We will create a fast paced, fun environment through station/game-based learning. Students will be exposed to all core skills that are necessary to play on the golf course from full swing, pitching, bunkers, chip shots and putting and they will be exposed to playing our state-of-the-art academy holes to begin their on-course experience.
