From Cog Hill to Chicago Golf Club, our golf teachers are located at some of the best courses. They are committed to providing you with expert golf instruction to help your game.

Advantages of Using Alluvit

Play at Private Clubs

Private Clubs are normally only open to their members, but we have partnered with several course pros that will allow you to play some of the most prestigious Chicago courses. For example, the general public can now get lessons at Medinah and Chicago Golf Club without being a member. Spend your day like you're a member and take advantage of the amentities many of these clubs offer. Private club benefits include:

  • Certified Golf Instructors
  • Less Crowds Than Most Public Courses
  • Premium Practice Facilities

Your golf lesson cost may be slightly higher at the private courses, but the benefits can far outweigh the cost.

Chicago Golf Lessons at Public Courses

While the private clubs can offer some extra exclusivity and amenities a public course might not, getting a golf lesson in Chicago at some of the best public golf courses is just as valuable for your game. Cog Hill offers 4 18-hole championship courses with the famous Cog Hill #4, affectionately known as Dubsdread. It has been ranked in the top 100 public courses in the country since it first opened in 1964. Public golf courses like this can provide great opportunities to take your game to the next level. In addition, public courses can offer:

  • Great rates on group lessons in Chicago
  • Convenient access, friendlier dress codes
  • Access to anyone

Like private courses, public courses offer lessons from kids to adults. With leagues running during the summer, spring, and fall, public courses can provide an opportunity improve for a lower price.

What to Expect

Technology has changed the game over the past 20 years. Advanced video technology and the wide availability of launch monitors has allowed golf teachers in Chicago to help students improve far more quickly than ever before. There is nothing like being able to see your swing on video. Seeing it for yourself makes it much easier to make the changes your instructor suggests.

If you reserve a golf instructor who uses a launch monitor, you will be able to figure out a multitude of things; including what club and ball combination works best for your swing. Everyone swings differently. Picking the correct clubs to match your game can be a challenge. Instructors who use a launch monitor can help you rapidly increase distance and control. Our pros specialize in helping you understand the numbers and how to improve them to maximize your potential.

Questions to Consider

  • Do you have difficulty hitting the ball straight?
  • Do you have trouble with your short game?
  • Do you 3 putt at least 1 time per round?
  • Do you know exactly how far you hit each club?

These questions can help get you an idea of what areas you need to improve so your teacher can tailor a lesson package for you.

So Why Use Alluvit?

Golf equipment companies say they can change your game. Maybe a shiny new toy will help you, but the help will likely only be mental.If it was as simple as buying a new club, your next low round would be as simple as that new $400 driver purchase. Without consistent practice with techniques learned from a true Chicago golf professional, your money will probably be wasted. Let the best players in the area help you fine tune your game and shoot the lowest rounds of your life instead.

Our founders have played the game professionally for over 20+ combined years. They have taken the time to carefully procure Chicago golf teachers to provide you with sensible options. Whether you're looking for a 30 minute fix or a complete swing overhaul, our pros have the equipment and technology to help improve your game today.
