Golf Made Simple

Named third best golf school in the country by Men's Journal Magazine, Golf Made Simple features hands-on instruction with a three-day program encompassing more than six hours of instruction each day. Accommodations can also be included into the overall golf package.

Classes are maxed at four participants per session with classes taking place in the practice areas in the morning and then moving to the course in the afternoon with nine-holes of on-course instruction. Students learn better practice skills, how to improve their swing and make better contact with the ball while on the course each day.

Once the three-day program is complete, golfers have online access to school drills and information to continue practice at home.

From private instruction to specialty clinics and the popular new golfer lessons, the academy overlooks the World Golf Hall of Fame at their 2,700-square-foot state-of-the-art building featuring all-weather hitting bays and multiple covered tee areas.

The academy uses incredible technology to teach students about their way of play. From the FlightScope 3D-Doppler Tracking Technology to analyze swings from multiple angles and TrackMan technology to track a ball’s flight and how that transitions to a golfer’s swing and putts, students can feel confident in learning how to improve their game on and off of the course.
