"... lessons in how to get more distance while keeping the ball in play and yourself out of the chiropractor's office"

"You learn directly from Blakemore, the school's only instructor, a huge plus"

Gonna crush it!

I've been hitting the ball long since I was a junior golfer, and competed in Long Driving from 1985 - 2000 (see credentials below). One of my main specialties is teaching golfers how to hit the ball farther: getting more distance on drives off the tee, with fairway woods and with iron shots. Through a combination of factors you can learn to maximize your distance (without falling over, blurring your vision, or hurting yourself). smile

There are a number of things that can be done to improve your ability to hit the ball long and all players, from beginners to advanced, would benefit from the Long Drive Schools, if interested in gaining more distance.

There are many advantages to taking my schools over the most popular golf schools across the country today. Foremost among the benefits is the fact that you'll receive more personal one-on-one instruction from the main (and only) instructor (me) than any other golf school that I am aware of. My golf schools are private sessions with individuals, couples or very small groups of friends or family pre-arranged by the student. How much personal attention can you stand? I believe you will find the experience to be valuable.

I also suggest, based on my specific combination of credentials (see below), that I know of no other person anywhere more qualified to teach you how to increase your distance.

Crush It!

"My visit to you has helped me more than anything else that I have ever done to improve my golf game. My iron shots are 20 to 30 yards further and much straighter. My divots are straight toward the target."

"I am getting 40 to 50 yards more with my driver and the shots are more consistent and predictable. I am hitting my 3 wood more than 200 yards (the longest was 240 yards) ."

Schedule & Rates

There is not a fixed schedule for the Custom Golf Schools or the Long Drive Schools, as they are private sessions based on your availability, goals, etc. They are scheduled and priced on an individual basis. This chart will give you a general idea of the typical cost of the most common session lengths.

Golf School Rates *
 One student   Two students 
 3 hours per day   $225   $300 
 5 hours per day   $350   $500 
* Includes golf instruction only - does not include travel, lodging, food, etc.
All first-time students receive supplemental materials, so the cost of the first session-only is $30 more than later sessions.
Green fee or cart fee may be extra for sessions that include playing on the course.
Discounts apply with multiple sessions in one week.
