Have you ever wondered what it would be like to learn how to play golf from a professional? Are you ready to take your golfing skills to the next level? The Shane Blankenship School of Golf is ran by PGA teaching professional, Shane Blankenship, a Gateway PGA Assistant Player of the Year (2009, 2011, 2012 & 2013), Qualifier and participant of 12 PGA National Championships, and a participant on the NGA Hooters Tour, Adams Tight Lies Tour, and PGA Tour Qualifying School. Rounding out the Old Kinderhook team is Head Golf Professional, Jason Woods, and Assistant Golf Professional Greg Koenig.
Each lesson is taught on Old Kinderhook’s Tom Weiskopf signature golf course, a 6,726-yard par 71 featuring zoysia tees and fairways with large bentgrass greens that is the perfect course for seasoned golfers and amateur players alike.
During each lesson, Shane, Jason, or Greg will teach you the core fundamentals of golf — grip, posture, and alignment — and help you build and improve your game from the ground up, using video analysis with V1 software and professional techniques.
Shane Blankenship: “Golf is 80% mental and 30% physical. That’s why I want my students to understand ball flights, divot directions, and the correlation between the two. This allows the student to have more knowledge of their swing and what’s going on when it’s not up to par.”

“I signed up for Shane’s series of lessons in early April. I just finished lesson 5, the results have been incredible. Shane has a very keen eye, he has made some subtle changes that are reaping huge benefits. I can’t express how excited I am to see how good this guy is going to make me by the end of the season. If you’re serious about your golf game and want to take it to the next level, I would strongly encourage you to set up a series of lessons from Shane Blankenship.”

“All of your staff is excellent. We are especially grateful to Jasen Jones at the hotel. He went out of his way to help my mother find a power cord she had lost in a previous visit, and was very helpful with information and with checking out. Jasen is a great asset. We also appreciate everyone at the golf course. It is amazing.”
