Our Incline Village Golf Academy, headquartered at the Incline Village Championship Course, 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.
The collaborative approach to instruction encourages students to work with either of the Teaching Professionals in developing their golf game, while ensuring there is a seamless handoff between the two instructors.
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.
Golf instruction is available on all areas of the game, including full swing, pitching, chipping and putting, as well as on-course playing lessons. Lessons and clinics that use the practice areas include practice balls and clubs are available upon request.
