“I can’t believe how my form has improved”

"I LOVE those photos!  I can’t believe how my form has improved (thanks to your instruction!!). I tell everyone I play with – give Lainey 30 minutes twice a week and you’ll knock 10 off your score in no time!! Pleased to report that my 5 hybrid  is now being actively used! See you soon"


“You would be well served to have her as your coach.”

"I have played the game of golf for over half a century. During that time I have taken hundreds of lessons from too many teachers to count. The result, my handicap remained the same. Then I met Melainey. After six lessons my handicap is down five strokes. Melainey has a clear vision of the golf swing. She communicates it clearly and understandably. You would be well served to have her as your coach."


“You took me to a level I never thought I could achieve”

"Dear Melainey, I can't thank you enough for the meaningful session we had on Tuesday.  You took me to a level I never thought I could achieve and I have been looking for, for many years."


“She is patient and can communicate”

"I am a brand new golfer and Melaney has helped me understand so much about the game. She is patient and can communicate what I need to do and to help build confidence! I highly recommend her!"


“Lainey is a superb golf teacher with a pleasant demeanor.”

"Lainey is a superb golf teacher with a pleasant demeanor. She can break down your swing flaw(s) in an easy-to-understand way while demonstrating the correct move. The photos, annotated with constructive comments that she sends you after the lesson are a real bonus."


“She helped me improve my swing”

"She helped me improve my swing which resulted in more consistent contact with the ball and more confidence in my game - both were goals that I shared up front with her! The pictures I was sent after practice reiterating correct form were VERY helpful to reference out on the range."

Teaching Philosophy

Melainey's approach in teaching golf is to guide the student toward functionality, in order to achieve playability and enjoyment.  She uses a systematic approach that is simple enough for the beginning golfer and sophisticated enough for the most experienced player. The goal is for each student to have an effective swing with a repeatable result that makes sense for them.  Students will learn how to problem-solve and reach their goals at their own pace.  Golf should be fun and enjoyable for all skill levels.
