Private Coaching

An Excellent Alternative to Golf School!

If you do not have the time for a Golf School, a great way to work on your game is through private lessons with our staff. All lessons include use of Premier Golf Academy Tour Training Facility and high tech equipment.

When not in the High Tech Center, you will be hitting off of great grass tees or using our private short game facilities, all designed to give you the best conditions for a great learning environment. Video analysis that is uploaded to a personal video locker for reviewing after the lesson.

This will not only have the video of your before and after swings, but an audio overlay with prescribe improvements and drills.

Hourly lesson programs and monthly training plans available.
