From his post at the stately Continental Golf Course, PGA-certified instructor Eddie Kilthau draws from 35 years of experience to impart swing-honing advice to aspiring aces. Eddie has earned six lifetime hole-in-ones and the distinction of competing in the U.S. Open. Neophytes can jump-start their game with five one-hour group clinics, where classes no larger than five pupils meet once a week to learn the basics of launching balls from tees toward tiny, manmade rabbit holes. More nuanced instruction can be gleaned from a 9-hole playing lesson at Continental Golf Course’s executive layout, where Eddie counsels players about course management, club selection, and how to tell if sand bunkers harbor buried treasure.
During three, one-hour private lessons, Eddie analyzes swings while video-analysis technology further dissects every minute motion, helping players unearth the mechanical root cause behind every errant swing or rebellious golf cart. This option also includes lunch at Mulligan’s Grill, where players can replenish depleted bodies or unresponsive 9 irons with grill fare including breakfast burritos, club sandwiches, 1/3-pound burgers, and crispy chicken salads, all served with chips or fries and a draft beer, glass of wine, or non-alcoholic drink (lunch prices range from $8–$15). Finally, players can hone their game around the green with four short-game lessons, which focus on chipping, bunker play, and putting by way of telekinesis.
