“Jennifer Shillington was my instructor and I have to tell you about my experience. I have been working on the things Jen as instilled in me and I am hitting the ball better than I ever have in my life. I have been playing golf for 25 years and I never really understood the golf swing. After 10+ hours of instruction I am finally standing up to ball with confidence with the full swing, pitching, chipping and putting. Your school teaches every aspect of golf and this difficult game has become so much easier and FUN for me! I am finally “scoring”… something I always knew I was capable of but now I have the knowledge and tools to accomplish. I’m solid proof of another success story coming out of the Mel Sole Golf School. Your instructors are amazing and a huge reason the program works! Thanks for the incredible experience.”

“Jennifer is an excellent teacher. She has an incredible ability to determine the student’s learning style and then has the knowledge of the game to instruct them accordingly. Her knowledge of the short game and full swing have been an enormous help to me. In 2000, I finished 4th in a major and 76th on the LPGA money list. By far my best year!!”
– Diana D’Alessio, LPGA Tour Player
“Jen is a great communicator and has been extremely effective in correcting my swing flaws. I like the fact that she won’t proceed to the next topic until she is sure her student has mastered the current correction”.

“As you know from my personality, I make my choices decisively, but with some care. I am congratulating myself on having chosen so wisely. Jen, you are an instinctive, supportive, and resourceful teacher. A gifted teacher.”
