Safety protocol regarding Covid 19

Golf Update, addressing safety concerns in regards to the Corona virus (June 1, 2020)
Click here to see our Junior Golf Summer program beginning in June

Hello from Lake Isle CC. I hope everyone is managing through these unique times. I’m reaching out to let you know that the Lake Isle Golf Course and Kevin Chin Golf are open. 

When I started this program 19 years ago at Lake Isle I knew I enjoyed golf and teaching golf to both kids and adults.  So, it made sense to start a “family golf learning program.” With so much support from many of you, the local community and the Lake Isle members, we’ve been able to help many people learn and enjoy playing golf. 

For as far back as I can remember, I have used GOLF as an acronym to describe our program. Get Outside! Learn and FUN! I think that statement is necessary now more than ever.

My staff and I are available for private and semi-private lessons.  

We have just listed out upcoming Fall Junior Golf Program Classes!
Classes are 1-hour and for age groups:
• Ages 7-11
• Ages 10-15

The steps we are taking to be as socially responsible as possible are:
• Only 4 students and 1 staff. (Some exceptions)
• Staff will keep a 6-foot distance or wear masks. 
• Students will be required to bring a mask
• Students must bring their own golf equipment
• We can use a separate entrance from the general public during busy times.
• Walking only, staff will have a cart.


Check our classes for an array of golf lessons for all ages and all ability levels.

Open to the public!

The Kevin Chin Golf Philosophy

The direction of our lesson plans will depend on the student’s available time and energy to put into setting achievable measurable goals. Most situations call for good explanations which helps the student understand and build off of the info given rather then just a list of things to remember (especially if the list contradicts itself).

Learn how to practice productively! For those of you who do great practicing, but can’t do it well on the course, we have to get you to bridge the gap from the range to the course. I have exercises that simulate playing from the range and we can practice on the course.

That’s My Boy!! Tommy Chin.
Always follow through, son. I Love You! 🙂

Google Reviews and Testimonials from previous Kevin Chin Golf Students!

  • Kevin is a great teacher. I played golf for a number of years, but was never any good. After a summer of lessons with Kevin and some practice, my golf game improved dramatically and I am having a lot more fun on the golf course. Not only does he explain how to correctly swing a golf club, but he explains why the swing is correct. He will give you the necessary tools to succeed out on the golf course. I took 1 hour Adult private lessons with Kevin and I recommend them to anyone that either wants to learn how to golf or learn how to improve their game. His personalty is always great, he is a laid back guy and his lessons were always fun.
  • Kevin is a very knowledgable instructor and he is very attentive. The camp is a good mix of teaching technique, playing on the course and participating in golf related games. Overall this golf camp is a better experience than other available golf camps in the area. I rate it 5/5
  • Kevin is very knowledgeable about the game and caters his teachings to you specifically. His lessons have a very personalized feel and he breaks it down so you know what improvements can be made and also why to provide a better understanding. His lessons have helped my game and I can't recommmend him enough as a golf instructor.
  • I took my first lesson with Kevin today. I have been playing golf for 50 years. I think I have found my Sensei. It is not easy to teach an old dog new tricks, but an hour with Kevin was an eye-opener.
