Lessons and Programs

The Rockford Park District offers a wide variety of golf instruction for players of any age and ability.

This 2019 season, the RPD is excited to introduce its new PGA/LPGA Junior Golf Academy and Adult Golf Schools for golfers looking to receive instruction in an extended, group session.

Private lessons are also available for juniors and adults looking for focused attention and unique development with our professional golf staff. Instruction includes coverage of both physical elements of the game such as full swing, short game, and trouble shots and mental elements to help players stay focused and confident. Lessons also include video analysis of your swing to give you detailed and specific feedback on how to improve your game.

With a heart for exceptional customer service, all lessons and programs are taught by PGA/LPGA members, PGA/LPGA apprentices, and Rockford Park District certified instructors whose passion is centered on meeting your needs and helping you excel, from adjusting your pitching technique to fitting you for clubs.

Ladies Golf Academy

Ages: 18+

This golf school is for ladies only. The program offers all the same services as the Adult Golf School, but is open to women only, and will be taught by a female LPGA instructor. Because of its popularity, the Rockford Park District has added another golf school in August. Full swing and short game will be covered, along with video analysis; however, the class will not be going on the golf course.

Golf Clinics

Ages 18+

If you are satisfied with one area of your game, but want to work on another specific skill, you can now choose a lesson that covers only the area you’d like to improve. You will receive focused attention while participating in a smaller class size, limited to four golfers. Classes will run 75 minutes, and you will receive a video of your improvements so you can practice at home.
