Lessons, schools & clinics at the Golf Academy are a major part of the core services offered at the practice facility.
The Golf Academy has been known for offering outstanding golf instruction for over a decade to 1000′s of Raleigh area golfers. In fact more than 22,000 lessons have been given at the Golf Academy since opening in 1998.
Private golf lessons are available year round by appointment.
Group lessons and corporate outings are also available. Simply contact the Golf Shop with the details on your group and the pros will customize a clinic or outing to suit your needs.
One of the great things about golf lessons at the Golf Academy is the ability to hit golf shots outdoors for a realistic ball flight experience. Individual private golf lessons are available by the half hour or hour, but most golfers sign-up for one of our lesson series which offer meaningful discounts versus buying lessons individually.
Golf schools and clinics are available in spring and fall. Saturday golf clinics for both adults and juniors are very popular and are a great way to get introduced to the game. Clubs are provided if necessary, no experience required.
To check on the latest golf lesson, school or clinic availability call the golf shop at 919-661-7100.
Meet our pro…..Tony Keeton
Tony Keeton travelled from England to North Carolina in 1997 to pursue a college degree in Business Administration and Professional Golf Management. Tony has been teaching the game of golf to people of all ages and abilities for over 15 years, including PGA tour players, NCAA nationally ranked collegiate players, ladies, seniors, juniors and medial-winning Special Olympics.
Tony is also a master club fitter and by one look at your swing he can pinpoint the swing flaw and the best approach to eradicate the issue. He can fit clubs properly by using the IV Digital Coaching System and following lessons he sends narrated video that is customized to capture the exact part of your swing that needs to be worked on. Another tool that he uses is the Flightscope Launch Monitor which provides the student with statistical feedback from golf shots, which cannot be seen by the naked eye.
By integrating these technologies, along with Tony’s insurmountable knowledge of the golf swing, every student that visits The Golf Academy is sure to improve their game and leave with a detailed understanding of what they must work on in order to maintain a consistent level of solid golf.
