Lessons & Leagues

Massanutten Resort is committed to providing quality instruction to our guests. All clinics and lessons are scheduled with one of Massanutten's PGA-trained golf professionals.

The PGA Professional Golf Staff at Massanutten Resort has a combined 80+ years of experience in teaching the game of golf, and are available for private or group lessons. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced golfer, we have programs catering to your needs. We are here to help you develop your skills so that you will be able to play our two, 18-hole golf courses with confidence. 

Pro Tip: When the ball is below your feet (for a right handed golfer) this proves to be a difficult shot as the golf ball will fly to the right. To play this shot with success, aim more to the left which will give you room for the ball to move right.

This lesson is ideal for the golfer wanting to learn on a one-on-one basis. Lesson topics can include basic fundamentals, full swing work with woods and irons, and short game shots.

The club fitting fee can be applied to the purchase of new equipment.

 

Video Swing Analysis | $80

Video swing analysis costs $80 and scheduled appointments are required.

Ladies League

Every Thursday from April 21 - September 29, 2016 | Mountain Greens GC or Woodstone Meadows GC

No Experience Necessary!

Four weeks of instructional clinics will be offered starting Tuesday, March 29, 2016. Clinics will be offered Tuesday's and Thursday's (4:30 pm & 6 pm) and Saturday's (12 pm & and 2 pm) based on participation. The four week classes will feature different aspects of golf fundamentals. The first week of clinics introduces putting fundamentals and using games to enhance learning. The second week, we will begin working on your short game (chipping and pitching) around the green. The third and fourth weeks will involve golf swing fundamentals and rules. Call the Woodstone Meadows Golf Course at 540.289.4919 to schedule your clinic time.

For players not attending the golf clinics, the playing season will begin on April 21 through September 29, 2016. Tee times will begin at 4:30 pm every Thursday at the designated golf course for that week (Mountain Greens GC or Woodstone Meadows GC). The fees for the Massanutten Ladies Golf League are $40. Once play begins each player will pay an additional $25 to acquire a USGA Golf Handicap that will be used when determining teams for games each week.

The format of play will change weekly and may include:

  • Pink Lady: Teams are comprised of four golfers. On each hole, one of the four golfers plays a pink golf ball (hence the name Pink Lady). The other three golfers will play a scramble format on the hole. Both the Pink Lady score and the scramble score will combine for a total score on the hole. 
  • Three Clubs and a Putter: Pick any three clubs and a putter from your bag to play 9-holes.
  • Blind Partners: Two players picked at random to be paired as a team in best-ball format.
  • Captain's Choice/Scramble: The format is typically played with four golfers per team. In a scramble format; each player tees off on the hole and the best shot is then selected. All players will then play another shot from that position. This process is repeated till the ball is deemed to be holed out. Less experienced players tend to enjoy this format!
  • Par 3 Night: Each hole on nine holes will be played as a par three.
  • Many more!

We encourage anyone interested in playing in the Ladies Golf League to join us for the first clinic on Tuesday, March 29. If you have any questions, please contact Jason Crawford, PGA at the Woodstone Meadows GC at 540.289.4919 or jcrawford@pga.com. Hope to see you on the links!
