After School Coaching Sessions

After School (ages 7-9)

Our after school sessions utilize DiscoverGolf, a student first, game-based skill development system. Juniors will participate in games and activities inspired by the dynamic play of video games and the social nature and imagination of classic board games. DiscoverGolf’s core belief is that learning is only possible where emotionally led attention is present; affecting a juniors “state” before their “trait.” Deliberate play nurtures competency as game mechanics allow for self evaluation not normative comparison. In short…these games ROCK!

After School Sessions will resume in the fall 2021.

‘Skills, Drills & Play’ Saturday Junior Coaching Sessions

FAQ’s

In golf, short game shots including chipping and pitching are best learned on the golf course during golf lessons in Richmond, Virginia with Leighann Albaugh PGA professional

The most convenient way is by clicking click ‘book a lesson’ on the toolbar to the left of this screen. Please feel free to e-mail or phone if you have additional questions regarding availability. If you use email, please provide a brief synopsis of your golf game and some of the things you would like to work on in the lesson as well as a few days and times that work best for you.  If you phone me and get my voicemail, please leave a short message with your contact information and I will call you back to discuss further details.

It is always a good rule of thumb to arrive 10-15 minutes before each lesson.  This gives you an opportunity to stretch and hit a few balls beforehand so we can get started on time.  When you arrive, you will check in at the golf shop. They will provide you with a cart and directions to the range. 

Plan on bringing your clubs and your questions! My goal is to help you reach yours and our first lesson provides me with an opportunity to ‘get inside your head’ to figure out what you are thinking, feeling, perceiving and correcting any errant or inefficient mis-conceptions.

I would recommend wearing something similar to when you play on the golf course.  If you have never played golf at all, then a good rule of thumb is at minimum non-denim pants or shorts (or skorts for women) and a shirt with a collar that you can move around in.  Men should wear a collared shirt, ladies may wear shirts without collars as long as they are not sleeveless.  If you have golf shoes, you can wear them, otherwise a pair of sneakers is perfect.

Don’t let the fact that you do not have your own set of clubs deter you!  I have many different types of demo clubs you can use (and borrow for practice between lessons).  We can also discuss equipment during the first lesson and I will make recommendations and/or referrals to some of my “preferred” clubfitters in the area based on your goals, swing and budget.
