    Jim is a true professional. I have been attending regular lessons for almost a year now and have seen vast improvements in my game. My confidence in my swing is at an all time high. I would highly recommend Jim to any player looking to improve their game (at any handicap).

    I began lessons with Jim Schade when I was 80 years old. I'd never played golf before. When you have 5 children they do all and Mom cheers, washes clothes, feeds and supports through the years. The support never ends and Mom goes back to school and has a job away from home. It was time to see if Mom had the ability to play golf. I'm still working at 83 and still taking golf lessons from Jim. He is the right teacher. Always on task, corrections are positive support, always fun to be around, lessons end with something you do that is really good, the time flies by. I have been very lucky to know and work with Jim Schade. I have learned I can play golf. It's a great addition to my life. I hate to miss lessons. One of the best teachers in my life. I should know teaching as I taught for 17 years. H'e the best!

    Jim is a great communicator, he helped me to understand and visualize a good golf swing. His style is relaxed yet very efficient. I am more consistent and my scores have come down. I highly recommend Jim.

    Keeps it simple focuses on basics (what I need!) and proves you can teach old dogs (I am 65!) new tricks! Jim is the best! My game has never been better thanks to Jim! Wish I could retire and take more lessons and play/practice more His help with my short game has been incredible!
