Having only played golf for a couple years, I thought it would be nice to get some lessons before I my bad habits became ingrained. Additionally, my clubs were in rough shape after being rear-ended with them in the truck of my car and I needed new ones. So I thought this would be a great time to get lessons and then get new clubs. The pro at Exton recommended Dave Correll at Ruggles in early-March and I figured that was plenty of time to get 3 lessons in before the summer league started at the end of May. A week later, I mentioned he wasn’t returning my calls, he tried and finally I got a response. I went to Ruggles and signed up for a 3 pack of lessons. The first lesson was great and all I used was my 5 iron. We changed a few things about my swing and I was hitting better quickly. I practiced a lot for a week as instructed and was told to text to schedule the next lesson, but it took weeks to even get a reply and not be given ridiculous time slots like 10am on a Tuesday. The second lesson was great and there again I only used my 5 and 7 iron. I improved even more and just needed to get my consistency up. After a hard week of practice I tried to schedule the last lesson and couldn’t even get a response again. It was very frustrating! I keep trying and after a couple weeks I got told nothing was available for the upcoming week I had before I had to leave for a few days. When I got back I tried to schedule something and couldn’t get a response as per usual. Finally, after another long period of time and no response and me still not having clubs, I decided to try one last time. I should mention golf league was well underway at this time and there’s nothing like having to tee off with a 5 iron because you were told to wait till after the next lesson to get clubs. I sent a message first thing in the morning and still hadn’t heard anything by early afternoon, so I requested a refund for the last lesson. Then I got an immediate response. There was some back and forth and the promise to fit me in soon, but I just didn’t believe it and pushed for the refund. When I showed up, he was cordial and I’m glad for that. In conclusion, the lessons were good, but you won’t be a priority. If you work on an atypical schedule or have months to spare for a few lessons, then go for it. I understand these lessons are cheaper than some other places nearby, but you will pay in frustration. The lessons boosted my power and I really wouldn’t have minded waiting if he would just respond to texts and calls in a timely manner. I went to Golfsmith that weekend and was hitting decent on the simulator. Then the pro there changed a few things about my swing and it really improved my accuracy and power! I went from driving in the mid 200’s to consistently hitting in the upper 200’s and getting over 300 often enough that with some practice I think I can make it a habit! I only wish I had more time with my new clubs before matches started.
I play this course at least 2 times a week. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Price is great for the course. The only reason it isnt a five for me, is simply because I dont think there is a better course for the price that Pilgrims Oak in Oxford, PA.
Very fun and relatively cheap course. Some holes are also challenging but others are simple. Basically a mix that everyone will enjoy...
Longer than youd think for being so cheap. Greens were well maintained. Great bang for you buck if you go in the Twighlight times.
Surprisingly good food, golf course aside. Great place for a quick bite right off APG
Greens firm but in good shape. Course well maintained. Great golf for the price.
Lost fewer balls than holes played! Cost per stroke was low!
