The Incline Village Golf Academy, headquartered at the Incline Village Championship Course in North Lake Tahoe, is a cooperative approach to golf instruction that offers a wide range of private and semi-private lesson options, golf clinics, junior golf programs and custom club fitting services. We offer programs designed to involve people from all walks of life in the game of golf, while supporting the PGA of America’s "growth of the game" initiative.
Our instruction philosophy is to teach each student how to shape their individual swing to produce the ball flight they desire. By learning how to correctly improve the shape of your swing, you will be able to produce a more consistent ball flight, increasing your enjoyment of the game and lowering your score. Video analysis and FlightScope technology is available for all lessons.
