I am a relatively new golfer, who needed help to improve my game – to be more consistent and lower my handicap. Dana Rader Golf School is a top-rated instructional facility. For 15 hours over three days, I worked in a small group with one instructor. While it was in a group, the instruction was customized to what I needed.... More

Small group instruction (no more than 4) and a good mix of practice stations and time on course with instructor. Instructors are passionate about golf, well-trained and good at what they do, teach. I went to the three day school. The day is well-paced and you have the opportunity to play as many holes as you wish after the day's... More

This was my first ever golf lesson and I was not disappointed. This class last for a total of six hours over two days. I thought the pricing was not bad ($200) for the six hours. We were broken out into groups of five or less. About an hour of the time is in the classroom looking at video and... More

After looking at a dozen plus academies, I choosed the Dana Rader Academy and was not disappointed. On course playing before all three days is helpful. My coach Juile was awesome. The staff is amazing. Ballantiyne golf course is great. They film your swing but don't try to break you down and rebuild it. Great 3 days. I would recommend... More

Excellent instruction especially fundamentals and short game. Instructors are awesome. Facilities are first rate and three day school is the perfect length.

On Sat. April 18, 2015 I had the opportunity to take the Dana Rader 3 hour short game school to improve my chipping, pitching, sand game and putting. There were 4 of us in the class and our instructor Steve Bogdanoff did an excellent job with each of us. I am a 12 handicap and belong to a local country... More

Andrew Kiger is an awesome instructor, I was a "self taught" golfer out having a good time with buddies, listening to whoever had a set of clubs and shooting over 110 every single round, 2 years ago I finally broke 100 shooting a 99 and was ecstatic. Obviously, I was now addicted. So I decided to take lessons at the... More

After looking at a dozen plus academies, we choose the Dana Rader Academy and was not disappointed. On course evaluation/lessons/coaching was invaluable as this is where you ultimately want to take your game. So they do spend every day with you on the course, then bring the groups back in for 'range/class room time.' Staff was knowledgeable and took an... More

We were in the Charlotte area on vacation from Arkansas (both 58 year-old women, pretty new to golf). The School was able to work out four hours of private lessons with Julie Cole on quite short notice. In the half day we spent with Julie she was able to give us excellent focused instruction on the full swing, pitching, and... More
