Golf lessons for adults?

golf club head in grassFred emails:

I'm trying to find some golf lessons in the Capitol Region, but haven't had much luck as far as suggestions. I know that every course has a pro who will (usually) give lessons, but I'd like to hear some recommendations. I'm not looking to become the next Tiger Woods here, just want to get myself playing at a level where I'm not embarrassing myself. I'm possibly looking for a place with indoor facilities, so I can brush up over the winter. And, I know this isn't a cheap sport, but I'd also like to avoid a huge price tag, if possible.

As Fred noted in his message, we had a similar questions a few years back about finding golf lessons for kids. As he wrote, "hoping that you would have some insight for us big kids."

We've been kind of curious about these indoors places, too, if only because they might be something to do during the winter that gets you up and moving.

So, got a suggestion for Fred? Please share!

there is a new indoor simulator off route 7 in latham. i think its called Nexgen. One of the owners sean used to be a pro at saratoga spa golf course. Not sure of costs.

This won't help Fred but there is a women's clinic every Tuesday night at 6 at Albany Muni (and I think they're doing it as long as the weather allows). It's only $20 and the few times I was able to go it was at least 1 1/2 hours long. All levels were there from me (miniture golf experience only) to women who've been playing 20+ years. I didn't have clubs (they let me use some from the lost and found) so don't let that deter you.

Dale, the manager at Colonial Acres in Glenmont, is a great instructor. He is friendly and affordable to boot.

No doubt: go see John Souza over at Stadium in Schenectady...awesome instructor

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
