Golf At Home Tips
Not a problem! Go ahead and grab an umbrella, a cane, a short broom, a plastic vacuum hose attachment, or a anything else you can find that you can hold onto and learn to swing!
For groups under 20, we recommend all participants leaving their video and audio ON so our instructor(s) can give live feedback and people can ask questions live. For groups over 20, we recommend keeping video ON, and audio MUTED, and we’ll use the chat feature for flagging questions. In both cases, the pro(s) will be able to give live feedback to those with video on. If there are privacy restrictions for a certain group, our instructors also prepare for sessions with no interaction and they will just run through the program start to finish.
We recommend one hour for every class we do, with 30 minutes being the minimum class time we offer.
We recommend adding the “What to bring” section on the class list above into your invite email, or flier beforehand so people can come prepared.
We recommend having at least a clear 10’ long x 10’ wide x 9’ tall clear space to be able to swing freely.
500 is the normal max we host, if you have a larger group please let us know and we can discuss hosting platform requirements.

No moderator is needed, our pro(s) can fully handle the room by themselves. If you would like to have one of your moderators sit in on the session, they are more then welcome to.
