Testimonials & Accomplishments

I had never golfed in my life, but had been wanting to learn for awhile.  Barb was amazing Day #1 and made us feel like we had been friends forever. She immediately started teaching us golf etiquette and gave us instruction/education on the club itself. Things I would never think to ask, she told us. Each week, I learn more and more about the game of golf as well as some etiquette along the way.  It’s obvious golf is her passion and she WANTS us to have the same experience. I never imagined myself a “country club” girl, but feel apart of a group here!  And I have Barb to thank for that. After class, Barb’s Beginner Babes (the name we call ourselves:)) eat dinner and have drinks. It’s the best! 

  I’m learning so much and have fallen in love with golf thanks largely to Barb. I feel very fortunate to have met her and be apart of her Wednesday evening group!

This spring I signed up for beginner golf lessons with Barb! This was more than just beginner lessons! She taught us EVERYTHING! No question was dumb! From can I walk inside with my clubs to how to drive a golf cart, how to fix a divot, how to practice on the driving range, how to play golf fast and other very important golf etiquette! Knowing these tips and the example she set, I feel like I could golf with anyone and honestly feel ahead of the game in that regard!
Then there was the actual skills portion. The girls in my group, including myself had never golfed before and rarely held a club!  She would bring training tools and really help us understand the game and its complexity! We practiced and practiced and practiced!Barb always had a way of making it fun, and even now it’s our group’s favorite night of the week!

She has made me feel so welcome and comfortable and I could not have had a more wonderful experience with her! Barb is quite simply the best!

  • --- Barbara has been a huge part of our daughter's positive golf experience. They have worked together for the past few years and we have seen amazing growth in that time. Not just in the improvement in Shannon's golf swing, but also in her course management. Barbara brings her expertise to the kids in a fun and engaging way, challenging them and supporting them along the way. As Shannon plays in more competitive tournaments, Barbara has also been able to coach her on managing stress and playing her own game, which has helped tremendously with the mental aspect of golf. I cannot say enough great things about how Barbara and how great she is with developing the kids' entire golf game, taking them to whatever level they would like to play.  - Jill Gould (Shannon's mom)


    Congrats to Shannon, playing for Navy!

  • "Barbara Blanchar is the best coach and mentor I had for the past 9 years. She taught me how to play golf, how to smile and appreciate. Barbara can bring the best out of a person which helps on and off the golf course."– Hanule Sky Seo

  • "I love taking lessons from Barb, because she always gets me back on track when something is wrong with my swing. I learn by noticing how my swing feels, so Barb uses a teaching technique that specifically makes sense to me when she helps me. For instance, she lets me know when my club is pointing too much toward "the trees". As cheesy as it sounds, Barb is my mental coach as much as my golf pro. She knows that golf has a lot to do with your attitude, focus, and how you think. Golf lessons with her are really fun and rewarding. She explains things in a way that lets you just do them vs. thinking about them too hard. I'm a type A perfectionist who scrutinizes everything, so this is really helpful to me." - Abby Beckerdite

  • "Barbara has been the primary influence in helping me evolve from an average weekend golfer to a national champion with the Golf Channel Amateur Tour. Barbara’s lessons extend far beyond the traditional “full swing lesson” to include all aspects of golf. Our sessions integrate discussions on course management, mental game and tournament preparation along with traditional instruction on short game and full swing. Most importantly, Barbara’s positive teaching approach promotes increased confidence on the golf course leading to more enjoyment and lower scores!" - Dave Verhulst
