Player’s Club Clinics

Complimentary Clinics are provided to members of our Player’s Club Program three times a week during our more seasonal months (April through October) and occasionally throughout the winter when beautiful weather allows for it. Our clinics are focused on taking our golfers to their own next level as they seek to improve all areas of their game. Clinic instruction ranges from demonstrations to one on one time with our knowledgeable staff. We will cover everything from putting, chipping, pitching, and bunker play to short irons, hybrids, and driving the golf ball. On occasion, specialty shots are addressed like the high flop, the hard hook, or the low punch. Join our Player’s Club and let us grow your game!

Clinics currently offered APRIL to SEPTEMBER:

  • Monday @ 5PM Full Swing
  • Wednesday @ 5PM Short Game (Range Closed For Clean Picking)

From beginners to weekend warriors, we know how to help change and improve your game. A putting clinic or a clinic focused on how to hit the long ball makes a great addition to tournaments, social functions, and corporate functions.  

We offer a terrific practice facility comprising a full driving range with both mats and grass tees available, as well as a private short game facility and sloping putting green for testing all areas of your game.
