3 days to golf - Academy??

8 posts in this topic

My wife has given me a pass to go away for three days to decompress from work and the kids. I immediately thought of a 3-day golf trip, but have always wondered about a 3-day golf school/academy. I'll probably go solo, as this is a spur of the moment trip.

I take lessons once a month, but would really love to get hands-on training for a few days in a row. I'm about a 10 hcp, Usually shoot 82-85, but have shot in the 70's a dozen times, 74 is my best.

Any suggestions on where to go for a school/academy?

Thank you in advance,

Mike

I realize Michigan wasn't one of your choices but you should at least look at Tree Tops and / or Boyne.   They are some of the best in the country.  Currently the weather is good but if you blink...

Years ago I attended a 5-day golf school.  It was extremely helpful and I suspect the current versions are even better.  One pro and 3 students.

I won't recommend the particular school because I doubt it is the same now as a couple of decades ago and it was located in VT.  But I think your idea to use the time for a golf school is spot on.

James and Mike are running a course on May 18 and 19 down here at James' new home at Reunion Resort.  Spend a day or two with them, and then play some golf in the Orlando area.  Weather is GREAT right now and we've just had a good amount of much needed rain.  Courses are in great shape!

Why not do both?  Find a course that you really want to play and get daily lessons from the club pro while you are there.  I'd bet the pro at something like TPC Sawgrass would be really solid.

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
