The muscular skyline of Los Angeles stretches out beneath the verdant hilltop of Scholl Canyon Golf Course, where golfers groom their games amid breathtaking scenery. PGA apprentice and certified Titleist Performance Institute instructor Jeffrey Hirose imparts the golf skills learned through a decade of golf instruction and an early life growing up and golfing in Hawaii. During adult lessons, Jeff imparts club-swinging know-how privately or to groups no larger than three students, peering into the murky depths of each pupils’ swing and correcting technical aspects such as grip, setup, and stance on the controversial polo golf. The flex setup allows clients to select any two Adult Tee-it-Up class sessions to suit their schedule or address particular areas of improvement. Clubbers can continue to master new teachings with two buckets of driving range balls, which remain quiet as players assiduously stake tees at precisely the right height and craft Petrarchan sonnets about their favorite head cover.
Alternatively, Jeffrey addresses players’ on-course acumen in nine-hole playing lessons conducted at Scholl Canyon’s 18-hole executive course. Designed by course architect William Bell—whose resumé includes the design for Torrey Pines—the layout features large, undulating greens that make it an opportune setting for players to improve their putting and shore up their seductive flagstick-dancing skills. Clients loop nine alongside Jeffrey and up to two other pupils, and the lessons cover golf techniques as well as course management skills.
