Everybody has room for improvement, even the Pros will tell you that! Sabattus Disc Golf has offered lessons for a while, but a lot of folks took it to be an introduction to the sport for those unfamiliar with the game. While that is still an option, we have now expanded our lesson options to include more specialized training for the more seasoned players.
Recently Joe and Julie Polenchar attended a private driving lesson with our disc golf coach, Isaac, and had this to say about their experience.
"I wanted to write a quick note to share our recent experience taking a disc golf lesson with Isaac at Sabattus Disc Golf this past weekend. My husband and I took a lesson together focused on improving our driving. We have been playing casually for the last year and a half and wanted to be able to step up our game, with the aim of participating in some tournaments for beginners to have a little more competitive fun.
I am certainly the less experienced player between the two of us and Isaac was able to address and help both of us hone our own needs on the course. Isaac created a warm and supportive environment while observing us driving, offering helpful tips and suggestions, and playing through a few holes.
I know how tricky it must be to give constructive criticism to a beginner learning a sport but Isaac was a great help!
By the end of the day we were both driving more consistently and confidently than we had ever done before. We know we still have a lot of work to do, but with Isaac's guidance we are excited to keep improving. We learned great strategies for playing more thoughtful and effective rounds when Isaac played a few holes with us, and I can say I already enjoy my time on the course a little more since I am more confident and committed to playing correctly.
I would highly recommend the program and I hope to come back and take advantage of the lessons again.
Thank you for providing a unique service at a fantastic course. We hope to see you guys again soon."

We’re reaching an interesting time in disc golf. Where we’ve got a massive crop of talent at the top. Plenty of other touring pros cash frequently enough without scratching the top 25 in talent and can tour with their winnings and sponsorships.
So let’s take a step back from calling anything other than a win a failure. Improvements from year to year on a course could be a win for some of these players. Finishing top 10 should be considered good for young players. The days of players dominating and winning every single weekend are basically over. Competition is tight at the top, and it’s only getting better.
