Rules and Regulations

Any student who requests an absence or who fails to attend a lesson within 24 hours of scheduled time slot will be considered absent, there will be no make-up lesson and the fee will not be refunded.
Expiration date can be extended under the following special circumstances, accompanied with the corresponding written proof.
a. If a student is experiencing serious illness and needs to be treated or quarantined for a longer period. Students must inform So Golf Academy at least 5 business days in advance with a hospital certificate and written application letter etc. Extensions will only be granted through written confirmation from So Golf Academy.
b. Lockdown or stay-home order issued by the government.
Lessons package purchased by students cannot be transferred to other types of lessons. For example, the purchased 1-on-1 package lessons will not be applicable to 1-on-2 lessons or group lessons. If you need to adjust the lesson category, students need to pay the required lesson package fee separately.
If a student needs to transfer the remaining lessons to another person, he/she must inform the Academy in advance, transfer of lesson will only be granted after the Academy has confirmed that it is still within the valid period. The transfer of the remaining lessons shall be subject to the remaining balance, not the remaining hours, and shall be transferred by converting to the corresponding number of lessons at the current rate of the Academy after confirmation. Note: A one-time fee of $80 will be deducted from the student's remaining balance for the transfer or extension of lessons.
Lesson Format Alternation Policy
Students registered for semi-private or group lessons seek to request for an absence; require the request to be more than 24 hours in advance, please refer to (see “Cancellation Policy"above).
Once the student (as mentioned above) has requested for an absence 24 hours in advance, the Academy will arrange the lesson time slot and adjust rates accordingly after negotiation with other students that attend the lesson together.
The lesson time slot remains unchanged, the attending students are charged at a rate base on the actual number of students who attend the lesson.
Example: If one student who was originally enrolled in a group lesson (3 students) request for a absence 24 hours in advance, the remaining two students will be charged at the rate of a semi-private lesson each.
Lesson time will be rearranged to a time slot when all the students are available to attend.
Any student who fails to request for an absence 24 hours in advance or fails to attend a lesson will have their fees deducted according to the cancellation policy, while other students will continue to attend the lesson on the original scheduled time slot with unchanged rates.
Students are not permitted to post any pictures or videos of the coach privately on any social media without his/her knowledge or consent to do so.
