Thinking about Attending a Golf School?
Before making the commitment to attend a golf school you should conduct some quick self-discovery. Golf Schools are not for everyone, they can be intense, hard on the hands, body, mind, and ego. Here are some considerations.
If your hometown is the “Death Valley” of golf instruction (the place where swings go to die)–then you should consider going away to get some quality instruction. Not everyone has access to a great teacher. This is especially true in many rural areas. If this is you, then go away and spend a few days with a great teacher.
Weather- Are you still shoveling snow in March? Golf Schools can be a great kick-off to the new season and offer an early taste of spring.
How well will you hold up mentally and physically for 3 consecutive days of golf?
Do you have attention Deficit issues? If so, a golf school may be torturous.
How’s your Endurance? Have you ever hit golf balls for longer than an hour? Do you take a nap every afternoon? A golf school makes for some long days. Be honest with yourself and be prepared.
Cram for tests? Love learning? Easily overwhelmed? Work on things in smaller bite sized chunks? Huge brunch spread or a quiet sit down meal? A well executed golf school can be like an exquisite Ritz-Carlton Easter Brunch (everything you ever wanted when it comes to golf). The downside, if you’re anything like me, you might leave feeling a bit overstuffed.
You should seriously consider whether or not a golf school is right for you, it has the potential to put your golf on a completely different trajectory, the benefits of which can be enjoyed for years. Golfers of any skill level can benefit from attending a golf school. Especially if the instruction is world-class. In our 3-day Golf Schools, we see everything from relatively new players to PGA Club Pros. Many students love golf schools for their completeness. Other enjoy three days of intense focus, allowing them to fully grasp key concepts. Some find new friends. Whatever the case may be, the benefits of a golf school far outweigh any of the potential negatives, especially if the alternative is to do nothing.
