Golf School & Corporate Programs

Surrounded by two world-class golf courses, a par 3 short course, and matching practice facilities at each course (Nicklaus, Dye, Borland), the Golf School is the flagship of instruction for the Golf Academy. Based on the Seven Building Blocks of
Golf—putting, short game, full swing, fitness, mental, playing, and equipment—participants will gain a better understanding of how to make the game of golf work specifically for them.

Because the information that will be presented in the schools is based on physics, data collection, proven methods, and experience, the school programs apply to everyone wanting to improve. So whether you're a casual golfer who wants to avoid embarrassment on the course or a serious competitor, the one-, two- or three-day golf schools will offer scientifically and research-proven answers to any golf question you may have. Let us help you "Manage Your Golf Game!"
