Frequently Asked Questions


1 Packing and Weather

Weather is important to consider when deciding what to pack for a golf school. We want you to have the right gear when you need it most. Whether you’re golfing on the beaches of Florida, staring at the base of Pike’s Peak in Colorado, or finessing your golf shots in the desert, you never know what Mother Nature might bring.

Please check the weather of your destination before you leave and be sure to be prepared for all possible conditions with the right gear – this includes bringing removable layers, sun protection, rain gear, vest or wind jacket. 

2 Where can I find the dates for the golf school?

All of our schools are private and customized specifically for you. Since we specialize in small groups, 1-on-1, or 2-on-1 instruction, you get to pick the dates that work best for you!

You let us know what dates and which locations work best for your schedule, and we will take care of the rest!

3 Ready to book?

To reserve your spot at our golf school, simply give us a call at 877-4-BIRDGO and speak with one of our booking specialists. In order to finalize your booking, a deposit of $500 per golfer is required at the time of booking.

If you make a reservation within 30 days of the school start date, the full balance will be due at the time of booking. Once your booking is confirmed and your lodging is secured, we will send you an email with important information about your school, as well as a player profile to be filled out and returned to us.

The night before the first day of school, your instructor will contact you with the meeting location and time, usually at 9:30am in the pro shop.

4 What if I have to cancel my trip?

We understand things happen in life and sometimes you have to cancel or change your golf school. We make it easy as possible to change your dates, location, or even instructor based on what is best for you!

Have a question? Just give us a call, 877-4-BIRDGO.


5 Do I need to tip my instructor?

A tip is not expected but any amount that you choose to give would be greatly appreciated. Your instructor takes great pride in their work, and a tip would reinforce that they did a great job. While some people tip around $75-$100 per day, there is no set scale, so any amount would be terrific.

6 Should I account for travel days?

Typically, students arrive at the destination and check into their hotel the evening before the start of the golf school. This allows you to start your golf school feeling refreshed and ready to begin the first morning of your golf school.

When checking out, you have the option to check out on the day of your final day of golf school and store your luggage with the hotel bellman. It is recommended to schedule your departing flight later in the evening. However, if you prefer, many of our students choose to extend their stay by one additional night and check out the following morning.

For planning purposes, plan on your last practice round lasting until around 4:00 in the afternoon.

7 What is the refund policy for inclement weather?

Regarding inclement weather, we closely monitor the forecast, and if it seems that the golf school will be completely rained out, we will consult with you to reschedule for a different time. If there is some rain during the school, we may be able to increase the hours of instruction on another day to ensure that you still receive the full allotment of hours.

In the event of a complete rain out after your arrival, we would credit you with the days that you could utilize at a later time, minus any hotel expenses that were incurred.
