    I am starting to look into paying for golf lessons. I have been playing golf for years but I haven’t had proper instruction and am therefore too erratic for my liking. I would like information for instruction or private lessons if they are offered, ie. pricing, scheduling, etc. I live in Corpus Christi so I would have to drive up for each lesson.

        I have been trying to schedule a lesson with Jim Barker and have called the 347-7759 number and all I get is an automated menu. When I try to get the pro shop all I get is hours of operation, tee times, range hours etc. I don’t know how to schedule an appt.

    I see you have instruction for beginners and/or those of us with limited ability. Are there others in this category who might be interested in playing with duffers?

    • Admin for Post author

      CJ, we love having novice players come out and begin to learn the game. We don’t really have any procedure for pairing golfers up however. Sorry about that. We do look forward to seeing you come out and play though!

  • Greg Tardiff

    My name is Greg Tardiff and I am the Director of Sales for Bacula Systems US Eastern Region and Canada. I was forwarded your information from Deanna Smith at Residence Inn in downtown San Antonio. Myself and a group 5 associates will be staying in San Antonio for a customer training and we were interested in doing a golf outing/lessons on Fri 2/12/16. I wanted to see if I could speak to someone and see what you have to offer and how we can go about setting something up?
    When you have a free moment, please give me a call on my cell at (201) 456-4972 so we can discuss or email me at
    I thank you in advance for your time and look forward to speaking w/you.

      Hello Tom. Yes you should give the Pro Shop a call at 210-824-4500. Jim is teaching on a pretty limited basis these days.

  • Peter

    This is Peter. I was wondering if there was an instructor available today after 5PM.
    I’m looking for a rate like $60/hr.

    Please let me know if this can happen.

    Thank you
