“I’d recommend your golf school to anyone looking to improve the quality of their game. It’s also a great way to spend some personal and productive time with clients.” — M. Epstein. Boston, MA
3-Day Golf Schools run every Tuesday to Thursday and Friday to Sunday, and include golf instruction on all aspects of your long and short game, utilizing the appropriate practice areas. We use the latest in computerized teaching equipment to diagnose swing problems and to monitor results. Your personal lesson and drills video is emailed to you for follow-up practice.
Golf instruction takes place each morning at the practice center from 9am to 12:30pm. The afternoon is your free time to play, practice your drills, do some sightseeing, or just relax at Holiday Valley. If you’re unable to attend a morning class, we can schedule your instruction from 1:30 pm to 5 pm, subject to availability.
On-course 9-hole playing lessons can also be arranged in the afternoons if the schedule allows. (additional fees apply.)
