I've taken lessons and attended practice sessions with Jenn Holt for a year. Jenn is a is an expert, persistent and patient LPGA golf coach. I have seen her make the game of golf accessible to students of all ages and capabilities.
In addition to being a skilled golf professional, she's an outstanding teacher who's astute observations allow her to provide each student with just the right feedback to take that individual to an improved level of golf.
Every lesson from Jenn is just the right balance of teaching and guided practice. When I leave a lesson, I know just what to do to successfully practice the new skill- I can't wait to get to the course! Because of Jenn golf is fun and I continuously improve!
The day I first met Jenn, about two years ago, I told her that I was interested in taking lessons while warning her that I knew nothing about golf. I told her that my lack of knowledge included not knowing what a green was, a wood or an iron, not to mention the words “bogie and birdie.” Basically, I knew nothing about the game of golf. I told her that I did play tennis competitively for a number of years and have always been pretty athletic. Jenn so graciously smiled and put me in her calendar for a series of lessons. I took at least one lesson per week and went to the range regularly with instructions that Jenn had given me with particular things to work on.
Lessons with Jenn always begin with a greeting and a huge smile. The first lesson day Jenn took me over to the putting green with some basic instructions and asked me to putt towards the hole. She pointed out what I did right and worked from there. She then handed me an iron as we moved to the range and asked me to swing. From there she began to slowly break down the golf swing in a way that I could understand. My determination to learn and stick with it came with Jenn’s ability to keep me feeling successful.
Jenn’s positive approach and patience keeps me wanting to improve and challenge myself to become a better and better golfer. I find myself excited about hitting that little white ball and so much of my enjoyment of the game came from Jenn’s teaching style. She also has introduced me to other golf students and has taken us out on the course as a way of adding to our confidence and enjoyment. I feel fortunate to have had Jenn as my instructor I would recommend her to anyone that wants to learn the correct way to swing a club and also have a fun experience along the way.
