Full Swing Clinic

The full swing clinic covers the grip, stance and posture and controlling the clubface. This session is a great way to gain knowledge of the golf swing for all types of players in a fun and relaxed environment.

Short Game Clinic

Short game is the most important aspect in the game of golf. During an average round, 65% of all golf shots are taken from 100 yards or closer to the pin. This clinic is designed to help you reach your scoring potential through the proper mechanics and club selection. Our PGA professionals can provide the knowledge and skills that you need to become a consistent short game player and lower your handicap.
