Golf Academy Instruction


Each individual lesson from one of our PGA certified instructors 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 into a personal online locker that you can access using any computer or smartphone.
