Mel Sole Golf School One of Only Six Golf Schools to Make the List Every Year since its inception in 1999!

In 2008, the Mel Sole Golf School was once again chosen as one of America’s 25 Best Golf Schools, according to GOLF magazine’s biennial ranking. We are only six golf schools to remain on this prestigious list since it first appeared in 1999.

“This group has done it longer and better than any golf school.”GOLF magazine, Nov 2008

The Mel Sole Golf School Golf School, headquartered at Pawleys Island, SC.  We also have locations in Sunset Beach, NC, Ellicottville, NY, and México.

“We feel honored to be recognized as one of the best schools in the country,” said Mel Sole, Director of Golf Instruction. “When our golf school was included in the inaugural ranking 9 years ago, I established a goal with my instructors to be on that list every time. We strive to help each of our students achieve his or her personal best.  It’s gratifying to receive such good feedback.”

Below is an excerpt from GOLF magazine describing how they select the “Top 25” golf schools.

Every top school touts its roster of teaching aids, from multi-million dollar, computer generated swing models to four camera video analysis and private 60 acre ranges. While such extras are helpful, the backbone of any school is the quality of its instruction and instructors. In our first ever GOLF Magazine survey, 81 percent of golf school graduates say they plan to attend another school, with 55 percent saying they plan to return to the school they had already attended. With so many schools hitting the mark, how did we narrow the field?

First, we went to the experts at ShawGuides, Inc., the largest and most up-to-date publisher of golf school directories in the world. They helped us track down the most current information on every adult golf school in America.

Second, we judged each school’s curriculum and instruction facilities. We checked the teachers’ credentials, such as the number of years they have been with the school and the percentage who are PGA or LPGA Class A professionals.  The principal reason for attending a school is game improvement.

Finally, in conjunction with ShawGuides, we asked graduates to rate their experiences. Thousands of alumni logged on to www.shawguides.com or linked there from our website www.golfonline.com, to fill out a comprehensive survey. Thousands more did the same survey in our March issue. We measured the responses to the questions about the quality of instruction. Once all of these factors were put together, we made our final decision for the list of America’s Top 25 Schools.
