I took a group of 8 private lessons with Jon Meyers at Dana Rader over the last 6 months. This was the 3rd golf instructor I have had since I started playing 3 years ago, about an 18 handicap now. Jon is a fantastic instructor that I would highly recommend. He has a great attitude and tremendous knowledge of the... More

A couple days ago I had the opportunity to experience golf instruction at The Dana Radar Golf Academy. It was originally supposed to be a MeetUp group event but circumstances dwindled the group to just me. A bit nervous about being the sole focus for the instructor I decided to stick it out and I'm certainly glad I did. After... More

I attended the three day golf school again this year. I attended last year and broke 100 and begin playing in the mid to low 80s and have even played a few rounds in the high 70s since school last summer. I went back this summer to brush up on some fundamentals. The staff are all terrific! They focus on... More

My husband and I are beginner golfers. We signed up for the 3 day golf school. I definitely needed lots of instructions, but did not want to get "overloaded". What I received was perfect! The instructor gave me what I could handle, but did not confuse me. The facilities were excellent, lunches were yummy, and everyone was accommodating and friendly.

I took the 2 day golf school and was so impressed with the instructors and the fact that they helped every aspect of my golf game. My main instructor was John Meyers for most of the 2 days. He was excellent identifying what I needed to change for immediate results. I am hitting straighter, longer drives and irons, chipping more... More

This was my third year at Dana Rader Golf School at Ballantyne and the experience is just amazing. I came with two girlfriends and we took part in the "Stay and Play" 3-day school. FYI - be well-rested and make sure you're physically ready for non-stop golf instruction! Our teacher, Jon Meyers, was simply phenomenal. He is enthusiastic and really... More

The instruction is excellent. My instructor provided individualized and detailed explanations to help me see and understand how to adjust my movements to improve technique. I loved the lesson structure and the intensity. Also our group of students had lots of fun. I highly recommend the Dana Rader Golf School, a Golf Channel Academy. It is well worth the investment...

My wife and I attended a 3 day weekend golf school in March, while staying at the Ballantyne. Very much liked the schools approach of mixing course play with driving range, and chipping/putting facilities. Also appreciate receiving just a few corrections rather than a complete swing make over - too old and tired for that! My improvements were easy to... More

Give credit where it's due. I've had 5-10 golf lessons throughout my playing years. It took until I was 60 to find the right teacher. Nancy Harvey has a tremendous knack for fixing what was broken. I was a struggling with consistency but now have a strong routine to get me on plane. If I could give 10 stars I... More
