Golf Instruction for Juniors and Adults

Working with golfers for more than 35 years, Mike Barge's students appreciate his balanced approach to instruction - focusing on swing mechanics, while also recognizing a golfer’s "feel" for the game. Depending on the goals of the golfer, Mike prefers to work with a golfer's existing swing before rebuilding from scratch. He believes that consistency and long term improvement is found when a golfer understands their swing well enough to make corrections on their own.


Ask any golfer in the Twin Cities who has had instruction and there's a good chance they're familiar with Mike Barge Golf Instruction. His steady, thoughtful, and practical approach to golf instruction has made him one of the top golf instructors in the country. Whether you are picking up a club for the first time, or you are a low handicapper trying to shave off a few more strokes, Mike will help you reach your goals.

Mike Barge Golf Tips









I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Mike Barge since I joined Hazeltine back in the spring of 2000. Aside from being one of the top teaching professionals in the country, Mike is an incredible friend and mentor to so many at HNGC. His ability to clearly communicate and simplify his teaching points helps members to quickly improve their swing mechanics and overall game.

Mike Barge not only understands "the golf swing" he gets to know your golf swing and helps you figure out how to fix your swing while you're playing. Best of all, you won't spend all season working on your "new swing." He's helped with me, my wife, and my oldest son and we all agree, you won't find anyone better than Mike Barge.

I have been with Mike for about 4 years now. From the very beginning he has helped transform my game to a whole different level. Mike is an amazing teacher, and on top of that, an amazing person.
