CLBC Education & Training

Clear Lake Bridge Club Education & Training Programs are developed and supervised by Dave Glandorf who is dedicated to helping all players enjoy the game of bridge.

Classes and Labs are open to the public; they do not require membership to CLBC. All Education & Training offerings are made known to Club Members and Visitors via emails sent from Dave as a "Call for Enrollment"

Dave teaches classes on a Trimester basis throughout each year with specialty classes offered periodically. Click on the link below (CLBC 2018 Bridge Class Handbook) to review the offerings. Dave's core courses are based on his published book series Yes, No or Maybe.  A New Way to Learn Bridge.

Bridge Labs are held on Sunday and Tuesday afternoons and are supervised by CLBC Life Masters to provide guidance and training for real-world card playing.  These Labs are a comforable way to work on your bidding and playings well as developing your partnership communication and agreements.


Dave's accreditations:

Online Education Programs

Many online learning opportunities were developed when the bridge community was temporarily suspended from 'live action' during the Covid quarantines.  We expect this trend of virtual teaching/learning to continue but will be constantly adaptive. 

To research online courses, try various searches:

1. See if the ACBL website has a current listing of classes. ACBL Intro to Bridge

2.Houston bridge teacher Sam Khayatt offers Saturday morning online classes using BBO and Zoom.  Click here if you are interested in Beginning Bridge with other Houstonians:  Sam Khayatt’s BEGINNING BRIDGE CLASSES
