At Sand Valley, our firm and fast fescue fairways require the same expertise and comfort level with using the ground to your advantage. Learn the art of Links Golf shot-making on any of our three golf courses. Links Lessons can be scheduled at a convenient time for groups of 2 or more golfers and can cover a variety of golf shots including playing golf in the wind, putting, chipping, pitching, bump and run shots and bunkers - covering every facet of how to play your best links golf.

Hickory Lessons
