Any one have any recommendations for taking golf lessons for a beginner? I've played only a couple of times and I'd like to take some private lessons so I don't keep embarrassing myself. Relatively affordable would be nice. Thanks! Anywhere near Arlington, Falls Church, Vienna area, even Springfield.

Years ago we took beginning lessons at Oakmar Rec Center in Oakton through the county rec program. They provided clubs even and was a good experience for someone who had no idea what she was doing, meaning me!

I'll second Oak Marr especially because they have a 9 hole course that is perfect for learning! Very low stress.

There are also many beginners clinics -- usually 10-15 people -- which is a much lower cost way for getting basic information.

The Every Body Golf School has instructors at the public courses at Burke Lake and Oak Marr. They have group lessons for beginners which are inexpensive and you can also take private lessons.

Fairfax county offers group lessons for beginners and intermediate golfers. I took lessons down at Burke Lake golf club.

I'd recommend Top Golf in Kingstown. They have group and individual lessons.
