|I wanted to personally thank you for organizing a great golf school this week at Barona Valley Ranch and Casino with Steve Bean.
This was my first golf school and it exceeded all my expectations. The pro, Steve Bean, has been great. I was very nervous prior to
attending but Steve put me at ease immediately. The teaching format and curriculum has been insightful and most importantly,
performance based. I have increased my putting, short and long game 10x (at least). Steve's ability to explain the golf swing and
adjust my swing is a testament to his talent. The use of video has also been helpful to not only 'feel' the golf swing but also see the
results of a swing -- the positive and negative. I am looking forward to my final day of school on Thursday and more importantly
taking my new skills and confidence back to SF to further my golf game. Thanks again for your help and Steve's expertise and

My father and I booked Southern California Golf Schools for a 3 day golf school. My father is a high handicapper and I am an average
golfer. I have to say we were incredibly pleased with this school. Not only with the improvements it made to both our games, but the
instruction by Steve Bean was second to none. I have had several lessons and none of which came close in comparison with the
instruction we both received. Steve is a very humble, helpful, motivating, and an excellent teacher as I am sure all of his teaching staff
members are. The package we received was well worth the money spent. The room and facilities were incredible and exceeded our
expectations. Once again I give this school a 5 out of 5. Throughly pleased and it took a number of strokes off my game and my
fathers as well. Thanks again Steve !!!!

Today was the best practice I've had since the golf school. When working on my new swing plane. I hit my Driver, mid
and low irons really well.
Up date: Everything has worked out well. Greatest improvement in my game has been the short game after working on
that nice loft lob shot within forty yards of the pin. I'm getting a lot of compliments on my overall shot improvement.

The Barona Golf School was an awesome experience. The facility and the golf instruction were second to none.
Thanks so much for all you attention you gave us. We will see you again next year in March. Sign us up now!

Both Betty and I had the best time. We will highly recommend your golf school to all our friends and members at the
club. You made it so easy to understand the changes that we needed to make in order to become better golfers.

The golf school at Black Gold was great, Sean did a great job. He was very professional and made learning so easy.
Please tell him thanks.

Steve, coming from south east Texas, it was really nice to visit such a nice play like the Barona Casino Resort .
The weather, the views, WOW. We have such a wonderful time. We can't tell you how much we enjoy working with
you on both the range as well as the golf course.

We had a great time. Steve, our teacher was fantastic - the best teacher we've ever had. The hotel and the golf course was
very nice too. We will highly recommend both the golf school as well as the Barona Golf Resort whenever we get a chance!

Steve, Thank you again for the 3 day golf school at La Quinta. I am starting to see some consistent results. Kinda fun.

Hey Steve. I'm in Hawaii now. .... Have played three times and never hit the ball more consistent. Can't putt to save my life...
But hit first nine greens today and was on average 12 feet away from pin .... So fun. My keys are keeping my hands
together, tempo, make a full turn and finish every swing ala Couples. Now when I get that putting confidence down I
could be really good. Really enjoying the fixes.
Just wanted to tell you that Lydia and I had a very enjoyable experience at your 2 day golf school at Barona Resort in San
Diego. Our instructor, Fred was outstanding, even better than we had hoped for. He was pleasant to be with and a great
teacher. We both felt we learned a lot and our golf games will be better because of the staff at San Diego Golf Schools.

I was late getting to my lesson.
My GPS unit led me to the wrong exit and I had not been there before. Great start, I thought! I bought a large bucket of
balls and went to the practice range where Steve was hitting some balls and waiting for me. He could not have been more
gracious in accepting my apologies for being late. He asked me where I was at in terms of my swing and what I would like
to get out of the lesson. I said that I had recently been playing a little better after a year or more trying to recovering from my
Golf Tec series of lessons, which had set me, back $1100 and took me from about a 13.0 to my present 20.0 Handicap.
Steve had me hit a few shots and then began by pointing out the strengths of my swing. That really surprised me.
In all of the years of off and on golf lessons, no instructor had ever started by out pointing out my strengths! He said that
I only needed some relatively minor adjustments and that I had strong potential for playing much better golf than I had been.
I soon learned that Steve Bean who has had 31 years of experience teaching golf and has been associated with some terrific
golf schools and famous instructors. I was not surprised. His keen eye in analyzing my swing and showing me corrections
assured me right off and I knew I had come to the right place that was on Monday. On Thursday I played and was even par through
four holes with a birdie on the first. I holed out an 8 iron on the 12th hole and shot the lowest score I had shot in months!
Steve gave me some great tips for practicing an improved swing and gave me confidence in my swing that I hadn't’ had
for a couple of years. I hope this is just the beginning to a path with Steve to a greatly improved golf game.
Thanks again Bill
Steve: I made it home and can't wait to go play on Tuesday. Thank you so much for all you taught me, your patience,
watching carefully everything I did on each swing like my grip, set up, etc. Going over it over and over and getting it thru
my thick scull in such a nice way is so appreciated. Also, thank you for believing in me that I could learn. I had no idea what to
expect and only hoped for a fraction of what I got. You are an amazing teacher and this is the best choice I could have
ever made for learning to play golf. I really believe last Friday was my first real lesson and I will always remember this
experience which you helped make wonderful for me. Again, I can't thank you enough for your professionalism,
determination to help me, and make me believe that with lots of practice I will be able to play the game well.
My wife and I just got back from an awesome 3-day golf school at the Barona Casino & Golf Resort in San Diego.
Our instructor, Steve Bean, was the best! We both improved dramatically with his guidance. Steve's style was a good fit
for both of us. He was positive, attentive, and professional. We laughed, learned, improved and generally had a great time.
The Barona Golf Resort was first rate as well. The golf course, the hotel, and casino facilities were each a pleasure.
We are looking forward to doing this all over again soon!
