"When my wife and I were planning our golf trip to Pinehurst, NC we decided to try a lesson to tune up our game prior to taking on Pinehurst. Barbara wanted a lady instructor, someone with patience and knowledge. A friend told her about a quality instructor named Charlaine Hirst. I went along believing that any lesson is better than none. Charlaine immediately located a fault in my wife's swing that helped her improve quickly. Charlaine picked out two items for me to work on that were easy to incorporate into my golf swing without totally changing my swing. Those two changes gave me immediate positive results! I am firmly convinced that anyone coming to Pinehurst, or living near Pinehurst, should take advantage of Charlaine's very reasonable rates and tune up an existing swing for a fun trip to Pinehurst. I only wish that we lived closer and I could take a series of lessons - well there is always next year and another trip to Pinehurst. Additionally, Charlaine's knowledge and information about the Pinehurst courses and surrounding area was very helpful. Charlaine, thanks for your help and for working us into your schedule.

"I have not yet met another golf instructor who has Charlaine's patience, tolerance and expertise. She has instructed me for almost a year and with every tip, lesson, and on-course play, she has pointed out ways for me to improve my game. She has enhanced not only my game from a technical perspective, adjusting my swing, stance, aim and approach, but also shifting my mindset, altering how I "see" the game of golf, i.e. golf is "not a game of perfect." She has the ability to make the game seem simple and fun, yet all while working to lower the almighty handicap! My game is improving, I still love it and look forward to my next lesson."

"I'm a new golfer. Charlaine taught me the basics - from proper address of the ball to follow through. She watched my swing and diagnosed my problems. Her lessons are insightful as well as fun. Well worth the time and money!"

"What a great introduction to this sport! Charlaine got started immediately and helped me learn the basics of grip, my golf stance and swing. She is truly intuitive and guided me to self-diagnose my own errors. I booked an hour lesson with her and she utilized every minute effectively and efficiently. If I lived closer, I would set up more lessons as I do believe she has the expertise and knowledge to not only assist novice golfers, but to provide more experienced golfers a chance to step their swing up. She is insightful and has the ability to zone in on problem areas. I would recommend her without hesitation. Moreover, she ended our lesson with a trip to the pro shop to find two used clubs so that I can practice at the driving range! It was an awesome experience. Do yourself a favor and book a class with her ASAP! Thank you, Charlaine."
