    Carlson lesson schedule is flexible and he spends quality time during his lesson to go the extra mile with understanding. He also gives detailed practice advice to work on before the next lesson. I highly recommend Carlson.

    Rich is very thorough and if you apply what he shows & teaches you your gold game will improve tremendously. Rich has great knowledge and knows how to show you what you need to change or correct to improve your golf swing and your golf results.

    We started with Mr. Carlson since Michelle was about 2 years old. She made to the Varsity Golf team since her freshman year. Mr. Carlson is encouraging and knowledgeable. We appreciate all his patience!

  • Alec Small

    Great communication and flexibility with lessons. Went over all the types of swings and clubs. As someone who never played before, I’m now able to play with my buddies who have been playing for years! Highly recommend!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I usually meet the client and have a complimentary evaluation, (mini lesson). If they have some experience, I'll have them hit some balls and make suggestions. This way we can see if we can work together.

A brand new person will get a 30 minute free lesson and will learn some of the basics. Again, this will see if we can work together.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was in the PGA apprentice program.

I was trained at the Titleist Performance Institute and was certified TPI Level 1.

I was Director of Instruction at Arcadia Golf Course for 15 years.
