My wife and I took a lesson together last summer. It was a great deal, and I didn't feel like it robbed us of any time because the instructor would tell me something, then I would work on it and he would tell her something, and he did a good job.
The bad part of that, is that my wife knows I was there when she took her lesson and wants me to teach her all across the course. I don't mind trying to help her at the range, but I keep telling her I don't know any more than she does because I still slice a good bit myself and all I can do is repeat what I heard him say. But I hate doing it on the course. I am trying to get ready for my shot, and she gets mad if I don't come stand behind her and help her aim and get ready. I've threatened to quit playing with her if she does it, but usually by the back 9 she has gotten more comfortable and doesn't ask anymore.
We have fun playing together typically, but it is obnoxious to have to try to teach someone while they are on the tee box, especially when you don't know that much yourself.
The worst advice I've received is from my dad. He just started playing for the first time in his life last summer, and has had only one lesson that he didn't even take anything from, and he constantly gives me advice. He has kind of an ugly swing, although he can crush his driver at times when he does everything straight. But he will give me some tip about bending my left elbow back more because that helps him, as I am lining up my shot. Really irritating to get advice on the tee box, and especially when it's the opposite of what I'm trying to do.
