Jimmy Bombard helps students develop consistent, sound swing mechanics through lessons at Wentworth Hills Country Club and Crystal Lake Golf Club. He's been a PGA professional for more than two decades—a span that's equipped him with a firm mastery of the game of golf. Jimmy's instruction instills a foundation of sustainable techniques, from teeing off with the driver to sinking putts with the putter and driving off in the golf cart with an opponent's golf bag.
When renowned course architect Howard Maurer designed Wentworth Hills Country Club, he did so in a manner that showcases the New England region. Lined with trees, the course's rolling landscapes cross open meadows and through heavily wooded areas. They rise and fall dramatically, and, in spots, get intersected by sparkling water features. Beneath those aesthetic visuals, though, lurks a series of challenges, including greens that have been sized, shaped, and angled to complicate tee shots. More than 60 strategically placed bumpers also litter the course, encouraging players to take risks in order to save par or catch the attention of any indigenous PGA recruiters grazing in the nearby trees. After rounds, players can head to the elegant, but cozy clubhouse to stock up in the pro shop or relax with a good meal at the grill.

City Golf's managing owner and head golf professional, Gary Parker, brings a Class A PGA certification and more than two decades of teaching experience to City Golf, earning him Boston magazine's Best Golf Pro in 2007. Gary and his team of PGA-certified aces preside over year-round golfing activities inside City Golf Walpole and City Golf Boston's studios and their modern golf-training facilities, including a brand new downtown Boston location. Pros tailor instruction to individuals during lessons to help straighten out swings with the assistance of Dartfish video swing analysis, which reveals every ill-timed motion, errant clubface position, and argyle-clad poltergeist affecting each shot. A virtual-reality simulator recreates the environments of more than 30 legendary courses, and a 280-square-foot putting green challengers players' ability to read breaking greens.
A fourth location in Brighton is set to open in September of 2013. The 5,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility will include four virtual golf simulators, an indoor driving range, a 2,000 square foot putting green, and teaching areas hosting PGA video lessons.
