About Us



Teaching golf to players of all ages since 1983, Barrie Bruce Golf Schools is a complete instructional facility.

Each year, we help over 700 golfers learn the game, fine-tune skills, and make new friends in the process! Our instructors offer adults and juniors a friendly, hands-on approach to learning the game of golf. BBGS has 3 levels of adult instruction and extensive junior golf programs for ages 6-14.

Barrie Bruce, as a PGA Teaching Professional, is a strong supporter of the PGA’s Play Golf America and Get Golf Ready teaching programs and can be seen at many local New England Golf events.

Through teaching programs structured like Play Golf America, Barrie Bruce Golf Schools teaches everybody how to play golf: juniors, seniors, new-to-the-game novices, and experienced golfers. BBGS makes learning a great experience by combining fun, friends and fitness.

If you’re located in Massachusetts ( MA ) or New Hampshire ( NH ), come on down to the Barrie Bruce Golf Schools soon and GET YOUR GOLF ON!

BBGS encourages students to continue their playing experience through Golf Leagues, Adult tournaments, and many other special golf events throughout the season.

From ages 6-106, we encourage all golfers to come to our schools with ‘a pair of sneakers and a good attitude’.

What people are saying

Barrie has a unique ability and keen sense to detect any flaws in my swing, while patiently and thoroughly providing me with the mechanics to fix them and improve my game. I take his drills with me on the range and apply his techniques while competing on the course. I found out first hand why his reputation as the most complete and results oriented instructor in the region is rock solid. I am a Barrie Bruce student for life!
