Hey everyone, I am new to the forum.
I was looking for a good site for golf related ideas and questions and it led me here! I am happy to participate and lend an ear (and comment) to anyone that has anything to ask an old pro.
It is also a way for me to get to know the common golfing population, and what you all REALLY want from your teaching professionals. So I guess my question is, what is your stance on paying for private lessons from certified teaching professionals? No feeling will be hurt on my end - I am merely curious as to what I could do to help my academy thrive in the community I am in (a college town - USF). What might convince the skeptics out there to try out a lesson or two? Or attend a beginner's clinic?
I understand that the majority of player's are weekend, just for fun types. But what might motivate these higher handicappers to come out for clinics, etc?
Any ideas for marketing or community outreach are appreciated. And no, I am not trying to spam. If you want us professionals to do things different, now is the time to let us know.
