About this pro

I am a United States Teachers Federation Associate  Certified Teaching Professional.  I have been teaching for 16 years and been in the industry for 40.  The USGTF is the Leader in Golf Instruction.  The best way to see how my service stands out would be to read my reviews-my students are the ones that can tell you that best.  I am extremely passionate about this game and teaching-and I believe that when my student leaves the driving range, I want them to feel that they have gotten their money's worth and more. 

I love to see my students get excited when, as a team, we correct the swing flaw they came to me to fix. I love the people, the team work, the excitement , the friendships I make, and the satisfaction of a job well done.

  • JACK WHEELER

    I used to be a single digit handicap, but hadn't played in about 15 years until this year. I found that I couldn't break 90 and was frustrated, thinking about way too many things. Margo was amazing. She immediately identified some very simple things that needed tweaking and then built off of that with 2 simple swing keys. All of a sudden I was grooving shot after shot up and down the bag. Margo is very personable and communicates in a way that is very easy to pick up. I would highly recommend her!

  • Andy Welch

    Extremely personable experience. Her teaching style truly exhibits a care for the best outcome for the player.

  • Hayden Barnard

    Margo was very flexible doing a lesson with my son and I. Her tips helped us immediately. Highly recommend.

  • Robert Kohn

    Knows all the mechanics and stays positive with newer golfers!

FAQs


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

I am a believer that the golf swing needs to fit the individual and be kept as simple as possible. As your golf instructor, I will observe, teach and coach you so that you have fun learning and playing the game based on a realistic level of commitment, talent, and limitations. I believe in giving the student a small dose of information so you never feel that you cannot handle the new movements made in your golf swing. I want every student to walk away from my golf instruction with a positive experience as well as an understanding of cause and effect with the golf swing. You will understand what causes undesirable shots and what causes great shots!


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

I became a United States Golf Teaching Federation Associate Professional in 2004. I have over 40 years experience playing this game for fun and competitvely. I took the majority of my lessons from one of the greats in Richmond, the late Leo Steinbrecher. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My lessons are $50 for an hour.  I accept cash  and the only other expense you would incur is for range balls. 


How did you get started teaching?

I have been an avid golfer starting the game when I was 7. I played on the golf team at Longwood College.  I decided 16 years ago that I would pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a golf instructor.  So, I went to Myrtle Beach, and studied the classes at the USGTF Headquarters and graduated in May, 2004.


What types of students have you worked with?

I work with people of all ages in a one-on-one setting, a two-some setting, a group setting, clinic setting or camps.  They have various degrees of ability.
