At present, I am offering the following lessons, classes, clinics, schools and clubs:

GOLF INSTRUCTION MARATHON to raise money for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Heart Transplant Center.

I watched a NBC Dateline show about a family who had a child who needed a heart transplant. When doctors checked the other kids in the family, one other daughter needed a heart transplant, and all of the other 3 siblings have the marker for the same disease. This show touched me. One week later, I had a new student send me an email to tell me he would be staying near Lucile Packard hospital for the next year and wanted to take lessons from me. When I asked about staying near the hospital, he told me his 2 year old daughter is awaiting a heart transplant. I knew then that I had to do something!

On Saturday, June 25th, I will teach from 5:00am to 10:00pm (a total of 17 straight hours) to raise money for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. If you would like a lesson during the 17 hours, please email me at shorelinebill@hotmail.com.

Details for a donation website are coming soon!

Adult Beginner’s Class – Level 1 –
Starts Sunday, July 10th at 12:00pm – 1:00pm (Class dates – 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 8/7, and 8/14. This class is for beginning golfers who would like to learn the basics of the golf swing. This class is also for high handicap golfers who never learned the basics and would like to improve. My method has been extremely successful for all of the beginners who have taken lessons with me! We start slow and are very patient! You will be amazed at how well you will hit the ball during the first class! Get a jump on the summer and sign up for Shoreline Bill’s Adult Golf Basics class. Cost is $149 for 5 – 1 hour classes.

Adult Beginner’s Class – Level 2 –

Starts Sunday, July 10th at 11:00am – 12:00pm (Class dates – 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 8/7, and 8/14. This class is a continuation for students who completed Level 1. These beginner classes are a great way to learn the proper techniques required to hit a golf ball. When you learn the correct technique and why they are required, you learn. Once you learn, you do not forget!

This method is the same method I used to go from a horrible golfer to a PGA member and instructor!

Drop-in Classes:

Drop-in classes are offered every Tuesday (from 3:00pm to 4:00pm) and every Wednesday (from 4:00pm to 6:00pm).  Drop-in classes, as the name suggests, do not require you to make a reservation to attend.  You just show up at the Shoreline Golf Links driving range and “drop-in!”  It is that simple!  For $20, you get to hit lots of golf balls under the watchful eye of a PGA instructor, ME!!  If you are a beginner, intermediate, elite, or junior golfer or are in the market for a new golf instructor, the drop-in class is a wonderful way to meet me and see if my personality, teaching style and knowledge are what you are looking for in an instructor.  It is also just a fun way to spend an afternoon with friends or co-workers at the driving range!

Adult Classes:

If you are interested in attending one of the following Adult Classes, but the dates or times do not meet your schedule, please email me at shorelinebill@hotmail.com and we can work something out!

Bill has vastly improved my golf game. He’s great at observing your swing and pinpointing things that need improvement. He’s got a wide array of drills and tips to help you improve. I’ve really enjoyed having him as an instructor.

Be patient with his drills cause they do pay off in the end. Also be patient because it seems like everyone walking by the golf range knows and loves Bill, and may stop to talk to him for a minute, right in the middle of your lesson 🙂 But Bill genuinely wants to help make you a better golfer. I’ve been a part of his drop-in class and group lessons for about three years now. Absolute beginner when I started. Still have a long way to go but Bill has helped me come a long way too.

Bill is a fantastic teacher! He can spot where your swing has gone wrong and provide exercises and tips which will help you correct it. If you like the techie side, he can go into explaining the mechanics and what makes a good swing. He personally demos of how to do it correctly and how not to. He also uses all sorts of “training aides” to help you get the feel of what he is talking about. Besides all of this, Bill is really nice and sincerely wants to help make you a better golfer. He is very generous with his time and input, plus he tells good stories.

I have taken his short game, putting class and Winter Club and my game has definitely improved.

I’ve had ‘learn to golf’ on my list for a while now and finally made it out to the driving range with Bill’s instruction. Once upon a time I would have gone out with a friend and picked up his bad habits. But somehow I’ve become wiser or have just heard too many golfer stories about what a mountain of frustration the game is to them.

It was hugely helpful to know what I was doing wrong and to have his input on how to fix it.

I worked on one issue for a bit, improved it, and stumbles upon another Bill was able to point out (and eventually starting making my previous mistake again BUT I knew what I was doing wrong and could fix it!). Getting his feedback on what I needed to think about made all the difference in being able to develop a better swing and have a good time out there.

I now have a list of 4 or 5 things that I can cue into and boom!… the ball goes further. Or sometimes I practice it a few more times and THEN boom! The ball goes further.

An excellent start. I would highly recommend.

Bill is the best! He doesn’t try to reinvent you; he takes you where you are and makes you into a better golfer. I like the clinic where you can work on one thing and not get overwhelmed by it all. I have recommended him to a number of people and they all agree he is the best!

I go to Bill’s drop-in clinics and get a wealth of information and instruction every time – he’s topnotch! Bill reads my hit and makes immediate adjustments – improvements happen with practice and Bill notices the progress and keeps taking me to the next level. He also has a positive mindset and is always a great resource for all things golf.
