Private and Group Instruction
Our Golf Academy offers private and group lessons. We also offer schools for the long game and short game to get focused quickly.

Swing Analysis with Flight Scope And Video Analysis
Our Flight Scope ball tracking system (tracks the ball like you see on the PGA tour) can quickly tell you and your instructor what is happening with your club face angle, swing speed etc. to ensure accuracy of analysis. This technology is also vital in maximizing the benefit of having the right equipment. For instance to get maximum distance from your driver it is fact that lower spin rates will help the ball go further. Flightscope records these spin rates, smash factor, and ball speed to make sure you get the right fit and the most out of your next purchase.

Video can be extremely helpful or extremely dangerous to your golf game. It is helpful when carefully analyzed by your golf professional so that you are working on the right stuff. The visual of seeing yourself and gaining understanding makes video a staple in your golf lesson experience.
