“Incredible instructor with great knowledge of the game.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We knew David from Atlanta Ga because he was the one who taught my then 7-year old daughter her swing and he helped to develop one of the best swings you'll see in anyone much less a child. David moved to Myrtle Beach and we were left struggling to find an instructor to replace him. We stopped by to get lessons from him on the way to the USKids World Championships in Pinehurst and it was the best choice we made. Sara was struggling with her swing at the time and David helped her to regain her mechanics and confidence and his instruction was one of the pivotal reasons for her 2nd place finish in the World Championships (we were merely hoping for a top five finish). He is truly a class act, we have been through 7 instructors since he left Atlanta because we cannot find anyone like him. You cannot find anyone who cares as much as he does and knows as much as he does about improving your golf swing.

“Dave and the Mel Sole teaching approach are amazing!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Dave was excellent, I learned a ton. I'm a beginner, and now feel like I could go out on the course and not be an embarrassment - actually hit some good shots! I've still got a ways to go, but Dave brought me very, very far - much farther than I thought possible over the days I was with him. He was spot on in terms of how to instruct me, and what to instruct me to do. Also, the front-office staff was very helpful, too, when I did the booking. They worked with my schedule (e.g., needed one lesson to be in the afternoon because of flight arrival time), and gave me a reasonable price, too. Anway, I would add that Dave was such a nice guy that my brother and I (also a beginner trying to learn how to play) enjoyed chatting with him a lot and went to lunch with him. It's great that he and the school are able to use the video and other equipment to teach beginners / near beginners as well as people who have been playing a long time.

I purchased the one day school for my husband as a gift. He spoke very highly of the instructor and was very pleased with the instruction that he received. We highly recommend them!

“Great Golf School”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Mel Sole makes the golf learning Experience fun and at the same time an opportunity to improve your game. His techniques are specialized to each individual. I cannot wait to to attend the golf school again. It is very affordable and Pawley's Island is a great golf course to play.
