Generate the Power

pro with student Susan Stafford’s Golf Schools for women, encourages women of all abilities to participate in the game of golf for self-satisfaction and enjoyment. The Roland Stafford Golf School owes it longevity and continuous high quality standards to Susan’s leadership and vision. Her interpretation of, and extension on her late husband’s, Roland Stafford, teaching method, teaches women how to generate the power needed in a golf swing to hit the ball farther.

Dear Women,

Learning to play golf has been one of the greatest joys of my life. It has opened doors for new friendships, created travel opportunities and has kept me physically and mentally fit. Because of its perplexity, golf is a personal challenge. I set attainable goals, and when reached, they build my confidence and self-esteem.Susan Stafford

The Roland Stafford Teaching Method is particularly successful with women. The arms and body work together to generate the power needed in the golf swing. This movement applies to women of all sizes and athletic ability and is the key to hitting the ball farther. We’ll show you how to reach your potential with positive thoughts rather than restrictive thoughts such as “keeping your head down” or “keeping your left arm straight”.

As the popularity of golf continues to rise, we at the Roland Stafford Golf Schools have a sensible approach to this challenging game with lots of mental spin and a good clean focus on fun versus fury.

In a special effort to encourage more women to participate in the game of golf we have set aside the following dates at our Windham location to make your learning experience the best ever. Three days will give us plenty of time for play on the golf course.

"Susan, I want to thank you for being such a wonderful golf instructor. It was so good to have your gentle mentoring and guidance. Plus, I enjoyed our foursome so much. And as a voice teacher, as well, as performer, 6 days and nights a week at the Metropolitan Opera Company, I am always most grateful for mentors. I have so many famous musical mentors, but as my 2nd passion (golf) you were my ideal mentor as a golf professional. THANK YOU."

Take care, and thanks again.
