Had a great first lesson with Steve. His creative use of metaphors helped me understand different parts of the swing. 1 hour with
him and my form has changed dramatically. Looking forward to more sessions, I can only imagine how much more I will learn.

Steve has been very patient and helpful. His insights have helped me to make a few adjustments that have improved my game.
It's nice that he takes videos of my swing and debriefs with me. Thanks, Steve!

I’m new to golf and I really enjoyed my first lesson with Steve today. He was patient and encouraging so I was able to relax and not
feel awkward or uncomfortable. I learned proper grip, stance and swing and already feel like I’m hitting the ball better.
Looking forward to my next lesson!

I bought the 3 pack of lessons and I'm honestly so blown away after even the first lesson. Steve is a fantastic teacher and incredibly
knowledgeable about all the different type of swings. I came in pretty jacked up with an over the top swing that was pushing my long
irons and especially driver with a massive slice. After about 30 minutes with Steve, the slice was a just a playable fade and was even
getting some baby draws. It was super helpful to see all of the angles and video of my swing and have someone walk through it with me..
He uses practical tips and keeps the swing simple. The lesson has me more excited about golf in a really long time and I look forward to
my next lesson with Steve.

Steve is an excellent instructor. I am brand new to golf so I wanted to make sure I started correctly. Steve explained and showed me all
the basics on grip, stance, and swing and made corrections during my first lesson. I feel like I am on the right path to learn the proper
mechanics of my golf swing. Looking forward to my next session.

I have been golfing for a couple of years now, and have never been great by any means, nor have I ever put up overwhelming scores. I
wanted to really break down my swing, which I why I sought to seek help from Steve. He managed to break down each individual part of
my swing, and gave me more confidence in my game following just one session. I would highly recommend Steve to all skill levels.

Thanks Daniel. Great job on your 1st session

Today I had my first lesson with Steve, he is a great teacher. To me explaining to someone how to tweak their grip, hip movement, or
stance would be extremely hard. Steve explains it in such a way that it is easy to grasp. By the end of the lesson I noticed some major
differences in my swing mechanics and the travel of the ball. I can’t wait for my second lesson and continuing to learn from Steve.

Steve was an amazing teacher and I feel like my swing got much better in just 1 session. He looks at every swing you do and tries to
find errors and tries to correct it. I had a great time!

Coach Steve goes out of his way to make sure the kids have fun while practicing golf! His easy going style allows my kids to feel
confident and learn without feeling stressed! He has been coaching my 3 kids for several years now- I love that the rates are so
reasonable and their golf skills continue to improve! I love that they can be comfortable on a golf course- I think that will be very
helpful for them in the future! I highly recommend Coach Steve!

My experience with Steve Bean was phenomenal. He honed in on key elements of my game that I had no idea I was doing wrong. Through
video he allowed me to key in on my critical power leaks. The on course session was also great. Steve was extremely helpful in getting me
squared up to the target and giving me awesome pointers along the way. Steve Bean is a legitimate golf instructor and I would definitely
recommend him to anyone looking to lower there golf scores and handicap.

Just want to say thank-you for the lessons, with your easy to understand instructions and video feedback I was able to shoot a 75 at Apple
Valley Golf Club. I look forward to more lessons and learning about the short game. Guess you can teach an  old dog new tricks. I'm a 10
hdcp now but expect to drop to 5 or less this year.

I just had a five hour golf school with Steve Bean at Jurupa Hills. . I wanted something that was more like a golf school vs. a lesson. I have
had many lessons over the years and "none" compared to this in terms of the difference it made in my game. I think it takes something
special to be an effective instructor and Steve Bean has that. His observations and corrections  made an immediate improvement to every
aspect of my game from tee to pin. I'm already planning to go back once I have a chance to work on what I've learned.

I just want to let you know how much we enjoyed our experience with Steve Bean at Pala Mesa Resort. I have gone to high end golf schools
in the past conducted by well known teachers, including Jim Flick,  Jack Lumpkin, Eddie Jones and Jamie Mulligan. Although Steven is not
as well known, he is right up there with them in his ability to teach golf. We plan to attend another one of your schools next year.       
Thanks again,

Keith and I just returned from San Vicente Golf  Resort and our 3 day golf school. We both learned a lot about our golf swing and the
things we need to work on. The course was nice, fun and presented us with plenty of challenge, risk and reward. Our instructor Steve Bean
was great.  He has a perfect personality for teaching. No ego, good sense of humor and very patient. He would use different tools and
techniques and allow each of us the opportunity to feel, visualize and learn in multiple ways in hopes we would find something that
worked for each of us.  When we tried to take that instruction out to the golf course each day he just gave us a few tips but allowed us to
enjoy the game and not get tied down thinking about the 15 things we needed to think about to hit a good shot. If I was going to take
further instruction I would absolutely use Steve again. Each day we would work with Steve he used tools, techniques, aids and real
instruction, Keith and I both learned the importance of rotation and the need to have your core pull you through the golf swing . We both
enjoyed working with Steve.

