Group Instruction

University Ridge offers a variety of different group instruction classes throughout the golfing season to meet the needs of all types of golfers. The group size in all classes never exceeds five students in order to give each student enough personal time with the instructor. All group lessons are conducted on our newly remodeled practice facility which has a separate tee for instruction, a chipping green, and practice bunkers. Many of the sessions also include on-course instruction. If the class times don’t work out for your schedule you may set up a private class for the same price for three or more people.


University Ridge Golf Instruction

The instructor for all of our adult group classes is PGA Head Golf Professional, Ryan Wieme. Ryan has been an instructor at University Ridge for twelve seasons. His goal with group classes is to bring students with similar ability levels together to learn the game of golf in a fun and informative way. The small group size allows the students to ask questions more freely, get more one-on-one time with the instructor, and learn at their own pace. Ryan believes that these are all crucial elements to improve overall golfing ability. To contact Ryan about entering one of the classes below email him at rw2@athletics.wisc.edu or call (608) 497-4456.
