Three day golf school taught by an experienced instructor was excellent. Class size ranged between 2 and 4 students with plenty of individualized instruction. This would be a fabulous school for families or Couples with varying golf abilities. Experts and novices alike would benefit from Mel's individualized attention and use of video analysis and individually prescribed drills to improve their... More

After 4 trips over the last years, I still want to return for more! My son and I took a chance on Mel Sole as golfers desiring to get better. We have achieved more than getting better -- we have made a lifelong friend in Mel. He is super knowledgeable. More than that he is a ton of fun. If... More

I was at best a reluctant beginner at golf when I attended Mel Sole's golf school with my partner for three days of instruction. Mel completely changed my mind about this game. He is an amazing teacher in every way. Not only does he know his craft (and teaches it with humour and graciousness) but I found him to be... More

Mel works with where you are in your golf game. He doesn't see everyone as "cookie cutter". What is right for the next person may not be right for you and Mel sees that. Would definitely recommend Mel and plan on a refresher course as well.

This was our first time at Mel's Golf School. Our friends were very complimentary about Mels school, experiencing the school exceeded our expectations. This 3 day training taught us how to practice golf, apply what we learned as well as course management. It was amazing learning how to shave points off our game by learning techniques of sand, chipping, pitching... More

This was the third year in a row we've taken the 3-day school and again it was excellent. Mel is a gifted teacher with a passion for the game and a love of people. We are so glad to have found such good instruction. His knowledge of the game is both broad and deep and he shares it with enthusiasm.... More

My wife and I attended the Mel Sole golf school this past April. We had also attended the school last year, so this time we enrolled in the alumni program with Mel Sole. It was a great experience, and really helped both of our games. Mel can quickly spot flaws in a student's swing, and he prescribes very effective drills... More

I returned to the Mel Sole School of Golf for the second time this year. I took the senior program. And I brought another couple with me and my wife. It was outstanding. I give it a 10 out of 5. Mel is a great teacher, patient and knowledgeable. I'm hitting the ball really well again. Mel has helped me... More

I went to Mel Sole Golf School in March for a three day lesson with David Olberding, to follow up on a weekend of lessons about a year ago. I am a beginner. This time we focused in particular on turning my body more when I swing, as well as making effective contact with the ball. David has a lot... More
