Rated one of the Top 25 Golf Schools in America 2008 by, Jim McLean Golf Schools teach students to golf within the parameters and limits of personal technique, rather than sending them on goose chases after a specific idealized swing. McLean’s certified instructors go through an intensive training process that includes at least one year of serving as a course assistant, completing a five-month-certification test, and personally taste-testing 15 varieties of fairway grass. Instructors customize each one- or two-hour lesson to best match students’ personal abilities, style, and physique, before developing a multidimensional training plan aided by an in-depth video swing examination. After the lesson, students test out tips, tricks, and prototype victory jigs—as well as a brand-new fitness stretch mat or hybrid club—as they take to the par 3 Legends Scoring Nine golf course and the center’s driving range, which earned accolades as one of Golf Range Magazine’s Top 100 Golf Ranges in America.

Jim McLean Golf Schools

After becoming an all-American at the University of Houston, qualifying for the U.S. Open twice, and making the cut at The Masters during his professional career, seasoned golf instructor Jim McLean has added one more accomplishment to his résumé: Jim McLean Golf Schools was touted as one of the country's top 25 golf schools in 2008 by Golf magazine.

Following Jim's innovative philosophy of biomechanics, a team of instructors—with levels ranging from certified, master, and lead master—teach the components of a successful golf swing, focusing on each player's physical capabilities and limitations and developing a tailored lesson plan. In order to become a Jim McLean golf instructor, pupils must pass a rigorous certification process that includes one to three years of teaching at the club, conducting their own extensive golf-swing-research projects, and learning to grow natural spikes out of their feet. During private lessons and clinics, golf gurus use 3-D graphical imaging and data analysis to provide instant feedback.

At Jim McLean Golf Schools, players hone their games with indoor and outdoor practice facilities that include a 50,000-square-foot short-game range, a lit driving range, and a practice bunker. The complex is also home to the Legends Scoring Nine course, which, along with the practice facilities, has been a training ground and putter-jousting arena. The addition of the SAM PuttLab only enhances the training that guests can receive, as the machine uses ultrasound to provide analysis on form and stroke to improve putting.

Customer Reviews

We had a great experience at this facility. Very hospitable staff and the private lesson was extremely beneficial. Would definitely recommend!

My experience with David has changed my game. With the technology at the facility combined with the simple approach he uses of working on one or two issues each session, my handicap has been cut in half. If you want to become a better golfer this is the teacher and the place to make that happen. Highly recommend!

I really cannot say enough about David. His approach is sound, consistent, and repeatable. Gave me drills to do at home that worked. In one lesson he shaved 10+ strokes off my game and gave me hope that I could shed "duffer" status and really play golf. He's patient and combines both technology (camera, video) with various tools to help you get better. This is an incredible value.
