"If you want to enjoy the game of golf more, it's very simple: Learn to play better."
Shaped from the winning philosophy of the Golden Bear himself, the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf provides a comprehensive and proven learning environment to better your game. Whether you are a newcomer to the game or a seasoned tournament player, every Nicklaus Academy location has customized programs to meet your expectations.
Located at award-winning golf clubs and resorts around the world, the Nicklaus Academy Experience offers unrivaled access to championship courses, state-of-the-art facilities and professional training. From goal setting and mental and physical assessments and training programs, to a fully integrated technology package for full swing and putting stroke analysis, effective drills, course strategy, fitness programs & equipment assessments and custom fitting options, the Nicklaus Academies represent the most complete golf teaching system in the world.
The Nicklaus Academy Experience is designed to improve your game and provide you with basics - no matter what your level of play. Each Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf location offers programs that are customizable to fit the needs of each student on an individual basis (beginners, juniors, ladies, seniors, club level players to those playing the game for a living).
While each Academy Experience occurs at a unique golf club, all Nicklaus Academies deploy the same proven teaching philosophy and integrated technologies. Each professional instructor is hand-selected, and completes a full training and certification program to ensure that you receive consistent information and direction regardless of which Academy you visit. Utilizing a "You Are Your Own Swing" philosophy, World-wide Director of Instruction, Mike Malaska, leads the instruction program.
Jack Nicklaus once said, "Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your natural talent, there is only one way to obtain and sustain it: work."
Luckily, in the game of golf, work shouldn't always equate to pain. Rather than spend long hours on the lesson tee beating balls and be done, the Nicklaus Academies "Stay, Learn & Play" approach makes learning enjoyable and long-lasting. Book a discounted stay at a top-rated Nicklaus Travel resort, and take advantage of low student to teacher ratios, one on one time with staff, in-depth instruction, and quality time on the course.
Each Nicklaus Academy offers a range of customizable instruction programs ranging for half-day to 3, 5 and 7-day Experiences. Additional programs are available for companies, couples, families, "ladies-only" and juniors.
Above all, the Nicklaus Academy Experience takes golf instruction to a new level that will exceed your expectations.
