Andrew Kiger is an awesome instructor, I was a "self taught" golfer out having a good time with buddies, listening to whoever had a set of clubs and shooting over 110 every single round, 2 years ago I finally broke 100 shooting a 99 and was ecstatic. Obviously, I was now addicted. So I decided to take lessons at the... More

After looking at a dozen plus academies, we choose the Dana Rader Academy and was not disappointed. On course evaluation/lessons/coaching was invaluable as this is where you ultimately want to take your game. So they do spend every day with you on the course, then bring the groups back in for 'range/class room time.' Staff was knowledgeable and took an... More

The School was able to work out four hours of private lessons with Julie Cole on quite short notice. In the half day we spent with Julie she was able to give us excellent focused instruction on the full swing, pitching, and... More

She was articulate, patient, and took the course seriously. It's great for any level of golf and the instructors were able to give individualized attention to all... More

I took a 2 1/2 day class here (it was a few years ago) and went back for a one on one lesson. Both were excellent. There may be a wide range of skills in the class but it is well managed and a very good investment in your game.

Signed up for 3-day golf school at Dan Rader to learn fundamentals of the game and get some formal coaching. Tom Cannarozzo was a fantastic instructor who made the experience productive, relaxed and fun. Provided a lot of instruction over the three days, but I will be able to remember much of what I learned thanks to the notebook, online... More
