“My son who is now 15 has been taking 3 to 4 lesson per year with Chris for the last several years. Great teacher for juniors. I’m a member of a local country club and have tried several other instructors and he is the best. Gives him one or two things to work on after each visit and doesn’t try to oversell the lessons. Best value in Charlotte.”  — Rhodes K.

I highly recommend Chris Leatherman for lessons. He watched me hit 10 balls from different angles and suggested 2 changes: one to my grip and one to my swing. After 20-30 balls I was hitting the ball better than ever. I hold about an 8 handicap. After my lesson I went and played 9 holes and shot 1 under! AMAZING! I’ll get a lesson from him once a month now.”  — Matt B.
