Fantastic experience with Ted, Eddie and Stefany. I’ve been golfing for 30 years and have had lessons a number of times but this was my first time at a golf school with intensive instruction over 3 days. On the first day I was a little bit unsure as some of the class members were brand new golfers just taking up the game. But I need not have worried - the combination of classroom instruction and individual attention on the range was just excellent. All of the instructors are so kind, easygoing and encouraging but at the same time they get right to the point with figuring out ways for you to improve. I had a good idea of where I needed to improve but the way to improve was what I really needed and this is where the feedback was so good.

On days 2 and 3, they incorporate highly valuable video analysis that you get to take with you for review at home. All facets of the game are covered in addition to the all-important mental aspect and a detailed booklet is provided that you are encouraged to add to with your own notes and reflections.

I signed up for the three day package which included instruction in the mornings, golf with cart in the afternoons, unlimited use of the very extensive range, on-site accommodation and breakfast and lunch daily. What an amazing value!! Stefany was very kind in making sure I was booked in for golf in the afternoons given that I was there in my own. Everyone in the class is treated as an individual and Ted, as the main instructor, was so skilful in the way he learned about all of us in the class so quickly and tailored his comments to our strengths and needs.

I will definitely return to Classic Swing Golf School and I highly recommend it to golfers of any and all levels of play and experience.

I want to improve my game so I went and got quality instruction. I am committing to what I learned in the lesson. It felt awkward at first but after a week of trying to implement what I was told, the game feels a little easier. We can all watch videos and try to copy what we think is correct but it takes another set of eyes to show us the subtleties of technique. Chipping and sand play were hurting me. I thought I could do them both with largely one club; my 56. NOT. I now use all my wedges but most importantly I continue to implement how to use my wedges. Where to put my weight, get comfortable with my new body position, focus on what I need to make the shot... I went to Classic Swing to improve my game, I continue to work on what I was taught, I believe that I am getting better and I have seen young talented people follow the same instruction at Classic Swing. If you want to play better golf, this is an excellent place to learn. I have taken lessons there and in a few weeks I will return for more instruction!

I attended the 3-day class and having never taken lessons before, didn't know what to expect. Ted opened my eyes to a few flaws and my swing is already improved, so much so that I won 3 tournaments right out of the gate in my local area. Still a ways to go, but at least I have tools and knowledge to sharpen my golf game. If you're wanting to improve your game, you won't regret the time and money spent.

My wife and I attended the 3 day school and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The pace of the sessions, between practical & theory, was just right for us and we left with good information without being overloaded.With the staff to pupil ratio 3:1 you get as much of the instructors time as you need and with the set up of each session, specific to parts of the game, you get ample supervised practice time. They are a friendly group and make you comfortable no matter what level of golfer you are. Highly recommended.

Attended the 3 Day School in June. Ted is top notch! He is able to break down your swing. Then give you drills with simple, easy to understand instruction to practice and work on. It's now October and with trusting, practicing and implementing everything Ted said in my instructional videos. It improved my golf game 100% and I ended up winning my golf league championship today. Thank you Ted and Classic Swing! Paul and I will be back in 2021 to learn more!!!

Excellent 3 day class. Ted and Eddie have been there for years and are excellent. They know the game and are very good at identifying any issues with your swing along with training tips on how to improve. I attended the 3 day class which also included 3 18 hole golf games. I have already recommended this to my friends and I will plan on returning next year for more advanced lessons. Jim

I have been to the 3-day school five times over the last 7 or 8 years. I keep coming back because the instruction is phenomenal. Ted Frick runs the school and all of his instructors teach using the same language, the same techniques, the same drills, etc. The course is extremely comprehensive and tailored to the group or individual. Each time I go, it's like a refresher and I always leave mastering a skill I either forgot or never fully developed. Ted focuses on the basics of the Classic Swing using modern training techniques and aids. He and his instructors don't try to change your swing, rather they teach you how you can improve your swing and explain to you why you're not hitting the ball as well as you should or want. Results speak for themselves from my perspective. When I first went to the school, I was a D/D- golfer on a scale of A - D. The groups I play with use the stableford system of scoring and I began needing to score 10 points, and now have to earn 22 points, so I have gone from a double bogey golfer + with a handicap or 24-28 to a handicap 14 - 18 which would make me a B + golfer on a scale of A - D.

My husband and I attended the 3 day fundamental school in 2009, came back for the scoring school, and are still seeing Ted Frick and Eddie Young for private lessons. Their ability to analyze your golf swing and then help you understand how to go about fixing your swing faults is excellent. They are able to explain complex golf concepts in simple language that makes it easy for anyone to understand. During every school or lesson, your swing is video taped and at the conclusion, you are given a video in which the instructors provide tips, drills, etc that will serve as a "refresher" for you once you return home. Every time we come to Myrtle Beach we get a lesson and it has helped both our golf games immensely. The instructors are very dedicated to helping you improve your golf game. I would highly recommend this golf school to golfers of all abilities.

Picking a golf school is not easy especially when your attending with your 26 year old daughter that has never played golf before. What Ted and his team accomplish is pretty amazing. In 3 days my daughter learn the history of golf, golf clubs and how to play golf from the ground up. Simple but incredibly effective techniques that will work for anyone at any stage of their game. I have been playing golf for 30 years and learned more in the last 3 days than since I began teaching myself 30 years ago!

Great staff! Steph...Eddie...Kyle..all great instructors and good people! It's like 1 big family working with you to help you improve.

Building on the 5 fundamentals of golf. Ted and team bring you through all golf scenarios in 3 days with personalized instruction. Video support is also a key part of the training and the comprehensive approach to teaching including the science behind the game made this an absolutely awesome experience!

My wife starts her 3 day tomorrow and I will be back down from Boston to see Ted and team for the next level of instruction soon..

Great value...great results and great people..thank you all very much!
