I finished my 2-day school with David Olberding at Grande Dunes with much more insight and knowledge about my swing and short game mechanics than I would have gathered any other way. David's teaching ability, combined with high resolution, high speed video capture and annotation, made things easily understood and provided me a great record of where I started and... More

I arrived with no expectations however, I was extremely pleased with my progress courtesy of David Olberding's experience and teaching technique. The use of video to capture my previously unseen flaws greatly helped in my understanding of what I needed to do. The swing drills and the practice was carefully critiqued by David and at the end of each day's... More

My nephew and I attended the 3 day school. I am a beginner and my nephew has been playing golf for several years. This was the best experience by far that both of us have had. I have had several lessons this summer and it could not compare to the three day golf school that I attended.

My wife and I were fortunate enough to have David Olberding to ourselves for our 3-day class. David is a professional in every way and his ability to identify issues/problems/opportunities for improvement and walk the student through a series of practical drills to quickly address and remedy are unmatched. David took the time to thoroughly explain the "current state" and... More

I attended the 3 day school over the Labor Day weekend. David Olberding is a great instructor and was very flexible with the times I was able to come to class. In the first hour I learned what to do to correct my swing from hitting behind the ball all the time. We progressed over the next two days with... More

This was far and away the best money I have ever spent on golf. In a short time, David Olberding showed me my golf swing, helped me to see how to correct a lifelong error, and gave me an easy to understand exercise which fixed the majority of my flaws I would recommend this instructor, and this school to EVERYONE,...

Enrolled in the 3-day Mel Sole Golf School program at the Grande Dunes Resort Course with my father. We were both in need of some serious instruction, so we were lucky to be able to share James, our instructor, just between the two of us. He was very engaged and informative as he helped us work on every part of... More

My wife and I took the three day seniors course at Grande Dunes. She's a beginner and I'm a bit more experienced (like a lot). Still, a great experience for us both, including superb instruction for each of us, personal, detailed attention, video analysis, reasonable price, nice area, great facilities. Staff easy to work with and flexible when possible. Good... More
