South Carolina Golf Schools

Even the best players have a coach or a teacher they can call when the swing gets off-track. So if you are ready to go back to school, golf school that is, you’ve come to the right place.
Welcome to premier golf, South Carolina-style. Men and women golf schools today trend toward a more personalized teaching experience. Throw in a video lesson, a couple rounds of golf and you are on your way. And figure the cost for three- to four-days at most South Carolina golf schools to range from $300 to $3,000, depending upon the time of the year, where you stay and how much golf you can really play.
The first step in determining which of the many South Carolina golf schools is right for you is to research, ask questions and feel free to phone an instructor or two; second tip, know your goals going in (i.e., break 100, meet new friends, visit the beach or qualify for the Tour); and finally, check and compare your budget, as some have hidden greens fees added or after-school hours playing lessons.
Between Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head Island there are more than 30 South Carolina golf schools, including those that are exclusively junior and women golf schools. Plan a ladies’ golf vacation!
