COVID-19 Updates: The Incline Village General Improvement District strives to provide access to our recreation venues, including the Golf Courses, while staying in compliance with state and local government regulations around proper social distancing during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please obey all signage and staff guidance at the courses.

Visit the COVID-19 news page to review the current rules and regulations prior to planning your lesson.


The Incline Village Golf Academy is open, but we will be implementing new safety procedures to ensure proper social distancing. We will not be conducting any in-person group lessons to start. (updated 6/10/2020)

The 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. Video analysis and FlightScope technology is available for all lessons. 

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.
