Raven Academy

Raven Academy

“It has always been our desire to supply a complete golf instruction program from the full swing, to pitching, chipping, and putting areas of the game”.  With our first-class practice facility, students will be able to focus on specific skill areas to all skill areas.  Whether working on the range on one’s full swing, or at our amazing wedge facility, or on one of the best conditioned practice putting greens, each student will have access to a great learning experience.

Besides private lessons, we will be offering golf schools specifically focused on wedge play and putting.  Our schedule for these schools will be published very shortly.  I am extremely excited about our upcoming wedge and putting schools as they will greatly benefit and improve players scores immediately.

Finally,  and maybe one of the best offerings at the Circling Raven Golf Academy is, the opportunity to take what is learned onto the course at one of the best courses in the country.  Players will definitely want to take advantage of our playing lesson option as well.  The on course sessions will cover course management, psychology of the game, strategies for attacking the hole and when to be conservative or aggressive in your decision making.
