Scheduling Private Lessons at Baker National

Due to large call volumes, Baker has moved to online scheduling with a new software called Uschedule.  Please visit:   If you do not see any availability, it is because there are no openings available.  The software also allows you to add yourself to a waitlist (for a particular day) in case any time becomes available.  I only teach private lessons Monday-Friday.  Please leave detailed information in the notes field regarding what time of day you are available (and any additional notes regarding the lesson).  I will only reach out to you if an opening occurs that matches your request.  Please note that current and long-time students will take precedence on the waitlist.  

Private lessons can be scheduled for up to four people.  For numbers larger than four or for private golf groups we can customize a program that works for you, please contact Laura directly.
