Doug's free clinic on Mondays are a great introduction to his teaching style---relaxed, uncomplicated, and fun. My goal last winter was to take my game to the next level, and thanks to Doug's Short Game clinics and a few private lessons with him, I've lowered my handicap and am enjoying golf more than ever!
More than anything, I appreciate the practical advise he gave me on how to relax before taking every shot,
On our way to Florida over Spring Break this year we stopped in Hilton Head for the weekend to prepare and play golf for the first time after too long of a winter break. Doug was great to work with as he spent time with each of my players individually video taping their swing and giving them little things to work on as we began our preseason practice.
The same should be said for other professions giving golf tips. We took up golf a little less than one year ago. In that time, there was plenty of advice given, whether it was from a co-worker, family friend, or even a barber. Our experience was that in a couple of hours with Doug, our game - fundamentals, mechanics, and overall grasp of the game - improved immensely! Clearly Doug has a wealth of golf knowledge and has been doing this for many years. The best way to explain his teaching style is relaxed, adaptive, rooted in the fundamentals, and fun. He is like the college professor with the PhD and the course textbook he wrote himself, who can actually communicate with the undergrad - thus tailoring his delivery to where you are in your golf journey. After spending the last year playing round after round to improve, it was clear that I learned more in my few hours with Doug than a whole year of playing and listening to the advice and tips of everyone else. Do yourself, your sanity, and your game a favor - take a round off and invest that time and money into lessons with Doug. Remember, while a Golf Pro may not give a good haircut, they are in fact masters of their profession.
I did one private lesson and the 3 hour group putting, short game, and full swing instruction with Doug. He was awesome! I would recommend either the private or group lessons. I visit South Carolina every May and will now do lessons with Doug every year. It is easy to see that he really cares and is great at articulating the concepts that he wants you to adopt in your swing.
Doug's lessons have taught me that golf is more than a swing. His unique and illustrative communication skills focus on applying your athletic ability against the games key fundamentals that allow you to master the basics. Since taking lessons with Doug , the confidence in my technique has allowed me to improve in all aspects of my game and win my club championship. When you are done taking a lesson with Doug you will be able to see your shots, feel your shots, and trust your ability to execute.
Having played golf for forty years, I was having a terrible time with a vicious, peristant hook. Doug was able to identify the basic problems and ,by the end of the lesson, i was hitting good shots and had an understanding of fundamentals I needed to remember and practice. As an added bonus, Doug made the experience enjoyable. I would recommend Doug to any golfer wanting to improve his/her golf game.
It has been 1 year since I have taken a golf lesson. Doug Weaver was very good yet it was a simple lesson. I would recommend him
This was our first golf lesson and we had a great time!
We fully enjoyed our 'back to the basics' lessons with Doug Weaver and immediately signed up for the on course short game clinic for later in the week. We took away some real practical tactics and game improvements - customized to our abilities. Thanks Doug!! (Also enjoyed the beautiful course at Palmetto Dunes.
Like everyone else on this page, I love the game of golf -- finally, again. Over the past two years that hasn't been the case. A serious flaw in my game left me anxious and confused. Nothing I did fixed it -- not extensive reading and research, not watching golf videos and not taking lessons from pros who thought they had it figured out if I just turned this way, adjusted my backswing that way or added a new convoluted swing thought.
While their dad's are playing in the Heritage Tournament, The Heritage Kids Club lets the children enjoy a group lesson with Doug and his crew at the Palmetto Dunes Robert Trent Jones course. The children and volunteers always enjoy this visit and you never know... one may be on the PGA tour in the next 15 years!
For our way of saying thanks to our customers, we invited several clients and potential clients to Doug Weaver's group golf lesson. Doug did a masterful job of teaching and kept it fun for everyone. I am still hearing about how Doug's tips are helping them play the best golf they have played in years. What a great experience!!!! Thanks Doug and we will definitely do this again.
I took my first golf lessons from Doug Weaver last August after spending several years trying to figure it out for myself. It is a new game to me now. When I remember and apply Doug's simple advice, at the range or on the course, I strike the ball well. I am earning back the money I spent on lessons in skins games because my friends are just starting to catch on that I am not the same hack! See you in August.
I've been taking golf lessons for several years but I can honestly say that the Ladies Only clinic I did with Doug Weaver helped me more than anything. I'm delighted to have learned so much with personal attention over a three hour period. Many thanks to Doug. Can't wait to come back and do it again. Then he can see the improvement to my game.
Every Monday from 4 to 5, a very informative and entertaining clinic done by Doug Weaver, former PGA player and head of instruction.. Make sure he tells the story of the 4 holes in one at the US Open at Oak Hill!
