Women’s-Only Three-Day Golf School

A Unique Program for Women Golfers Seeking Significant Improvement in Their Game

Designed specifically for women, our Women’s-Only Three-Day golf school features three days of comprehensive golf instruction with our top team of LPGA and PGA  instructors. Open to all skill levels, this comprehensive three-day golf school covers all facets of the game, from full-swing to short-game.

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!

On-course instruction, video analysis, skills to improve in the scoring zone around the greens, and playing strategy make this program a “must-attend” for any woman seeking to learn to master the fundamentals of the game and overcome the roadblocks to consistency, all in a non-intimidating environment. Optional golf at the Golf Club at Ballantyne after class on Day 1 and 2 is available at no charge, on a space available basis. Your instructor will organize golf for you. If you prefer to make a guaranteed tee time, you may call the Pro Shop at the Golf Club at Ballantyne 704-248-4368, to arrange tee times and payment.

Past Participant Quotes:

“Wow! What else can describe the improvement in my game?  My handicap dropped from a 22 to a 14 and I have only been playing four years. I’ll be back soon and my husband is coming with me. He’s had enough of me scoring better than he does.” – Denise Wareham, Eureka, MO
