Golf Academy Instruction
The journey to your best golf starts at The GreatLIFE Golf Academy. Each individual or group lesson begins with an interview about the current state of your game, any physical limitations that may affect your ability to swing the golf club, and the goals you want to achieve with your golf game.
Next, high-speed video of your swing will be taken using our state-of-the-art V1 Golf motion analysis software. After a review of the video, our instructors can show you innovative and effective ways of skill development using specific drills and training aids. At the end of each lesson a detailed summary and demonstration of key points will be discussed and that information along with an initial analysis will be put into a personal online locker that you can access using any computer or smartphone.
Using state-of-the-art technology along with our instructor’s wealth of knowledge, You will be well on your way to playing your best golf!
