At Diversey Driving Range
Will I need to purchase balls?
No, golf balls are included with your lesson. Please proceed directly to the lesson and Pat will give you some balls to warm up with.
Where do we meet for the lesson?
Typically, lessons will be given on the top left side of the driving range. There is a sign up during the season. Pat will already be there.
Which golf clubs should I bring?
If you can, please bring the entire set. If you need to travel light, bring a wedge, a seven iron and a play club (driver or 3 wood).
Do I need golf clubs?
Clubs are not necessary if you do not have them. Pat has them available if you do not.
Is there a Dress Code?
Not at Diversey Driving Range. Just be comfortable and dress in layers. Remember, that the range faces north and is near the lake. It can be quite colder than further inland. Do wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from wind and sun.
What if it is raining and/ or snowing?
Always assume that the lesson will take place. We have cover for the rain, and heat lamps for the cold. If the lesson needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather, Pat will contact you to make alternate arrangements.
Is it possible to arrange group lessons or corporate outings?
Of course, please contact Pat direct at 773-520- 4653 to set it up.
At Midtown Athletic Club
Can a non-member take a lesson?
It is somewhat restricted to members. However, it is possible to take a few lessons in the winter as a non-member. Please contact Pat directly at 773-520-4653 for more information.
