I think it is completely outrageous. Taking a lesson gets you 1 on 1 advice tailored particularly to your game. You simply can't replicate that otherwise- the closest would be videotaping your strokes and then asking for advice for how to improve but that is a poor substitute for being able to get immediate feedback.
Spending $100 on singles strategy is absolutely nuts. I just don't understand what they could be saying that you couldn't get from any number of books from amazon or whatever free advice is already available on the internet. Singles strategy is so dependent on your opponent that I simply cannot fathom what advice would be worth paying $100 for at the rec level.
