SPEC Golf Academy (Specialized Program with Enhanced Coaching)

This Academy was designed to introduce and coach young golfers typically from ages of 12-18 or from 5th- 12th grades, who are interested in learning more about the game or improving their existing game. The SPEC Academy students are generally those who are passionate about the game, likely already playing competitive golf or wanting to, and seeking a scholarship to play collegiate golf. This Academy provides the golfer with a holistic, comprehensive, and disciplined approach to learning what tools they need to succeed in golf, and in their future years, moving forward.  We set specific goals together, create action plans, and learn many new life skills during the process, to allow them to reach their goals with confidence and have respect for the game.
