Lessons offered from June 18 – August 15, 2024

As part of our all-inclusive package during family season, Fair Hills offers sports lessons in water-skiing, tennis, golf, sailing and swimming. Lessons are given by qualified instructors and are suitable for all skill levels and ages.


Facilitated by two experienced instructors, lessons are 20 minutes each. Learn a new technique or brush-up on your skills. Our instructors can help you water-ski, wake board or slalom. Lessons are taught Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.


Taught by a experienced tennis “pro,” lessons are 30 minutes each and can be given to up to four people at a time. Lessons can cover a variety of skills or can focus on mastering just one!  Finesse your serve or challenge our pro to a match; the lesson is catered to you! Lessons are taught Monday – Friday either in the morning or afternoon for 4 hours.


Sail away with our qualified sailor and enjoy the breeze on Pelican Lake and the view from the open water! Lessons are 30 minutes each and can accommodate up to four people. Lessons are taught 3 days a week from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.  Sailing is weather dependent.  If there is a time we cannot safely do lessons, we will carry over to another time.


Instructed by our qualified “pro”, lessons are 30 minutes each and can be given to up to four people at a time. Taught on the driving range at Wildflower Golf Course, just across the street from the resort, a variety of skills can be addressed and lessons are for all ages and abilities. Lessons are taught two days a week.


Water, water everywhere, so get some practice in with our instructor. Taught in the big pool, lessons are 20 minutes each and given to one individual at a time. For all ages and abilities, our teacher will turn anyone into a fish! Lessons are given 2-3 days per week.


The newest sensation at Fair Hills, the courts are well loved!  While we don’t teach official pickleball lessons, we do hold clinics for two different age groups a few times a week.  As well as offering pickleball tournaments, the clinics are a great time to hone your skills, or work on new ones.  You do not have to sign-up for the clinics, just show up to the courts when they are happening on the activity schedule.

Lesson Sign-Ups

Lesson sign-ups are handled with a lottery system. Every guest at Fair Hills is eligible to enter the lottery for a lesson slot in each of the five sports. When signing up for the lottery, your name is entered into the bucket for which you correspond: have not yet had a lesson, have had one lesson, have had more than one lesson. These buckets only correspond to lessons given that specific year and that specific week at Fair Hills. The lottery is held Sunday – Thursday at 4:30 p.m. in the lobby. Sign-ups are done nightly for the next day (Sunday for Monday, Monday for Tuesday, etc.) Typically those who want lesson slots will get 2-5 lessons in the respective sport for the week. Some weeks have a higher demand for lessons than others. After the lottery, if there are open lesson slots, they may be filled on a first come, first served basis. Detailed lottery rules are available at the front desk and during the lottery.
