Enjoy golf with your children




"Susan, John Jr. and I enjoyed the weekend with Rich as our golf instructor.  I went out on Monday at Mohansic Golf Course and shot an 84.  I was able to drive fairly well, eliminate triples, and reduce doubles to 3 holes.  The real good news for me was the birdie on the 9th hole, which for me has never been better than a bogey.  The learned principals of golf absolutely enabled this to happen; Grip, Levels, Connection and Tempo." 
John Regis….Yorktown Heights, New York

"As always, we had a great time. Tom is simply an amazing instructor - patient, knowledgeable and totally supportive! Let him know I had a string of six pars in a row yesterday. Look forward to seeing you again next year."
Ken and Hayley Kaplan...New York

"Susan, our second year, at your school with Colin was as great as the first.  My son Eric once again got a lot out of the instruction Colin provided.  I changed my pre-shot routine working with Colin to improve my alignment.  I played golf in an outing Monday, (yes 4 straight days of golf), and hit 10 fairways and 2 greens on par 3's.  We’re already looking forward to next year’s golf instruction." 
John & Eric Rostern….Holtsville, New York

"Thanks Susan, we had a great time and have lots to work on! Rich did a great job and really made learning a lot of fun! His anecdotes were amazing and got his message across even to our beginner. Have a wonderful summer." John Reefer…..Butler, Pennsylvania

"We can't thank you enough for a great weekend of golf. It didn’t feel like a school. If there is a better way to spend Father’s Day than playing golf with your child, I can’t think of what it might be."
Tim Hollister...Connecticut

"Just wanted to let you know what a great time my son Eric and I had at the Parent/Child golf school last week. After 31 years of playing the game I learned more from Colin in 2 days than ever before. My son was totally absorbed and I think the weekend and instruction cemented his love for the game."
John and Eric Rostern....Holtsville, New York

"The school was a tremendous help and I’m enjoying golf more than ever. I look forward to coming again with my son."
Emerson Dorsey…Maryland

"Our time spent with you at the Roland Stafford Golf School was priceless. We look forward to visiting you next year."
Luis Cotto…Virginia

"Susan thanks for hosting a great Parent/Child golfing weekend. For Cameron and me it was terrific as was our instructor Colin.  I finally can hit my driver!"
Craig MacKay….South Orange, New Jersey
