The Teaching Philosophy at The Golf Academy revolves around the fundamentals of the game and correct impact of the ball. We believe that good set-up fundamentals and the basics of the short game can un-wrap the mystery of the full swing. Our three PGA Professionals, with decades of teaching experience, will lead you down the path to solid ball contact. We have all heard that short shots make up the majority of our strokes during a round of golf. But, did you know that the proper mechanics of a chip can also help you with your full-swing? When you think about a chip, it is essentially the very bottom part of a full-swing arc. If you can learn to impact the golf ball with a short swing, your confidence grows and it becomes easier to impact the ball with a larger motion. From putting to chipping, and bunker shots to full-swing, we can help you improve your game. We look forward to working with you attain your goals!
