We Teach People, Not a Method

Come take Golf Lessons from our 2-Time Teacher of the Year!

C.Bob Tays,Our teaching philosophy at Gateway National Golf Links is based on “Individual Game Improvement.”

Every player arrives with unique physical attributes and individual athletic abilities. We tailor your personal program to you and not to a prescribed method.

Our philosophy is founded on the fundamentals of grip, posture, and alignment. These pre-swing fundamentals have a profound effect on the reason we play – “Ball Flight.” From the focus on grip, posture, and alignment we can build a golf swing for your physical attributes. These philosophies apply equally to the full swing or the short game.

At Gateway National Golf Links “We Teach People, Not a Method.”

Lessons by all professionals are 45 minutes in length.

Gift certificates are available in various denominations for golf lessons. Contact Bob Tays, our PGA Director of Instruction, at 618-830-4492 to purchase a lesson certificate.
