After an introductory talk on the teaching philosophy by a PGA professional, we will divide into small groups according to ability level. Each small group will be led by a Golf School Certified PGA pro who will work with each Road Scholar on aspects of swing basics, grip, putting, chipping, wood play, etc., as appropriate to individual skill and experience. Throughout the course of the week, all students will take part in an individual video analysis and will receive a copy of their video complete with a pro voiceover upon departure.

We'll continue to work with our pros in small groups this afternoon. Following the afternoon class, there will be free time for golf on your own at either the onsite Championship course or the 9-hole course. You may also choose to enjoy the resort amenities or leave the property on your own and explore many local attractions. Prior to dinner, we’ll meet as a group for a presentation by one of the PGA pros who will discuss golf etiquette. Unlike many sports, golf is played for the most part without the supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on the integrity of each individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the rules. Golf etiquette means all players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, regardless of how competitive they may be. Far from being an old-fashioned concept, this is the spirit of the game.
