"Max knows golf mechanics. He's got the eye to see what you are doing wrong, high speed video to prove it to you, and the knowledge and tools to improve your game. Instruction doesn't end with your swing either. Max will teach you how to prepare yourself mentally, give great tips about rules, course management, and strategies on how to be prepared for inclement weather. My son is in Max's group lessons. His rapidly improved swing as been recognized by his High School golf coach. We get great returns from time and money spent at Golfsmart."

"Ric helped me to get the correct form needed to have a repeatable and consistent swing... After just 6 lessons I managed to finish a game well under my previous best score a handful of times and more importantly, I developed an even greater passion for the game".

"I play in the senior league at Cinco Ranch. A few months back I lost my swing. I couldn't break 90. It was at this time that I began working with Ric at GolfSmart. Today I am a 13 handicap and for the first time in competition I shot in the 70's!
