Perfect Your Swing at Our Maine Golf School

Golf Lessons

The Samoset Scoring Schools will take your game to the next level on one of the finest golf courses in Maine. Our PGA certified instructors have years of experience and will help you develop more confidence on the course by emphasizing your core strengths while teaching you how to adjust for any weaknesses. All areas of the game are covered in our scoring school sessions from irons, woods and hybrids to tips for improving your putting, chipping and pitching.

The overall success of the Samoset Scoring Schools is a combination of on-course instruction, low student-to-teacher ratios and techniques that help you develop more confidence on the course. Lengthen your drive, improve the accuracy of your iron shots and save countless strokes on the greens. The Samoset also uses a high-speed JC Video analysis system to show you exactly where your swing errors are and then works with you to correct them. We are also happy to evaluate your current equipment and make recommendations for proper set make-up as well as provide custom golf club fittings. In short, our schools can take your game to where you’ve always dreamed it should be.

At the Samoset Scoring Schools, our instructors will:
  • Teach you the ball flight laws so you can recognize your own swing flaws, make corrections and create a personalized practice routine that will improve your swing fundamentals after returning home.
  • Help develop a pre-shot routine that will establish solid, consistent fundamentals to aid you in the execution of the many different types of shots you will face on the course.
  • Improve your short game feel by teaching you the time-tested techniques that will allow you to master pitching, chipping, bunker play and putting, which together, represent over 60% of the shots you encounter on the course and the fastest way to lowering your scores.
