Dear Donna,
Guy and I wanted to express our appreciation to you for the excellent instruction we received at Pine Needles.  You are a gifted
instructor; you tailored your instruction to meet our different skill and ability levels, focused on things we could do that would
immediately improve our game, encouraged us when we got tired or discouraged and used a variety of teaching aids and
techniques to make the instruction meaningful.  The format of having lots of instruction and practice in the morning, then putting
everything together on the course in the afternoon was helpful to us.   

We enjoyed the classes and the ease with which you related to us.  We are singing your praises here in Corolla and hope we can
return next year for a refresher class.

Sincerely yours,

Nita and Guy Sides
