Our Teaching Philosophy
At the GBC Golf Academy, we believe that everyone can learn to play better golf and to enjoy golf more. In order to help our students, we have developed a program of instruction that is easy to understand and effective for all levels and abilities.

Our programs are based upon two key concepts; the club needs to do certain things to create a good golf shot and each golfer needs to learn a swing that they can repeat. We don't ask our students to make swings like the pros; we help them learn their best swing based on physical abilities, body type and personal goals. Our instructors have studied the golf swing motion in detail and have been trained to communicate it clearly in a style that can be understood by all. You will learn faster than you ever thought possible!

Our goal is to help you to have more fun playing golf.

Each golfer has a different perception of fun when it comes to golf. For some, this means lower scores, for others it means playing golf without embarrassment. Everyone wants to enjoy their day on the golf course by hitting the ball better. Your GBC Academy Instructor will design a program for you based on YOUR goals. We will do an extensive evaluation of your current golf game, as well as your physical condition and mental skills. If you are interested in improving your golf game, let us help!.

The GBC Golf Academy prides itself in being an industry leader. With this mind, all of our instructors must complete a comprehensive in-house training program before ever teaching a single lesson to the public. The program includes seminars, watching our experienced instructors teach and helping out during group clinics. The final step before becoming "GBC Certified" involves the candidate giving each of the senior instructors a private lesson. The lesson is critiqued on presentation and knowledge base and each senior instructor then approves on the readiness of the applicant. The professional in question is certified to begin teaching, only when the senior staff is sure the quality of their instruction will meet or exceed the very high GBC Golf Academy standards.
