The school is being taught at Tupelo Bay Golf Center now. The school walks you through all the basics and will help your game in all areas. Well worth the effort and help my game tremendous.

My husband and I attended 3 day golf school. Class begins with a video of swing and grip. Instruction and pratice follows on the driving range. After 3 hours of lessons, the video was reviewed. The video analysis was broken down so we were able to see areas of weakness. The next two days included correction of errors, instruction on... More

During the three half a days lessons with Lance I received a very good approach to the flaws of my game (not enough hip turn, follow through - avoid "chicken wing"), systematic approach, well done analysis, good understanding between the two of us. The results were surprisingly good. My shots with fairway woods became very stable again. Instead of many... More

Best golf teacher on the planet ! It was great to see how much my ten year old grandson learned. Excellent for both of us. Three hours for three days in a row well spent. The personal video for each student is a treasure. Jeanne

I have gone from teacher to teacher all my life and never really had the right fit, some much too confusing and others too simple. This was before I went to Mel Sole golf school and got a lesson from David Olberding. David is by far the best teacher you can go to anywhere in the United States. I am... More

Took a lesson with Dave and could not be more pleased with the results.. within 10 minutes Dave identified a couple big flaws in my swing and corrected them by the end of the lesson. Would never have realized what was wrong without his expertise and the video presentation. Plan on going back again for tune-ups as needed. His instruction... More

Had 2 days with Dave. Felt like I was the only student. Great personal attention. Dave allowed me to focus on the particular aspects I wanted to work on which resulted in me taking home some key learning points.

David Olberding is a phenomenal instructor!! I am a beginning golfer and he was spectacular working with me to develop my swing. The videos of my before and after swings showed how much of an improvement was made after David's expertise instruction. He covered all aspects of the game - pitching, chipping, putting, bunker play, etc... I would highly recommend... More

My husband and I took the 3 day golf school with Mel Sole in Myrtle Beach. We were both very pleased with the class. Mel is knowledgable, pleasant, patient and a great teacher.

My friend and I decided to do the 3 day golf school instead of playing and are so glad that we did. Dave is a great teacher and helps identify with video analysis areas for improvement with our swings and then provided concrete drills and swing thoughts for improvement. We would definitely recommend for others. Hard to pass up playing... More
