Golf Lessons and Golf Instruction


John_Rose_Golf_LessonThe best golf lessons teach strong repeatable mechanics and sensible golf course management. My golf lessons are simple. I promote sound grip, athletic posture, correct ball position and good alignment. I help you learn to be your own coach by teaching cause and effect relationships within your golf swing.

When your golf fundamentals are consistent and you’ve mastered a repeatable swing, the next golf lesson is golf course management. Knowing whether to hit a long shot or just get back to the fairway can make all the difference in enjoying the game.

Golf Lessons are taught on the range at the Links of Hiawatha golf course, 2350 Marshland Rd, Apalachin, NY. Contact John Rose to schedule a lesson 607-426-9207


I offer golf lessons to a wide variety of people from first-time-golfers, to those trying to break 90 and golfers wishing to cut their handicap in half. Golf instruction begins with a student interview and evaluation, discussing goals and objectives. Sessions are tailored to the individual’s needs.

John_Rose_Golf_InstructionGolf Lesson Series

The golf swing is a series of cause and effect relationships. We can only superficially address one issue that might be causing an undesirable outcome in a single golf lesson. In a series we can dig into the root of the issue and focus on real improvement.

Beginner Golf Lesson Series

  • short game with full swing review
  • etiquette and golf course management

Advanced Golf Lesson Series

  • goals and a swing analysis

Students have their golf swing analyzed using the V1 Professional Coaching System, the most advanced video golf instruction device on the market. Before and after footage of your golf swing is compared to PGA TOUR players. The lesson is available to view online for review.


For beginner to intermediate golfers, group golf lessons are an economical way to get instruction and fun to do with a group of friends, your spouse or family. Sessions are tailored to be most effective where groups have a similar skill level.
