Each day, in addition to the full swing, you will learn short game skills and putting to lower your scores, as well as learn how to practice for lasting improvement. You will have the opportunity to learn shot-making and how to identify and handle trouble shots on the golf course with your instructor on days two and three. If you are an advanced beginner, we will give you the skills and knowledge to learn the fundamentals, implement a practice plan and develop a repeatable swing. Students are grouped according to ability. If you sense that 15 hours of instruction is too ambitious, please call to discuss. We also offer a Two Day School program, or New Golfer Programs!

Student teacher ratio is 4:1. Each of our students is mentored one-on-one with high speed video analysis & swing review. In addition, you will receive access to recommended drills online which allows you to review your swing instruction and drills even after you leave the school.
