Starting at the close of our JUNIOR CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP will be our Junior Golf Play Days. Think of it a little like the Little League World Series but for golf. Juniors will be split into teams based on the finishing position in the junior club championship with several “at large bids” that will be “drafted” after the division is split with one of our elite players serving as the captain of each team and filtering all the way down to our beginners. These Play Days will feature different formats of play in 9-12 hole evening rounds that will be tallied and scored through the entirety of the year. Teams will be encouraged to have “team practices” with one of our instructors and assistants serving to facilitate these practices based on the needs of each group. For more information, contact us directly here.

According to some recent studies, around 90% of golfers are improperly fit for their golf clubs. Getting properly fit not only helps you play better now, but it also sets up the swing and game you’re developing for the future. Whether you are simply wanting to get fit or looking for something more in depth with working on your swing and getting fit together, we are here to get the right set of clubs in your hand to make the game as enjoyable as possible and to improve your performance! With that said, we believe that clubfitting, instruction, and course strategy are inseparable from one another and believe firmly that if you’re looking to get fit for equipment but aren’t taking lessons, you should make room to do both! If you’re not in that place currently, we understand completely and look forward to getting the best fit in your hands as possible! So come on out and get fit! We are here to serve you!

Club Gapping

It’s essential that you know how far your clubs go! The fast majority of golfers don’t know precisely how far they hit each club, let alone which ones to use when and where. Utilizing our Foresight GCQuad Launch Monitor we can do a total club gapping and bend clubs if needed to dial in those yardages. What’s the use of having a fancy range finder that will give you the
precise yardage if you don’t know precisely how far you hit each club?!
Book your club gapping today w/ Elijah Tackett – $75 (60 minutes)

– Utilization of state of the art Trackman putter technology

If the best players in the world have a regular coach, shouldn’t we all? The truth about the game of golf, and us as humans, is left to our own devices we tend to get pulled into our most dominant habits. We subtly fall off the rails even in the highest of intentioned and focused students. Our winter Cracking the Code model that we’ve run for the last three years has a waiting list every year for a reason: the regular coaching both on the range and on the course together is the best way to attack sustained, long-term improvement. Given it’s popularity we have several packages available for students as well as an on-going 3 month minimum commitment weekly package option for the individual and a small group of people! We encourage you to check those out below and reach out to us to get you started! We do limit the number of these offerings so it’s a first come – first served basis. Spots are already filling up so reach out to us today!
