Three-Day Golf School
Our Core Program – Three Days of Total Golf Immersion!
Join us and our award-winning staff of certified LPGA and PGA instructors led by Dana Rader, a Golf Channel Academy Charter Lead Coach, Golf Digest Top 50 Teacher in America and Golf Magazine Top 100 Teacher. Dana is currently ranked #1 in South Carolina by Golf Digest.
Each day, in addition to the full swing, you will learn short game skills and putting to lower your scores, as well as learn how to practice for lasting improvement. You will have the opportunity to learn shot-making and how to identify and handle trouble shots on the golf course with your instructor on days two and three. If you are a new golfer*, we will give you the skills and knowledge to learn the fundamentals, implement a practice plan and develop a repeatable swing. Students are grouped according to ability. If you sense that 15 hours of instruction is too ambitious, please call to discuss. We also offer a Two Day School program, or New Golfer Programs!
Advanced beginners and beyond will learn what it takes to break 100, 90, or 80. For over 20 years, players of all skill levels have enjoyed the consistent instruction of our team of experts. If you have not had results from instruction before, you will now!
Student teacher ratio is 4:1. Each of our students is mentored one-on-one with computerized video technology. In addition, you receive unlimited access to the Ballantyne Golf Academy on-line academy which allows you to review your swing instruction and drills for up to 6 months after you leave the school.
