“You’re better than you think you are. To make the clubhead travel 26 feet on an arc and catch the ball on the clubface is a small miracle. Beating yourself up over the imperfections within that miracle is kind of ridiculous. Never wait to be good to have fun, and never lose sight of the fact you’re doing something pretty amazing.”

– Grant Rogers, Director of Instruction Emeritus

Golf Lesson Comparison


Private individual golf lessons are available and should be scheduled prior to your arrival. Instruction takes place at our 55-acre Practice Center and can be tailored to any facet of the game you’d like to focus and improve upon.

Golf Lessons

Golf lessons for your group of two or more is a great way to learn key fundamentals in a welcoming social environment. With multiple targets, a wide variety of bunkers and a 1-acre putting green, the Practice Center will test every shot in your group’s bag while one of our teaching professionals helps reinforce the goals of your group lesson.


For many golfers, taking what they have practiced and learned at the range can be tough to translate on the golf course. Playing lessons help with this challenge as well as instructing on overall course management skills. These popular 18-hole, 9-hole, or Par-3 course lessons are designed to be instructive and fun and will help golfers of all ability levels play their best golf on our links courses.


Most of our guests have minimal links golf experience. Learning the art of shot-making, playing the bounce, and how wind dictates everything on our six links courses is crucial to embracing the Bandon experience. Links Lessons can be scheduled at a convenient time for groups of 2 or more golfers at the Practice Center and will explore a variety of golf shots including playing golf in the wind, putting, chipping, pitching, bump and run shots and bunkers – covering every facet of how to play your best links golf.

Golf Lessons

If you have never played golf or haven’t played recently then schedule a beginning golf lesson. These classic lessons are a great way for individuals and groups to learn a few of the most important golf fundamentals. Golf equipment is provided by request, at no charge.
