This year was my third time I attended the golf school. We attended with another couple who enjoy golf. Mel Sole's credentials are unparalleled. He taught me so much. This year Mel was recovering from a foot injury, so David Olberding stood in for him. David was unbelievable. Previously we attended the senior school while this year we did the... More

I just completed a 3-day golf school at the Mel Sole Golf School. Student/Teacher ratio was 3-1 for 2 days, and 2-1 for the last day. Each student received the customized attention needed. Video analysis was utilized to identify issues in the swing dynamic and to document the findings and the recommendations for improvement. Drills utilized were specific to the... More

This was my second time at the Mel Sole Golf School. The first time was in the early 2000's when I first started playing golf. Mel Sole helped me so much--especially with my short game. After several years of playing, I wanted to go back and see if he could help me again. The instruction was just as excellent, and... More

Just completed the Mel Sole 3-day golf school at Myrtle Beach. It was probably one of the most enjoyable and fun mini-vacations I've ever had. I went to improve my game. I came away with confidence I can now play at a higher level. Facilities were great, and can't say enough about the instructors and staff. Go......you won't regret it.... More

I had an excellent experience at my recent visit to Mel Sole Gold School. This is my second class at this school. Our instructor was David and he is an excellent teacher. He helps point out the faults in you swing and has a way of fixing it along with drills you can do at home. Video taping at school... More

The school is being taught at Tupelo Bay Golf Center now. The school walks you through all the basics and will help your game in all areas. Well worth the effort and help my game tremendous.

My husband and I attended 3 day golf school. Class begins with a video of swing and grip. Instruction and pratice follows on the driving range. After 3 hours of lessons, the video was reviewed. The video analysis was broken down so we were able to see areas of weakness. The next two days included correction of errors, instruction on... More

During the three half a days lessons with Lance I received a very good approach to the flaws of my game (not enough hip turn, follow through - avoid "chicken wing"), systematic approach, well done analysis, good understanding between the two of us. The results were surprisingly good. My shots with fairway woods became very stable again. Instead of many... More

Best golf teacher on the planet ! It was great to see how much my ten year old grandson learned. Excellent for both of us. Three hours for three days in a row well spent. The personal video for each student is a treasure. Jeanne

I have gone from teacher to teacher all my life and never really had the right fit, some much too confusing and others too simple. This was before I went to Mel Sole golf school and got a lesson from David Olberding. David is by far the best teacher you can go to anywhere in the United States. I am... More
