the last 5 pounds that are the hardest to lose. Fortunately, in golf this is simply not true! You can drop at least 5 strokes off your scores by targeting shots inside of 50 yards. And that is exactly what we will do in this program. 5 shots include: 40 to 60 yard pitch shot, 30 yard high pitch shot, chip shots around the green, greenside bunkers and long distance putting. We will start out on the practice facility in the morning and move to the golf course in the afternoon. Don't worry, you won't be hitting golf balls for 5 hours! This will be a fun, relaxing learning environment. Participants will also receive take home notes and a 5 week practice plan.
