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

I was looking to renew an interest in golf and this three day course did just that. Truly great instructors, beautiful facility, and well worth my time. I had Molly as an instructor. She was articulate, patient, and took the course seriously. It's great for any level of golf and the instructors were able to give individualized attention to all... More

I took a 2 1/2 day class here (it was a few years ago) and went back for a one on one lesson. Both were excellent. There may be a wide range of skills in the class but it is well managed and a very good investment in your game.

Signed up for 3-day golf school at Dan Rader to learn fundamentals of the game and get some formal coaching. Tom Cannarozzo was a fantastic instructor who made the experience productive, relaxed and fun. Provided a lot of instruction over the three days, but I will be able to remember much of what I learned thanks to the notebook, online... More

For my husbands and my 5th anniversary we decided to take lessons at the golf school. Neither one of us are athletic at all!!! We booked with Molly. She was excellent. Very patient and wonderful at explaining the way to hold and swing a club. We had a great time and the equipment seemed brand new. The first day we... More

They have excellent facilities and even more important I have found a great coach in my instructor Tom Cannarozzo. I have some... More

A good friend and I just returned from the 3-day Dana Rader golf school. This was the 2nd golf school we attended in the last 2 years. I have also taken golf lessons (individual and group) from other instructors in the Washington DC area. By far....Dana Rader's school provided the absolute best level of instruction and instructors. A lot of... More

I recently attended the 3 day clinic, as a golf beginner I was a bit intimidated by going to a school of 18 people but they broke us up into groups of 4 each group with an instructor I am guessing by skill level. We moved from the long game to the short game seamlessly. They do video analysis of... More

I contacted The Dana Rader school in the summer of 2012 looking for lessons to take my game to the next level. I’m a life time golfer, beginning at an early age but had stalled in my progression the last few years. I had some experience with professional lessons before, but I did not obtain the results I was looking... More

I came to the Dana Rader Golf School because I was becoming more and more frustrated with my game. My instructor Tom Cannarozza quickly identified some bad habits that I had developed in my allignment and swing plane. Within one hour, Tom had transformed my low slice into a high draw....I was amazed. Tom has the abilty to help you... More
