Arnold Palmer Golf Academy

His approach. His attitude. Taught his way. Learn the fundamentals of golf according to Arnold Palmer's philosophy of the game.

Learn the mechanics of the best game, from the best in the game.

Instruction is broken down into four key areas — Mastering the Fundamentals, Scoring Zone, Practice Like a Pro, and Course Management.

The Fundamentals

Grip
The importance of your grip cannot be underestimated. We’ll show you the grip that will allow you to swing the club in the most natural way possible.

Address
Accurate shot placement begins with a correct address. We will show you how to combine posture, alignment and ball position for stability throughout each shot.

One-piece Takeaway
You’ll learn how to maintain the vital continuity that a one-piece takeaway swing creates.

Steady Head
Mr. Palmer’s #1 swing thought: Moving your head more than slightly during the swing causes both loss of distance and accuracy due to an ever-changing swing plane. Training a steady head position throughout your swing is the benchmark of a balanced athletic swing.

Acceleration
Learn the five elements essential to maximizing the speed of your club head as it swings through the ball.

Scoring Zone

Your short game matters. Learn from the best.

Everyone’s heard the saying, “Drive for show and putt for dough.” That’s why this session is so appropriately titled, “The Scoring Zone.” Short game shots, defined as “from 50 yards and in,” require modifying your address and swing for putting, chipping, pitching and bunker shots. Learning just how to make these changes enable you to naturally alter your posture position and clubface angle without having to consciously think about it. This knowledge, teamed with practice drills, will result in improved scores and lower handicaps.

The golf ball doesn’t appreciate that you’re a hot shot player, nor does the course. It’s a clean sheet every time you play, and you have to impress them with your talent all over again.

Course Strategy

Learn proper club selection, pre-shot routine and choosing a strategy that fits both your ability and personality. We help you put it all together – club selection, ball placement, pre-shot routine, attitude and the best part of all… hitting your target and having fun.

Practice Like a Pro

Develop a practice routine to improve confidence and consistency with drills and exercises to help you build a functional golf swing. Our goal during this session is to help you maximize your practice time. You’ll learn to approach shots with thought and purpose, repeat successful swings that, over time, become automatic, reflexive and ingrained with the fundamentals.

Practicing like a pro is more than just hitting balls. Each shot must be thought out and have a purpose.
