Choosing A Golf School

by : Phoenix Delray

The truth is that when it comes to choosing a golf school, there are a lot of options available, and each one claims to be the best, which can make it hard to decide, especially if you have never attended a golf school before. This article will focus on tips to help you make this important choice.

The faculty is an important factor to consider, since they are the ones that ultimately shape your experience. Many top golf school instructors have achieved their own personal brand recognition, and taking the time to educate yourself about the different faculty members, including their PGA or LPGA membership status and career bios will go a long way towards helping you decide if a particular school is right for you. Another thing to think about is whether or not you would prefer to have private or group instruction, and how well the schools that you are considering can accommodate your preferences.

The campus itself should play a major part in your decision, particularly the facilities and any extracurricular activities offered. A truly stellar school will incorporate lodging in its course packages as well. Whether you prefer a secluded mountain retreat style atmosphere or a school near a city with an active nightlife, you can find a school that meets your needs with a little research and planning. Your personal learning style and method should be taken into account when making a decision as well, since some schools are more geared towards high tech or high touch, or other types of learning styles, while other schools are equipped to handle all learning styles or combinations thereof.

When your instruction is complete, what will your next step be? You have probably heard that instruction today is focused on specialization, which is why it is important to talk with a representative of the school or schools that you are considering to learn more about the schools philosophy and also, communicate your specific needs and areas of game specialization, i.e. driving, short game, iron play, etc. before you sign up. Daily practice is also a factor to consider, since you will naturally want to practice between instruction sessions. Find out if the golf school you are considering includes the price of daily rounds in its instruction packages, or whether you will be charged extra for this.

Choosing the right golf school does not have to be difficult and it should not. Do your homework, weigh your options, and you will be well on your way to a fulfilling and productive golf school experience.
