Late/Cancellation – Every new student to Chicago School of Golf will receive a late/cancellation policy contract. This contract will state our very strict policy on cancellation. If you fail to contact your instructor about a cancellation you will be charged the fee stated in the contract.
Student Etiquette – Students are expected to behave and act accordingly on the golf course. This means that all student’s will dress in golf attire for every lesson (See Golf Attire Section) and hold themselves in a way that reflects well on Chicago School of Golf. Use of cellphones or other devices during a private or group lesson is prohibited. It is up to the instructor to cancel a lesson based on the behavior of a student without warning. If the lesson is canceled or the student is dismissed there will be no refund.
Parent Etiquette – At Chicago School of Golf we ask that parents are involved with their junior golfers outside of the lesson. It is very important for parents to push their junior golfers to practice and enjoy the game. However, we ask that for distraction purposes parents do not attend or observe the lesson. Parents may attend the last five minutes of a lesson to hear what their child is working on, so they are informed on how the student should practice. We also encourage parents to call the coach to discuss their child’s game.
Private Lesson Cancellation Policy Agreement:
Chicago School of Golf is committed to providing all of our students with exceptional service. When a student cancels without giving enough notice, they prevent another student from being seen.
Please call us at (708) 816-4653 by 2:00 p.m. two days prior to your scheduled appointment to notify us of any changes or cancellations. To cancel a Monday appointment, please call our office by 2:00 p.m. on Friday. If prior notification is not given, you will be charged full price for the missed appointment.

I met David about 4 years ago when he was at Green To Tee up at Glencoe Golf Club. I hired him to work with my son who wanted to try and be on the high school golf team. My son did make the team and then I decided to start taking lessons from David. In the last 2 years David has taken my handicap from 23 to 14.
My 14-year old son has worked with David for several years. David has helped him develop a very solid golf game; learning all the fundamentals as well as developing the confidence to compete. In addition, David has provided a great example of how to conduct oneself both on the course and in life.
In eighth grade my daughter decided to give up her other sports and start a completely new sport- that being golf. She started with David Maslen who taught her the basics from the ground up. She had never held a golf club before and David patiently and methodically taught her everything she needed to know about the game of golf.
I started to practice golf 5 years ago. Everything seemed difficult till I found David. Since then, my skills improved by a huge margin. I cannot recommend David enough; I send my two boys to the golf camps and it's so rewarding to see the progress.
Playing golf is one of the things I like the most but I never thought I can progress in this sport. David was the only instructor who proved be otherwise; golf is for everyone and we should all trust ourselves.
It's difficult to chose a sport from so many options when you have children. Luckily David's gold caps turned out to be the best solution for my family: I send them every year to the camps and my kids enjoy golf more than any other sport.
By age 15, Sophomore year, my daughter played on the varsity high school golf team. David would come to tournaments and support her during the golf season. He would review her play and focus lessons on her areas of greatest need. He is an encouraging, positive, and an incredibly knowledgeable coach. David sets his standards high and expects his students to put in the time to improve.
David is always kind, professional and encouraging. My wife and I also appreciate the outstanding communication David has with us and his insights into ways our son can continue to develop and improve. It has been a pleasure both to watch my son’s golf game become very good and to see all the success David is having!
I asked David if he would work with me and my friends and start a group clinic a few days a week during the winter. That was extremely successful and every clinic sold out each week. David is a great teacher.
