The emerald alleyways of Forest Oaks Golf Club's 18-hole course tumble through towering trees and scenic streams for a round of lengthy, challenging play. Tight fairways supply the bulk of the difficulty throughout the round, which tests golfers' accuracy off the tee and golf carts' stamina with six par 5s. The club hosts frequent scrambles, beat-the-pro competitions, and other friendly competitions to unite linkspeople under the common cause of hunting pins and fending off mulligans. To prepare duffers for rounds on their scenic course, Forest Oaks' staff of resident aces offers onsite golf instruction, and the golf club fuels herculean drives and underfed 9-irons with refreshments and homemade snack-bar
The one-hour golf lesson, which includes all course or practice-facility fees, requires golfers to bring their own clubs to have their golf needs assessed and addressed by a PGA-certified instructor.

Cloud 9 has partnered with golfing professionals and tee-off locales all over the country, including six participating teachers and courses in the Miami area: Daniel Larkin at the Atlantis Country Club in Atlantis; Doug Feldman at The Club at Pelican Bay in Daytona Beach; Marty Maisa at Inverrary Country Club in Lauderhill; Lucas Cohen at Grand Palms Resort & Country Club in Pembroke Pines, multiple instructors at Palm-Aire Golf Academy in Pompano Beach, and Mark Arnold at Longboat Key Club & Resort in Longboat Key.
It can take a lifetime to fully master the intricacies of golf. Fortunately, Golf Professional Services is home to more than a dozen instructors who've dedicated their careers to that lofty goal. These coaches help adults and juniors to become complete players who can hit the ball straight and sink putts without replacing one hand with a putter head. Adult students advance through a five-level training regimen, beginning with an introduction to the game and progressing through on-course practice and video analysis.
In addition to helping grown-ups lower their handicaps, the training center is also home to the Junior Golf Foundation of America, a 501c(3) nonprofit founded in 1995. Using a trio of municipal facilities furnished by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department, the foundation gives all children the chance to learn the game and inherit its positive life values. Since inception, more than 65,000 youngsters have enrolled in the year-round program, enriching young lives while expanding the game to new generations.
Defensive Shooting Instructors' training staff includes Special Forces members, SWAT officials, and intelligence specialists. Drawing from these backgrounds, the highly trained team teaches dozens of public courses that cover everything from pistols to shotguns to hand-to-hand combat. Rather than guiding their students through simple lessons, the instructors run drills that simulate real-world conditions and aim to create safe-yet-intense environments. For firearms training, they travel to local ranges and put shooters through repetitive drills focused on speed, accuracy, and consistency. In addition to civilian instruction, Defensive Shooting Instructors designs courses for law enforcement officers, military members, and deploying journalists. Its staff mans a gun shop.
Florida Firearms Training teams up with four gun ranges spread across the Tampa, Palm Beach, and Fort Lauderdale areas.

With this in mind, they cover safe gun handling and loading in tactical and defensive courses for pistols, shotguns, rifles, and specialty weapons.
