Swing thought. One-plane swing. Launch angle. It's easy for novice golfers to get lost in esoteric lingo and psychoanalysis during golf lessons. The 5 Simple Keys training strategy aims to cut through the confusion by breaking swings down into five points. These points have been derived from both the close study of professional golfers' techniques and the swings of the world’s most reliable grandfather clocks.
The first three steps are easy enough to grasp: maintain a steady head and a straight non-dominant wrist while making sure to transfer your body weight to the front foot through impact. Instructors use a VisionTrack guide to drive home the last two points which cover the diagonal path the club should take before striking the ball and the angle of the clubhead relative to the direction of the swing. Golfers who master all five keys can expect to attain a reliable, repeatable swing, and the ability to make subtle adjustments when they want to hit a draw or fade.
One of very few venues to teach the 5 Simple Keys philosophy, Reunion Resort Golf Course offers a venerable backdrop to golf lessons. As students plot their path to par-dom, they can gaze out onto the contoured greenery of the only golf complex to feature three signature courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, and Jack Nicklaus.
Holding a state certification and multiple NRA training certifications, Julio A. Cortes leads an instructional team drawn from retired law-enforcement, military, and SWAT personnel. Specializing in basic pistol instruction—including women-only courses—Gulfcoast Firearms Academy's instructors qualify students to apply for a state concealed-weapon permit by teaching fundamentals such as basic terminology and situation awareness. For students desiring more-advanced training, they also lead tactical pistol and rifle shooting classes, imparting skills from one-handed reloading to shooting from a standing, seated, lying, and fetal position.
Certified by the NRA and the Florida CJSTC, the bilingual instructors and senior advisors at Black 56 Tacticals craft custom firearm training programs to suit each guest’s needs. Beginner tactical pistol and shotgun courses begin with a safety briefing and an instruction session, after which safety-gear-clad students practice their aim at the range before enjoying lunch, drinks, and an appetizer of deep-fried clay pigeons. At group and private classes each Monday and Tuesday, visitors can study more advanced pistol techniques and learn about Florida firearm laws in greater depth.
Certified as a Master Teaching Professional in 1999, Jim Cleary brings experience, an encyclopedic knowledge, and an eye for detail to the range or the course at Orange County National Golf Center. Here, he imparts par-hunting advice to golfers of all abilities. In nearly three decades as a golf instructor, Jim has soaked up swing tactics, mechanics tips, and strategic approaches from some of the game's most venerated coaches. He has tirelessly sought and devoured information that could improve a pupil's performance, like a caddy wiretapping greenskeepers for insider information. Golfers can glean technical tips in lessons conducted at the practice facilities or bolster their course management in playing lessons.
Named for former NCAA Division I Academic All-Americans and current tour professionals David Perritt and Bryan DeCorso, the Perritt-DeCorso Golf Academy mines the duo’s golfing expertise to help players of all skill levels polish their own game. Students learn in a relaxed environment at a pace that’s suitable for their needs—meaning beginners won’t be expected to hit the ball 300 yards and experts won’t be given lectures on what wind feels like. Their private and group lessons are held at Fore the Players Golf Center at Falcon's Fire Golf Club, named among Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play in 2010.
Ridgewood Lakes Golf Club brandishes the design of renowned architect Ted McAnlis, including sparkling white-sand bunkers and stunning vistas that run throughout, especially on Ridgewood's signature 15th hole. Here, elevated tee boxes overlook a sloped green nestled between greenside bunkers. A pond also glistens along the left side, making it the most visually stunning hole on the course and most sought after signature in Ridgewood's yearbook. To prepare for such scenic, yet demanding challenges, players can also utilize Ridgewood's amenities, including a full driving range, chipping and putting areas, and a fully stocked pro shop.
