My 10 year old son is showing an interest in golf and i have not played in a number of years and was not very good when i played. I would like to start taking some lessons and get my game decent where i can play with him over the next few years and hopefully both of our games improve. I am in the Baton Rouge area and looking for lessons/suggestions for myself ? I can probably commit to once a week lessons to get started and buy some new clubs if needed.

You shouldn’t get a lesson every week when you start from scratch. Get a lesson and work on that for a couple of weeks. Range time is what you need, then go back for another lesson

So someone downvoted the OP when he’s looking for advice to get back into golf on a golf board. Then someone downvoted Nathan. Either someone doesn’t know what they’re talking about or they’re just a douche. Nathan is a great coach, cares about his students success and knows the game like nobody’s business. I would highly recommend him.

Being that your high end certified instructors are max $150, that’s wayyyy too high.

More power to him if people are paying that.

Nobody is saying he is not a great coach, but being certified by the PGA is what adds the value. The max I know charges $150 and they teach mini tour and pga professionals.

Paxton and James are around $150 if ur members and around $200 non members. Those are two of the best instructors in the state along with Parker. I know Parker charges high but he has a ton of experience and all the bells and whistles.

I don't know who this is or if this is first or last names.

James Leitz is one of the most decorated (again this year) instructor in the state and hes $150 for members and I think $175 for non members at TCC

Rob Noel is up there as well and he's the same price.

I don't think $140 is absurd at all for a good communicator compared to what some of the top coaches in the state charge.

Yes that James.

Being that there is no certification and he’s just starting out in instruction, I’ll have to disagree.

But like I said, if people are paying that good for him. I have nothing against him. Played golf many times with him.

Golf lessons are expensive in BR. I’ve used David Gary at the Wetlands in Lafayette. About 15 years ago he got me from hitting mid 90’s to high 70’s in a span of a couple of months. Trying to get back to that and left a voicemail Friday to schedule a lesson with him. He charges $90 for an hour lesson. He’s a PGA Pro.
