This is the second time my husband and I have attended the three day golf school and were so excited by our improvements that we signed up for another 3 day class! We hadn't played golf in 10 years and badly needed lessons. David Olberding was our amazing golf instructor. His experience, patience and style of teaching made it easy to pick up the correct way to swing, and not chicken wing. His demeanor made everyone in class feel comfortable and ready to learn. We're both back to completely enjoying our golf game and have more confidence being on the course. Thanks Mel and David!

It is a comprehensive golf lesson when done over three days, three hours each day. Mel is professional and has some great stories to share. He individualizes the course to fit the student's golf ability. I learned about myself, my sisters, and my golf game. It was fun, challenging, and filled with tips for a more successful game.

I attended the 3-day golf school taught by Mel Sole, and it was a fantastic experience! It was fun, informative, instructive, and an over-all enjoyable experience. Mel has a wonderful teaching style, and reinforces the good as he works on those areas that are weak. I never felt like the mediocre golfer I am, and came home feeling inspired and motivated to practice the drills he teaches and to improve my game. I highly encourage golfers at any level to take the time to attend this school. You won't be sorry!

If you like "chicken wings" do not come to Mel's school! He is the expert on removing chicken wings from your stroke! After three days of hands on lessons, our strokes and form were significantly improved. Book in advance to have Mel as instructor for three days, and add on 18 hole options for afternoon play.
The accommodations and location were spot on. Mel customized instruction for each of us. The video lessons will be an excellent resource for after we return home.
PS Lots of local restaurants have chicken wings if you still want them.

Mel is a true professional in every sense. I have been golfing for several years with all of my mechanics off. From the beginning, Mel took the time to straighten my golf swing out to videoing everything I was taught including practice drills with irons, pitch shots, bunkers, putting etc.
It was a great experience with excellent coaching and feedback. I would highly recommend Mel Sole school of golfing to all levels.

I attended the 3 day golf school with Mel Sole as a beginner and it was an incredible experience. I went with two other members of my family who were much more experienced than me, but Mel Sole was able to individually coach every player based on their skill level. The guided videos have been extremely helpful in my continued progress. I would recommend Mel Sole's golf school to anyone!

Just finished a 3-day golf school with David at Mel Sole's. Great experience! The video analysis of my swing was so helpful and I could really see what I was doing wrong as well as what I was doing right. So appreciative of the suggestions for improvement to take my game to the next level. As a 60 some-year-old beginner with some bad habits, this school was extremely helpful. If you want to improve your game do it! It is so worth it!

Scheduled three private one-hour lessons with David, which was a game-changer.

He used a great mix of physical application on the range with video instruction to show me where my swing was off and how to fix it. Also some great putting tips.

Each day we built upon what was learned the previous day and it couldn't have been more worth the money ($100/session) would highly recommend to anyone looking for instruction on the proper golf swing technique.

We just spent 3 days at Mel Sole’s golf school and it was a great experience for my athletic experienced golfing husband and myself a true beginner. Dave was our instructor and he was patient, kind and encouraging to me and provided helpful tips to my husband. We also enjoyed our stay in the condo on Pawley’s Plantation. The course covered so many aspects of golf and it was great to have the video to see the improvement we all made. I would highly recommend this course to the beginners and to anyone who wants to improve their game.
