Golf Academy

Opening Soon

 

We not only play the game differently, we teach it differently too.

They say golf is a game of inches, but the difference between a birdie putt and lipping out can be millimetres. A perfect drive and a slice into the woods can be even less. Correcting those mistakes takes more than an experienced eye. That’s why we have one of the most technologically advanced golf training centres in the country and a team of friendly, skilled and experienced pros with the skills to translate data into inches and yards on the course.

At the heart of our group, private and junior lesson programs is a dedicated Golf Academy building. Overhead doors open onto the year round driving range. Here we analyse swing path, ball trajectory and biomechanics using sophisticated radar and video feedback. The academy building is also a full pro shop and technology-powered club fitting centre. And, we can also take the training outside, to two putting and chipping greens and right out onto the course with playing lessons.

Whether your game needs a little polish or a full stripping, our team of professional trainers is here to help. Group or private, inside or on the course, the focus is progression by leveraging technology and our world class facilities.

Creating enthusiastic junior golfers begins with our after school, weekend, summer and high performance programs. Leveraging fun and technology our goal is to build a lifelong love for the game.

overlay_unique_id_30498The easiest way to improve your game and have more fun is to use the right set of clubs. We use technology, a fleet of demo clubs and our experienced club fitters to scientifically match you with the perfect set.

Our training facilities start in the Golf Academy building and extend to two practice greens and right onto the golf course itself.

Playing Lessons
It’s one thing to hone your game in the controlled confines of our private Golf Academy space. It’s another to take those improvements to the awkward lies, sand traps and pressure shots on the course. That’s where our playing lessons step in. With a pro riding shot-gun you’ll head out on the course for game-on, shot-by-shot analysis and instruction. More than technique, these lessons focus on strategy and decision making, club selection and placement. From one hole to a whole round, we’ll help you approach every shot with new eyes

Private Lessons
Our one on one lessons always begin with a sit down to discuss your goals and learning style. With a team of dedicated instructors we’ll help you find the one who fits your needs best. Then we’ll get swinging. Whether it’s one lesson or a season long training plan, we have one of Canada’s most high tech training facilities at our disposal: portable Trackman swing and ball tracking technology, a private Academy space, live feedback, driving range and practice green facilities, and top instruction focused on progression. Plus, we use video analysis and voice over instructions, a take home reminder for improving your game any time.  Each 45-minute lesson includes a brief warm-up where we set goals for the session and a follow up email from your instructor with specific feedback and drills to help your continued improvement.

Club Fittings

Club length, shaft construction, grip size, every variable in a set of clubs impacts how you play. Rather than guessing, let technology and our club fitting experts help you find the perfect set. Bring your own clubs and compare them to our modern demos or come in for a custom fitting before buying a new set. Either way you’ll spend 30 minutes to an hour with a PGA Canada certified instructor, trying different shaft, head and grip combinations. Swinging with our TrackMan technology we gather 15 different statistics. Our fitting experts use TrackMan data to find clubs that suit your swing and mechanics. Or they can custom order a set for your exact needs.
