The first day of lessons will commence on the practice green (except for Mighty Mites, which is always on the far end of the driving range). You do not need to check in with the pro shop prior to the lessons.

5. What if I have a conflict and cannot make one of the lessons?
If you need to miss a lesson in a series, please contact the pro shop as soon as possible. One of our professionals will contact you and work out another lesson for you to attend that will be covering the same topics as the one you will miss.
