Professional Golf Instruction
Santee Cooper Resort Golf Lessons
Rick Frye, PGA
Head Golf Professional, Santee Cooper Country Club
Director of Instruction, Santee Cooper Resort
Rick Frye is a Quarter Century Club Class A member of the PGA of America and has been teaching the game of golf for more than 30 years. He has worked with thousands of students of all skill levels to help them become better players and get more enjoyment out of their time on the course. He welcomes the opportunity to work with you whether you are a beginner or an expert golfer.
Rick’s philosophy on teaching is to work with students in a relaxed manner, allowing them to feel at ease and comfortable in the learning environment. Solid fundamentals are the basis for having a repeatable golf swing, so there is an emphasis on understanding the importance of a good grip, posture and alignment before you even start the club back. All great golfers don’t swing the same way, but what all great golfers do is set up and swing their own same way every time. That is the goal when Rick works with you – solid fundamentals with an efficient and repeatable swing.
Rick is also excellent with short game instruction, whether chipping, pitching, bunker play or putting. If you aren’t spending half of your practice time on short game basics, then you need to rethink your practice schedule. The guys who play for a living on tour know the importance of mastering this phase of your game for success in scoring, and it will serve you well, too.
Rick is available at your convenience, but please try to schedule at least a day in advance to insure availability, as he is often busy with his duties as Head Golf Professional at Santee Cooper Country Club. Use of the lighted driving range at Lake Marion Golf Course provides the flexibility to select times that work for you, whether early, late or in the middle of the day.
