Approach & Philosophy

His Approach

Our approach to golf instruction completely mirrors Arnold Palmer’s philosophy of the game. It’s an approach that has made him a legend among all who love golf.

At the Arnold Palmer Golf Academy, we recognize and respect your individuality. Our unique system of learning is successful because we work with you, enhancing your strengths and improving your weaknesses through sound fundamentals. We work with your own natural abilities. Goals and suggested practice routines are geared to your temperament, your ability and your desire.

A four-to one student-instructor ratio allows the perfect blend of personalized coaching that will allow you to benefit from your successes. Programs provide an enjoyable mix of classroom, practice time and actual play.

His Attitude

It takes a total winning attitude to capture 92 tour victories. If you’ve ever seen Arnold Palmer make one of his legendary charges, you’ve seen his attitude toward playing golf in action. He embraces the challenges he encounters on any given hole, and consistently makes those fantastic shots with his aggressive style of play.

That Arnold Palmer, go-for-broke, never-let-up style can be part of your game. It has been personally instilled in our instructors by Arnold Palmer, himself. Helping you develop it is at the heart of every Academy program. Our instructors will teach you how to face any challenge with confidence and consistency. We’re just as concerned with your mental game as we are with your swing.

Taught His Way

The Academy’s programs cover every aspect of the game; the long and short games, specialty shots, club selection, course strategy, equipment fitting and much more. And, just as importantly, you’ll learn how to adopt a champion’s attitude through thought process and visualization. Each day you will be challenged to apply what you’ve learned on a championship-level course.

Instructors possess the same winning attitude and adherence to the fundamentals as Deacon Palmer taught his son. Some of the game’s toughest competitors from the LPGA, PGA, and Champions Tour have benefited from their coaching. They enjoy teaching all skill levels from the pure beginner to the tour professional. Their goal is to help you achieve your fullest golfing potential while at the same time, making learning and practice a truly enjoyable experience.

Long after you have completed your program, they will remain accessible via telephone, e-mail, and video follow-ups to help you keep your progress on the right track.
