• “My wife hated golf: I’ve been a golf professional since 1976 and nothing new has excited me much in quite a while. However, when I saw Monarch Dune’s Green Tee Program, I was blown away! It utilizes the same successful teaching methods I’ve used for years (putting, chipping, irons, woods) in that order, but IT’S ON THE COURSE!”

  • “Monarch’s approach completely removes intimidation that beginners usually experience when taking up the game. So instead of being scared of the course, they embrace it. Because of the way Jim took me and my wife through the green tees she now loves golf and is practicing even at home.”

  • I'm new to golf and had my first lesson with Jim DeLaby and I must say that I had a great time on the course! The 45 minute lesson focused on a few basics and tips. I was really hesitant when I purchased the groupon since I wasn't sure if it would be too overwhelming being my first time. But I am glad I did and I'm looking forward to taking more lessons. I highly recommend this!

  • Took a lesson with my wife. Instructor was great. I've played for years and she helped clean up a couple things for my game. Dropped my wife's game, who has only been playing for about a year, 20+ strokes. Grounds were well taken care of. All staff we encountered from check-in to cart guys, marshall, were very nice. Food at clubhouse was predictable but very good as was the service there. Great afternoon. ...twice.

  • My husband and I learned so much from Jim DeLaby at our lesson and then we were able to practice what we learned on the Challenge Course at Monarch Dunes. Jim is THE BEST!

  • Mr. Delaby, the staff at Monarch Dunes, and the facilities are quite excellent. We will definitely be returning on a regular basis and taking lessons with Mr. Delaby in the future.
