Teaching Philosophy

Three principles guide our lesson programming.

1. Each individual’s physical capabilities.
2. Each individual's understanding of the golf swing and their learning style.
3. The golf club's influence on ball flight.

The Studio - Clubfitting

What was once known as the “Fitting Centre” has been completely renovated into what is now known as “The Studio.” The Studio at Cordova Bay is a state-of-the-art learning centre equipped with the latest and greatest launch monitor technology, fitting equipment from Callaway and PING, and an outstanding artificial putting surface for indoor training sessions. The cornerstone of this project was the addition of a Foresight GC Quad Launch monitor. For those who aren’t familiar, a launch monitor is a machine that is used to measure the exact characteristics of the golfer’s ball flight and golf swing. The monitor provides information such as carry distance, ball spin, apex height, club head speed, strike location, club path, and many more advanced metrics.

We know what you’re thinking…. How in the world could something like that be helpful for my game? In short, this technology is extremely helpful in teaching all skill levels. This information helps your coach figure out the ins and outs of your unique swing much faster. From there, your coach can help you build a plan towards improvement that is streamlined specifically for you.

Group Programming

Most monthly programs listed below are on going and can be taken more than one time. Golf takes repetition so we recommend students consider repeating programs.

New to Golf: The Ridge Course Par 3

The New to Golf program is designed around players who either have never touched a club before, or have had some experience in the past and are looking to get back into the game. Golf can be quite intimidating. Our program focuses around both building the skills required to play on course and also building the confidence in new golfers to feel like they belong!

Golf isn't learned in 4 classes, but it makes a great start. We recommend that students consider doing the program for multiple months to really build on that start.
