Keystone's PGA  Teaching Professionals offer private golf lessons and a variety of clinics and play opportunities throughout the summer. Golfers of all abilities - men, women and juniors - will find a golf professional with the experience to teach them how to get to that next level. After your golf lesson, practice your drives, approaches, chips and putts on our practice ranges, bunkers and putting greens at Keystone Ranch and The River Course.

Private Lessons

Private golf lessons are the quickest way to learn. The study is concentrated. The progress unbelievably fast. Because private lessons are tailored to your individual needs. Take either a 1/2-hour or 1-hour lesson with our golf professional. Playing lessons are also available upon request. Reservations are highly recommended.
