Burkstaller is pretty good. Like mentioned, he's at Oaks at Sherwood now.
However, if you've never swung before, spend some time at the range focusing on grip and swing plane. If you have a video camera, you can pretty much self diagnose at first. It's usually pretty obvious. Most pros for beginners will just focus on grip and basic fundamentals.
Once you play some and can make decent contact, then get a lesson. That'll help point out the non-obvious issues. Of course a pro could help too, but IMO a waste of money for what they're gonna tell you.

Definitely save some dough on lessons at first. Go to the Oaks at Sherwood's range and hit some balls. There is a good chance that there will be others out there that you can meet and probably play a round with as well.
