Golf Lessons

Barbara teaches lessons at the Barton Creek Golf Academy, located in the picturesque Texas hill country.  The Academy has its own driving range, putting greens, pitching and chipping area, and sand trap, so you can work on all aspects of your game.  The Academy welcomes everyone at all skill levels.  There is no need to be a member of the club to take lessons from Barbara.

Lessons are available every day of the week, weather permitting.  Busy professionals enjoy lessons after work on long summer evenings.  Balls and clubs are provided.  In fact, those new to the game are encouraged to wait to buy clubs until they’ve taken a lesson and asked Barbara’s opinion on selecting clubs.

Individual lessons at $100 an hour are recommended for those who want to work on a particular problem.  Those interested in the fundamentals of golf are invited to bring a friend along and pay $50/hour per person.  An hour lesson for three people is $40 per person, and an hour lesson for four people is $30 per person.

Gift certificates for lessons are also available. They make a wonderful present for anyone looking to adopt a more active life style and to improve their game.

Scheduling a Lesson

The easiest way to schedule a lesson is to call Barbara directly on her cell phone at (512) 576-9244.  Or, send her an e-mail at  with “golf lesson” in the subject line.
