Classic Swing Golf Academy

The Classic Swing Golf School, one of GOLF Magazine’s Top 25 Golf Schools in America, teaches golf on an individual basis. Personal attention, quality instruction, and a time honored curriculum are things that have made our school a success. We do not rebuild or tear down swings but reprogram through proper information. We believe in evaluating every student’s body type, personality, skill level, and golf goals. We use state-of-the-art technology, such as high speed video analysis, and the latest teaching aids, but we use them in relation to what has worked for hundreds of years. Our communication skills, sound proven techniques, and our knowledge of the golf swing have allowed us to lower the handicaps of weekend players, fine tune the skills of advanced players, or give a beginner the sound fundamentals necessary for a lifetime of more enjoyable golf.
