Private lessons, moving at the student’s pace and focusing on the aspects of the game they want to hone, expand the skills of those who have a basic knowledge of the game. Alternatively, the half-day golf school furnishes golfer and teacher with ample time to review the player’s entire game. With a 6-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, lessons start with chipping, pitching, putting, and bunker play before moving to full shots with irons, hybrids, and woods. Then after three hours of practice students take on a two-hour 9-hole playing lesson. See the class page for available dates.
Gil Davis Golf
Former instructor at the East Bank Club and mentee of the renowned Hank Haney, Gil Davis has straightened the swings of Chicago golfers for more than a decade. Gil’s playing philosophy— that establishing a solid foundation of fundamentals can prevent many bad habits and frustrations—focuses on the basics. His instruction centers on developing proper grip, posture, and alignment from the get-go while tying in the strategic skill of course management. This planning mindset—often saved until later in the student’s advancement—keeps players focused on the larger picture in order to solve course conundrums, such as sand traps and the riddles of hole-guarding trolls. Instruction takes place at the practice facilities of Marquette Park, where grass tee boxes and 9,000 square feet of putting and chipping greens re-create common course conditions for focused practice.
