When we met James Brooks last year, my confidence was almost shattered. After my first three day school, he restored not only my swing, but gave me a regiment of practice to use at home. My practice strictly followed his outlined workouts and I stuck to the plan throughout the rest of the summer and into the winter. When winter broke, I returned to the practices and counted the days to this year's classes. He encouraged us to travel to the Grande Dunes school and that was a real blessing. Practicing there was fantastic! When I left, I was returning home to compete in my first tournament in the Northern Ohio Junior PGA. Nothing has made me feel so much better than working with James!! I have not just met a great teacher, but my coach and my friend -James Brooks.
The experience with Mel Sole golf school only gets better when you return!

Worth every penny, From first phone contact to driving away our foursome had a ball, the most important thing I learned was that I couldn't fix my problems by reading and self medicating my game. I finally know how to swing a golf club, I may not do it all the time but I know how and should I fall off the wagon I know the drills to get it back. Thank you

Dave Olberding taught me (a beginner) and my husband (intermediate golfer). His instruction was very clear and visual. This enabled us to understand and remember the correct application of golfing fundamentals. Dave uses state of the art video training techniques. Well worth the time and money. We are from out of state and wished we lived closer!

My instructor, Dave Olberding, helped me immediately. All my experiences at the Mel Sole Golf Schools have been excellent and this was a similar experience! Highly recommend it. My wife and I enjoy the 3 day school but if you have less time you can benefit from even a hour with Dave.

I heard such great reviews of this golf school, that I flew from NJ to attend. Dave was my instructor and he was very patient as he provided me with suggestions, drills and techniques to improve my game. The video and commentary that he emailed me, provided great follow up for review. If you are in the myrtle beach area, do yourself a favor and get at least 1 lesson from Dave. Its a 'game changer"!
