"I've only had one lesson with Larry but I can tell this will be a teacher/student relationship that will work perfectly for me. Larry explains things in a very clear way, is encouraging, and understands what we amateur golfers are trying to get out of our game. None of us will be playing on the PGA Tour anytime soon so our swing and general approach to the game should be different. His package rate for private lessons is very reasonable making Larry's services the best value in Palm Beach County." Marc C.
"It was great working with Larry. He is very educated in golf and understands how best to teach somebody at the pace they can learn. Would recommend for golf lessons anytime!" Lukas F.
"Excellent short game lesson. I learned more in an hour than all these years trying short game swings myself. Quite impressive." Josef A.
"First lesson with my 14 year old beginner golfer today! Unbelievable how great Larry was! Very excited for the next lessons to come. My son is excited to learn and is already looking forward to next week. Thanks Larry! Look forward to working with you for a long time." Darren D.
"Larry is incredibly knowledgable and easy to work with. His approach teaches good habits and is focused on the big picture, making lessons easy to learn and remember. In just an hour or two I already felt like I was making great progress. Super nice guy, would highly recommend for everyone!" Lukas G.
"I am in my early 20's and have been around golf my whole life. I was a very accomplished junior golfer and have had many top rated teaching pros in my life to help me throughout the way. Because of work and too many things going on in life I've been too busy to play that often meaning my game really took a hit. I read up on Larry and how he takes steps to teach on posture grip and swing circle instead of many pros who try and change a natural swing. I was so impressed with Larry’s knowledge of the golf swing, posture, grip, etc. He was hands down the best pro that I've ever had the pleasure of working with and would recommend him to beginners, and advanced golfers. Check this guy out and you will be amazed with what he can do for your game!" Brandon W.
"I'm completing a 4-lesson series with Larry next week at Okeeheelee.
As a high-handicapper who has taken lessons before, I've found Larry to be the most effective teacher I've had. He combines easy-to-understand instruction and example with congenial interaction, very different than what I've seen before.
I hope he'll remain a member of the teaching staff at Okeeheelee/PBCG for an extended tenure." - Sonny Bloom
"We wanted to take the time to drop a note regarding Larry Wise. We have been playing for just two years and taken lessons from seven different golf instructors, including Larry. Until I (Wayne) began to take his clinics two months ago, I was ready to give up golf forever. The six instructors prior to him failed to inspire or improve me well enough to continue playing a game I was not enjoying at all. I now drive 50 yards farther and can shoot straighter more often than ever before.
He is patient, respectful, considerate, highly skilled, and knowledgeable. Larry has a way of imparting the art of golf which enables us to improve our skills immensely. His attention during group lessons is just right and instruction doesn’t stop after the lessons. Often when we run into him at various times, he’s happy to answer any questions we might have. Larry is highly dedicated to our success and those of all his students. We will continue to take Larry’s clinics at Okeeheelee and Park Ridge." - Wayne & Sue Marshman
