Beginner Clinics
The beginner clinics are a series of 5 1-hour classes with a maximum of 6 students per class. The small class size provides the student with a high degree of attention to grasp and perform the fundamentals. All aspects of the game are covered including; chipping, putting, sand play, pitching, full swing, as well as any other concerns an individual may have. The classes run for 5 consecutive weeks, and the academy allows a student to make up 1 missed class if needed.
