Choosing your golf instructor is almost like choosing your doctor! You need to do some research, you need to be aware of their teaching philosophies and methods. It is a great idea to find an instructor that teaches full-time. In other words, they only teach golf and have no other responsibilities at the facility. Often times, if your instructor has other duties within the golf facility such as food and beverage or staffing, their mind may be in other places other than teaching you how to play golf.
