I received an email the other day from an assistant professional at a private golf club who had a great question. A question a lot of instructors have to face in their growth cycle, and at the time, it almost seems impossible.
Here’s the email I received..
It is my first year here and my problem is finding members that want to get lessons from me. They have no problem asking one of the other pros that have been there for numerous years. I understand that I am new to the club, but I guess my question is what is the best way to establish some credibility in the teaching industry? I will be leading junior clinics this summer and I already have a teaching program with an 11 year old, but I’m more interested in teaching older individuals. Do you think I just start with juniors and work my way up?