My father and I booked a three day golf school with Southern California Golf Schools. My father is a high handicapper and I am an
average golfer. I have to say we were incredibly pleased with this school. Not only with the improvements it made to both our games,
but the instruction by our pro, Steve Bean was second to none. I have had several lessons and none of which came close in comparison
with the instruction we both received from Steve and his staff at Southern California Golf Schools. Steve is a very humble, helpful,
motivating, and an over all excellent teacher. The package we received was well worth the money spent. The room and facilities were
incredible and exceeded our expectations. Once again I give this school a 5 out of 5  stars. I was Throughly pleased and it took quite a
few strokes off my game and my father's game as well. Thanks again for your time, effort and motivating teaching style.

Bobby & Gerry Hinz

I wanted to personally thank you for organizing a great golf school this week at Barona Valley Ranch and Casino with Steve Bean. This
was my first golf school and it exceeded all my expectations. The pro, Steve Bean, has been great. I was very nervous prior to attending
but Steve put me at ease immediately.  The teaching format and curriculum has been insightful and most importantly, performance
based. I have increased my putting, short and long game 10x (at least).  Steve's ability to explain the golf swing and adjust my swing
is a testament to his talent.  The use of video has also been helpful to not only 'feel' the golf swing but also see the results of a swing -
the positive and negative. I am looking forward to my final day of school on Thursday and more importantly taking my new skills
and confidence back to SF to further my golf game. Thanks again for your help and Steve's expertise and professionalism.

* Today was the best practice I've had since the golf school. When working on my new swing plane.  I hit my Driver, mid and low
irons really well.

* Up date:   Everything has worked out well  Greatest improvement in my game has been ball flight the short game after working
on that nice loft lob shot within forty yards of the pin.  I'm getting a lot of compliments on my overall shot improvement.

Thanks  again

* The Barona Golf School was an awesome experience. The facility and the golf instruction were second to none.
Thanks so much for all you attention you gave us. We will see you again next year in March. Sign us up now!

Ed and Betty

* Both Betty and I had the best time. We will highly recommend your golf school to all our friends and members at the
club. You made it so easy to understand the changes that we needed to make in order to become better golfers.
Thanks again

* The golf school at Black Gold was great, Sean did a great job. He was very professional and made learning so easy.
Please tell him thanks.

Alex and Rebecca
* Steve, coming from south east Texas, it was really nice to visit such a nice play like the Barona Casino Resort . The weather,
the views, WOW. We have such a wonderful time.  We can't tell you how much we enjoy working with you on both the range as well
as the golf course.

Brian Suhr, Guam USA
* We had a great time. Steve, our teacher was fantastic - the best teacher we've ever had. The hotel and the golf course was very nice too.
We will highly recommend both the golf school as well as the Barona Golf Resort whenever we get a chance!

Hey Steve.
I'm in Hawaii now. .... Have played three times and never hit the ball more consistent.  Can't putt to save my life...But hit first nine greens
today and was on average 12 feet away from pin .... So fun.  My keys are keeping my hands together, tempo, make a full turn and finish
every swing ala Couples.   Now when I  get that putting confidence down I could be really good.  Really enjoying the fixes.

Thanks, Scott

I was late getting to my lesson.  

My GPS unit led me to the wrong exit and I had not been there before.  Great start, I thought!  I bought a large bucket of balls and went to
the practice range where Steve was hitting some balls and waiting for me.  He could not have been more gracious in accepting my
apologies for being late. He asked me where I was at in terms of my swing and what I would like to get out of the lesson.  I said that I had
recently been playing a little better after a year or more recovering from my Golf Tec series of lessons, which had set me, back $1100 and
took me from about a 13.0 to my present 20.0 Handicap. Steve had me hit a few shots and then began by pointing out the strengths of my
swing.  That really surprised me.  In all of the years of off and on golf lessons, no instructor had ever started by out pointing out my
strengths! He said that I only needed some relatively minor adjustments and that I had strong potential for playing much better golf than
I had been.  I soon learned that Steve has had 31 years of experience teaching golf and has been associated with some terrific golf schools
and famous instructors.  I was not surprised.  His keen eye in analyzing my swing and showing me corrections assured me right off and
I knew I had come to the right place that was on Monday. On Thursday I played and was even par through four holes with a birdie on the
first.  I holed out an 8 iron on the 12th hole and shot the lowest score I had shot in months! Steve gave me some great tips for practicing an
improved swing and gave me confidence in my swing that I hadn't’ had for a couple of years.  I hope this is just the beginning to a path to
a greatly improved golf game. Thanks  for everything Steve

Bill Bosire

I made it home and can't wait to go play on Tuesday.  Thank you so much for all you taught me, your patience, watching Carefully
everything I did on each swing like my grip, set up, etc. Going over it over and over and getting it thru my thick scull in such a nice way
is so appreciated.  Also, thank you for believing in me that I could learn. I had no idea what to expect and only hoped for a fraction of
what I got. You are an amazing teacher and this is the best choice I could have ever made for learning to play golf.  I really believe last
Friday was my first real lesson and I will always remember this experience which you helped make wonderful for me. Again, I can't
thank you enough for your professionalism, determination to help me, and make me believe that with lots of practice I will be able to
play the game well.
