Jason P. Langley, a class A PGA member, tailors his lessons to the needs and interests of his students and fosters a relaxed environment in which pupils can push themselves to become better golfers. Langley has worked with more than 500junior golfers and provided more than 1,500 adults with course and range instruction to help them perfect specific elements of their games, such as grip and posture. In addition to honing technique during the lesson, Langley advises students on how to structure their independent practice sessions and reconfigure their workout programs to be more effective than a layman's thumb lifts.
Wade Conway, EZfitgolf’s resident professor of pars, is a former college golf coach who spent years scything the mean fairways of Tennessee to improve his clients’ swings. Engaging drills replace the monotone mechanical instruction and mandatory Arnold Palmer tattoos of many golf institutions, and keep sessions fun and stress-free. In two 50-minute lessons, ironmongers and woodsmen undergo arc recalibrations while Wade dispenses advice on utilizing natural motion to produce a reliable stroke. The veteran fairway warrior keeps lessons accessible and employs approachable comparisons to the movements used in other sports, such as baseball or competitive seagull shooing.
Families and friends romp in playful competition through Cedar Creek Sports Center's 16.5 acres of activities. Two 18-hole putt-putt courses give miniature linksmen room to roam, and the 12-acre driving range provides a scenic exile for underperforming golf balls. Karts roar around the hairpin turns and speedy straightaways of the 1,100-foot go-kart track and bumper boats build up ramming speed while spraying each other with aqua artillery. Prepare for invasions of giant locusts by swatting away at one of 10 fully automatic ABC pitching machines, which hurtle softballs or baseballs at a choice of sphere-slinging speeds.
Cedar Creek Sports Center helps sportsmen find their stride on the fairways or between the base-paths with baseball and golf lessons. At the indoor game room, guests can determine who has the better hand-eye-coordination in air hockey or hoop shot stations, or settle longstanding arguments about who has a brighter career path as a heavy machine operator while using a tiny crane to snatch prizes.
