In one sense, to be nominated is indeed a honor in itself. Being acknowledged by your peers is a true testament to one’s abilities and accomplishments. Golf Digest did just that in compiling its list of the 15 Best Golf Instructors in CT. While popularity can never be ruled out as a factor, these instructors have undoubtedly earned their spots by having an innate ability to convey the components of the golf swing to their students.
Fairfield County dominates the list, holding 7 of the 15 spots. These top golf instructors predominately teach at private clubs. However, they all offer lessons to the general public.
So whether you are looking to learn how to play golf or shave a couple of strokes off your game, you may as well learn from the best.
