My wife and I attended the Advancing Bridge program 10/26 - 10/31 at Jekyll Island. We both thoroughly enjoyed the week and found it very beneficial. Craig Hemphill is an excellent instructor with a real talent for making difficult concepts easy to understand. He provided many excellent examples to further clarify the concepts in his presentation, and answered participants' questions clearly and patiently. Linda Arthur was wonderful in making sure that all of our needs were taken care of. The program was very well organized and the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is a delightful place to stay. We highly recommend this program!

--Absolutely wonderful program. Excellent instructor (Craig Hemphill). Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, organized, and patient. Responded well to questions. Adjusted instruction to the level of the group. Sought group input into what areas of bridge were to be covered. Provided emailed PDFs of all materials used in class. A+ --Wonderful program leader. Linda is very knowledgeable about the area, oriented us to it, gave suggestions for free time, and cautioned about life (snakes and alligators!) on the island. Went out of her way to respond to individual requests. She is organized, has a great sense of humor, and is an all-around delight! A+ --The Jekyll Island Club Hotel is a special place. The history and beauty of the hotel are first-rate. The views and grounds are beautiful; the rooms are comfortable; the food is interesting, varied, and delicious. The island provides an opportunity for exploration both by car and on foot. It is a most special place. This was my third time back to this program and this location. Need I say more? I hope to return again next year! A+

We had a great week! Nice participants, good interaction, great staff. We learned a lot. For some things we thought we knew, we got the complete story. We also got a lot of detail about things we had heard of, but did not have a clue about. My husband says he will now play Stayman and Jacoby transfers. Yeah!

An excellent program. You will learn a lot and be inspired to return home and practice, practice, practice!

The Jekyll Island Club Hotel was wonderful. Our bridge teacher, Alex Brough, was just superb! Using what I learned, I am looking forward to advancing my bridge skills here at home. And we met some really great people, which was the best part!

Well worth it. Make sure that you attend the program on Jekyll Island and stay at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, it was Outstanding.

This program is perfect if you want to learn more about bridge conventions and cues or if you are curious about duplicate bridge. The location is beautiful and the hotel is very quiet and comfortable.

Ann from Lookout Mountain, GA Number of programs attended: 3

I would highly recommend this program of advancing bridge to those whose really desire to work on and learn advancing bridge. The instructor Craig Hemphill is very passionate and good instructor of the lessons and Linda Arthur is sweet and very organized and helpful as a facilitator. It is an excellent program for advancing bridge players

Loved the program.

I can only speak in superlatives about Linda, Craig and the hotel accommodations. As a retired high school math teacher and intermediate bridge player, I say Craig knows how to teach. Since the course, I have used many things that Craig taught us. He was very patient and helpful with questions. Linda tried very hard to take care of all our needs and questions. With that said, the food at the hotel was unacceptable. I would not want to go to that place again. A mostly satisfied customer, Pearl. Say Hi to Craig and Linda.

Bridge on Jekyll Island, Feb 3 to 8, 2013 From Bernard Littman I felt that Craig's instructions were excellent. The level of the course was appropriate for intermediate. There were over one hundred hands in three days of duplicate tournaments; Craig provided a discussion for every one of them.

The facility was very nice. The Facilitator did a good job. The food was good. Jekyll Island was an interesting place to visit. Craig Hemphill should not be hired as the instructor again. He is incapable of teaching without going off on tangents, self-aggrandizing, going too fast, and not teaching on the level advertised. By his own admission, he is obsessed with bridge. He is probably a nice guy, but not a good teacher. We were incredibly disappointed with his instruction. Martha Patrick
