“so I’m taking this opportunity to broadcast a thank you to Rhonda for an outstanding lesson earlier this week. I’ve practiced what she taught me, it feels so natural, AND today, with our Laterra Links’ Men’s Group at K&B, I shot a 39 and a 41 for an 18 hole score of 80, winning Stableford with 44 points, winning low gross, and winning low net!!! Never played this well — ever!! We all know tomorrow another golfer may take over my body; but, today — today — what a day!! Rhonda, I’m a believer — YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!”
“We came to check on private lessons for juniors, and were very pleased with the experience right from the start. Ms. Rhonda Ferguson greeted us with a big smile and was able to provide a one-hour lesson to our son within minutes! We can’t thank her enough for her true professionalism and the ability to make us feel very welcome there. Not only did she provide very valuable instruction to our son, she also gave many useful tips to us parents on how to best practice at home. We’re coming back in a couple of weeks and look forward to having more lessons with her at the Academy!”
“Our son has been taking private and group lessons with Coach Rhonda Ferguson for several months now, and we cannot be happier!! Rhonda pours her heart and soul into everything she does with junior players. Our son loves her and always looks forward to his lessons with her! His game has improved dramatically, and he’s now a more consistent and confident player, taking it to the next level in his tournament play. For us, Rhonda is the best coach out there and we highly recommend her and the PGA TOUR Golf Academy!”
“Rhonda did a phenomenal job. Her ability to work with my son who is an eight-year-old was excellent. She has excellent communication skills we are very satisfied and will continue to work with her.”
“I have taken a few lessons but felt overwhelmed with so much information that I wasn’t even able to make good contact on the ball. Rhonda immediately had excellent suggestions and practice tips that enable me to begin the process. Her teaching skills are very easy going, effective and practical, which allowed me to relax and feel at ease. Her passion for the game was contagious and I will certainly schedule more practice sessions with her. She is a jewel and I’m so glad she is part of the team.”
“Rhonda was an excellent instructor with a skill of relaying information on many levels. This was my first experience with golf and now, I am “hooked”.
“The instructors were amazing. They explained the reason I was having trouble and provided the solutions that improved my game by leaps and bounds or should I say yards..Whether you are a resident or a visitor to the area (as I was), I highly recommend taking advantage of the expertise provided. You can take individual lessons, group lessons, or set up specialized troubleshooting lessons. A special thanks to Din and Rhonda for making my golf game more enjoyable and less stressful.”
“Great lesson with Rhonda. Gave very clear and importantly actionable corrections to swing. Other lessons I’ve had were not like hers. I would definitely recommend her.”
“Love Rhonda Ferguson. She is an exceptional instructor for my 14 year old son.”
