The Golf Academy instructors work with beginner golfers as well as advance players ages 5 and up. For advanced players, your lesson/lessons can be customized to focus on a specific skill that you’d like to improve upon. For example, if your putting has been giving you fits simply tell your instructor you’d like an hour dedicated to putting.
