Private Lessons

The RCTA offers private and semi-private lessons with four experienced teaching pros. Froi, Maurice, Heyden or Gary can all improve your game and will focus on whatever you'd like to work on.

Private lessons are $95.00 per hour. For semi-private lessons, the cost increases by $30 per extra player. (2 players - $125; 3 players - $155; 4 Players - $185). 4 total players is the maximum. Extra players must pay the additional fee to the gate attendant upon arrival. Credit/virtual wallet is the preferred method, cash is also accepted.
