 I'm Barney Beard a USGTF Master Teaching Professional.  Golf is my passion.  I have been a student of the game of golf since childhood. From the first time I picked up a golf club in 1964 there isn't anything I had rather do or any place I had rather be than on the golf course. I love the sights, smells and sounds of golf.  I love the feel of a well struck 7 iron as I watch the ball fly to the middle of the green and settle by the pin.  There's nothing else like it is there?

 I believe there is no "one size fits all" in golf instruction.  Each student is an individual.  I take each student from where they are and help them become better.  I do my best to avoid swing changes.  I work in the beginning around the edges to help the student become the best they can be with the skills they have!


I teach at Lady Lake Driving range on Rolling Acres Road located between the Villages woodworking shop and the soccer fields.  It is golf cart accessible from the Villages.  I teach private lessons only.  However couples and friends are welcome to share the time!  Your first lesson with me, Barney Beard, is always complimentary.  All lessons are by appointment only.


Play Often, Have Fun, Respect the Game!
