The PGA & LPGA teaching professionals at The Havens Country Club offer instruction and guidance for your golf game at every level. Whether you’re a scratch golfer looking for some fine-tuning or picking up a club for the first time, your professionals will provide the technical skills and mental strategies to help you play your ultimate best. You and your professional will work together to determine your goals and create a personal lesson and practice plan to meet your needs. Part of the golf strategy is to develop a strong relationship with your goals as a golfer to get you ready to play in various fun and engaging weekly games, golf outings, and tournaments or enjoy a fun, relaxing round on the weekend with your friends and family. No matter your goals in this fantastic game of golf, your professionals are your on-site, on-hand partners to help you every step of the way. Developing strong, long-term relationships with your professionals will help you meet your goals and maximize your enjoyment of the game.

A few options include individual lessons, playing lessons (on-course instruction), beginning golfer lesson series, junior camps, specialty clinics, and corporate events incorporating a golf outing.

Individual & Group Golf Lessons

The Havens Country Club features a private, 12-stall, grass practice range with multiple target greens to aim for, two short game practice areas and a large, rolling putting green all exclusively for our golf members and their guests.

The short game practice areas feature a hidden sanctuary with an elevated green to practice blasting from a greenside bunker, and a second green and pitching area winding along the natural river bed terrain of the valley. The areas help you refine your short game skills and give you a perspective of how the course actually plays. These areas resemble similar features and nuances of the actual championship course. Just remember, practice makes perfect!
