Golf Lessons in Tampa Florida

By Bill Herrfeldt

Every golfer needs lessons from time to time to correct mistakes in a swing and to improve scores. So there's no better time to take one than while your golf group or golfing members of your family are on vacation in Tampa, Florida. Since golf is a favorite pastime for so many residents and visitors, Tampa boasts having more knowledgeable golf professionals who can help you improve your game than most other cities in the country.

Golf Made Simple

Personalization is what sets Golf Made Simple apart from many other programs. Simply, the instructors here help you decide what your golf swing should feel like, then make corrections to your swing that are more repeatable. The theory is that you should be able to take those improvements onto the golf course. Recently, it has moved its facilities to The Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club, home to four world-class golf courses and a 10-acre practice facility. You will receive instruction for about four hours followed by a nine-hole playing lesson with a certified instructor.
