Golf Lessons in the Eugene-Springfield Area
We offer a variety of different options from 30 minutes of individual instruction to 9-hole playing lessons or group instruction with one of our Teaching Professionals.
While other teaching facilities try to get you to swing like a tour pro, our emphasis is more personal; we want to maximize your abilities. Our individual lesson programs are just that, individualized attention, whether you are new to the game or a low handicap golfer.
9 Hole Playing Lesson
Head out to the course and get a lesson on your game from tee to green. Learn different shots, course management, and how to address the mental aspects of the game.
Available to players aged 18 and younger. Help your junior get a better feel for the game with a private 30-minute lesson from a certified golf professional.

Nic Sherman grew up in Springfield, Oregon and graduated from Springfield High School in 1988. He met his future wife between his Junior and Senior years at SHS. After High School, he attended the University of Oregon and Southern Oregon University. His family moved to Ashland in 1995, and Nic took his first job in the golf industry that spring at a local 9-hole par 3 course. That fall, he took an Assistant position at Oak Knoll GC in Ashland Oregon. He worked at Oak Knoll for 5 years, until the fall of 2000 and the birth of his daughter. The family then relocated to Medford, Oregon for 2 years, then back to Springfield to be closer to grandparents. Nic took a position at Fiddlers Green Golf Center as a Club Fitter in November of 2003 and stayed there working in several capacities until accepting the Head Golf Professional position at Pine Ridge Golf Club in May of 2017.
Nic’s background in the golf business is both wide and deep. It spans 28 years in many different types of positions in the industry. He is extremely excited to lead the team at Pine Ridge Golf Club.
