"Ned, school was terrific, just what I was looking for. Andy quickly showed me what I’ve been doing wrong and how to make corrections. I now know what to concentrate on and a better sense of what is happening and how to fix it."
"Andy has a special gift for teaching; patient, thorough, and incredibly knowledgeable. He made the entire school non threatening and pleasurable. My golf game and I THANK you for a wonderful experience. A very satisfied student."
"Thank you Ned, the experience was great as usual. I will be back, hopefully with some of my friends."
"Hi Ned, thank you again because I spent 3 beautiful days with a great PGA Professional, Andy. He completely changed my game and yesterday shot a 76 at We Ko Pa. Everyone in the organization was friendly and made for an enjoyable time. I am marketing your school because everyone I play with asks who was the PRO?"

"Ned, the trip was very worthwhile. Andy was much more than I expected, a terrific teacher and an excellent "shrink". And boy do I need a good one. Andy is perhaps the best golf teacher I have ever gone to for instruction. He was able to teach in my language and at my pace. You guys have an outstanding school and I will be back. I'm handing out business cards like 'hot cakes'."
"Thanks, Ned - what a wonderful experience it was. Andy is an excellent instructor and I have already STRONGLY recommended him to a friend up here who is planning a trip to Scottsdale this winter. He and I went to Ledbetter Academy in Whistler, BC a few years back and I thought Andy was far more practical, was much better at diagnosing my flaws, and taught me the changes in a way I could grasp."

Hi Ned, wanted to thank you personally for encouraging me to visit the Golf School-a great experience. I understand now why you were so confident I would learn and enjoy. It was of great value in every way, exceeded my expectations and I shall certainly return. The whole program runs like clockwork, and I’m fully aware that this is due to your and Andy’s efforts. There is a Zen saying “When the student is ready the Master will appear”. How true.
Andy, on behalf of Tina and myself, I want to thank you for your instruction and sharing of yourself with us. It was a sentinel event in our golf life. Your hands-on instruction was brilliant. Wow! We are able to do things that have always frustrated us in the past. Coming to Golf Schools of Phoenix was perfect –a treat and pleasure that exceeded all expectations.
Joel and Tina Silidker
Ned, I thoroughly enjoyed your school again. I plan to return next year. Thanks.
I wanted to thank you, Ned, and all the staff for providing an excellent and enjoyable program. To top it off I shot a 43 on the front nine yesterday morning, my best ever. Attending your school was well worth the 25,000 mile round trip. Hope to see you again.
Dr. James Carlson
I just had to take time to let you know how impressed I was with your school. I have taken lessons before, but after attending your school have decided they just do not compare.

We very much enjoyed your school and are planning to attend next year. Being a veteran of seven golf schools, I can truly say I enjoyed your instruction more than any previous school.
Can’t wait to get back! Had a great time and met some fine people.
Congratulations on achieving recognition again as one of the best 25 golf schools in America. Based on my experience this was well deserved. I eagerly look forward to another session when my schedule permits.

Hi Ned – the whole experience of Golf School was wonderful. Andy did a great job and ia such a positive instructor. I will be back! Thanks again for the great accommodations and training.
Had a great trip as usual and came away with yet even greater appreciation for the game. Andy worked his magic and we’re all excited about hitting the Minnesota links with our new and improved approach to the game.
Ned, You can not imagine what a wonderful time I had at your school. My expectations were surpassed by far. Andy is a wonderful teacher, he is wise, patient and knowledgeable. Your organization and attention to all my emails and inquiries were extremely helpful, and on top of all that, my wife had a wonderful time in Scottsdale.
Please give my regards to Andy… he did an excellent job. I can hardly wait for the snow to melt and golf season to begin. I do intend to recommend your school highly and will become a repeat customer.
Hi Ned, thank you for the chance to meet and learn from Andy, real great and fun guy to get lessons from. We have not stopped telling our friends of the fun time we had with Andy and the trip to Scottsdale. We intend to visit next winter.
