Golden Horseshoe Golf Course offers free lesson in May

Colonial Williamsburg’s Golden Horseshoe Golf Club is offering a free 10-minute golf lesson as part of the PGA’s “Free Lesson Month” in May. The free lessons are great for all levels. It’s the perfect way for new golfers to have a quick introduction to the game; casual golfers can learn a few tips to improve their swing, and avid golfers can work with a PGA professional to fine tune their game.

“The free lesson month is part of the PGA’s Play Golf America initiative,” said Jeff Winters, PGA professional for the Golden Horseshoe. “It’s amazing how much a golfer can improve his game with just 10 minutes of instruction. And, it’s a terrific introduction to the game for someone who thinks he or she might be interested in golf.”

Last year, 6,340 PGA and LPGA professionals nationwide gave more than 106,600 free 10-minute lessons. To schedule a free lesson with a PGA professional at the Golden Horseshoe, call 757-220-7696. For more information about the PGA Free Lesson initiative, visit

The Golden Horseshoe is located at 401 S. England St. in Williamsburg. Golf clubs will be available for those who want to take a lesson and do not own clubs.
