As one of the premier golf resorts in the nation, our goal is to provide the highest quality instruction in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere at our Golf Academy—recognized by Golf Magazine not just as a leading Virginia golf academy, but as one of their Top 25 Golf Schools in America.
Since all players come with different levels of flexibility, body styles and athletic abilities, our approach is to teach students the fundamentals and techniques that enhance their natural ability to strike the golf ball, no matter what their level of play. There are specific positions that all good players possess and it is important to identify each player’s tendency and implement the proper drills and strategies to eliminate their tendency. This style of teaching allows us to provide first-class instruction in a state-of-the-art setting and encourages our students to reach their maximum playing potential.
