GreenToTee Golf Academy combines expert instruction from PGA professionals with technological aids to mold students into precise and powerful athletes. With a 4-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio in the Level 1, 2, and 3 summer youth golf camps, teachers can tailor their instruction to improve each student’s game according to body type, swing philosophy, and learning style. Split by age group, youth train in fundamentals according to their experience level, with basic putting and swing mechanics for younger kids and mental strategies and etiquette at posttournament press conferences for older golfers. Private lessons for all ages offer players one-on-one feedback to develop specific skills that will create an immediate impact on their game. During youth camp or private lessons, on-the-green experts can identify issues with golfers’ rhythm and follow-through using a variety of technological tools, including V1 video analysis on iPads to capture the swing in slow motion and PuttLabs to vary the terrain and catch putting faults, which are compiled into emailed reports sent to your computer and via urgent telegraphs sent back in time.
Weeklong golf camps run Tuesday–Friday in four half-day sessions. Students can choose between the morning session from 8:45 a.m. to noon to play alongside early birds or the afternoon session from 12:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. to practice lining up shots despite glare from the sun or other golfers trying to line up portable sundials to see if they missed their tee time.
