8 Westchester Courses Where You Can Learn From A PGA Pro

It’s best to learn from the best.

You don’t need to join a private country club to benefit from lessons from top-notch golf professionals in Westchester. All of the county and city courses are staffed by highly capable, experienced PGA professionals as well. And with private-lesson rates as low as $40 per half-hour, you don’t really have an excuse for taking another lesson from your well-meaning but clueless brother-in-law. Whether you want to try out a group lesson, introduce your kids to the game during a summer clinic, or spend some one-on-one time on the lesson tee with a golf pro who really knows what he or she is talking about, you can do it here:

Full-Immersion Golf School for Armonk Teen

Lee Hammerschmidt gave up a quarterback spot on the Byram Hills football team this year to take the plunge into serious golf at the International Junior Golf Academy on Hilton Head Island.

“I’ve gotten a lot out of it, especially competing every weekend,” he says. “I can also see a definite improvement in my swing after the first semester. I’m going to be working on my scoring game in the second half of the year.”

AT IJGA, Hammerschmidt attends school for five hours every weekday at Heritage Academy, then spends his afternoons getting daily golf instruction in all facets of the game. On-course practice is held at four Hilton Head courses. Most weekends are spent competing in International Junior Golf Tour and American Junior Golf Association events around the country.

The 17-year-old high school junior picked up a love of the game playing with his father, Gerry, at Whippoorwill in Armonk, where they live near the course. He’s undecided about where he’ll spend his senior year, but hopes IJGA will help him land a golf scholarship at a Division I college.
