Bo’s Take On Golf

Bo’s philosophy on playing and instruction is built around the belief that golf is a serious but lighthearted game. The less pressure put on play the better, as anxiety or frustration certainly bring nothing good to the game or anyone’s play. So no matter what happens during these sessions, I will do my best to help you maintain a fun spirit regardless of the stakes.

Sign up for  golf lessons to help improve your golf game. Through the instruction process, you will learn everything from the basics of the game to how to correct the flight of your golf ball. Bo offers both private and indoor lessons for children and adults.
