Golf Instruction and Lessons

University Ridge offers a variety of different group instruction classes throughout the golfing season to meet the needs of all types of golfers. The group size in all classes never exceeds five students in order to give each student enough personal time with the instructor. All group lessons are conducted on our newly remodeled practice facility which has a separate tee for instruction, a chipping green, and practice bunkers. Many of the sessions also include on-course instruction. If the class times don't work out for your schedule you may set up a private class for the same price for three or more people.
