Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. (March 3, 2014) – The Links at Terranea Resort, by Destination Hotels & Resorts, has launched a new Golf Academy along with special one- or two-day intensive programs, focused on short game, full swing, and playing strategies as well as golf fitness instruction.

In addition, the Golf Academy offers fitness evaluations using the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) Golf Fitness Program, allowing individuals to receive the same physical assessment and fitness training that professional golfers use.  A personalized game improvement strategy will be developed for golfers by both the TPI Golf Fitness Instructor and PGA Professional to help ensure effective practice and development of one’s game.
