HOT OFF THE PRESS!!!!

Players Program Announcement!!!  Golf Concepts Player and Instructor Certification Program!

In addition to the other golf instructional programs we offer (see information below), we now have a special type of program for high level players. Have you ever wanted to work in the golf industry, but were only motivated by teaching and playing? You don't like the pro shop, you don't want to fold shirts for a living, you just want to play tournaments and teach for a living? Well, Golf Concepts has a brand new program just for you!  This program is for golfers across the world. It is called the Players Certification Program, where you will be able to secure your industry position in the area of teaching and playing, by proving your playing ability, and learning the best methods to teach the game of golf!  We will provide you with an educational platform to get you to understand swing theory, and connect you with other golfers of a high ability level, and help place you in industry positions across the world.

This program will give you the fundamentals of playing and the fundamentals of teaching golf. Our expert staff in this area consists of top Instructors, a PGA Tour caddie who will offer advice on golf course management.

You will be required to pass a playing test, administered by our staff, or in association with approved golf courses around the globe, and the test is rigorous-you must score at least 75 or better in one of two rounds you play under tournament conditions, at approximately 6600 yards. Not for the faint of heart, but, that is the point, this playing certification means something, and will be presented that way when we place you in the industry.


Here is a listing of the other golf instructional programs we offer:


  • A program for individuals looking to learn the game of golf, those who wish to take their game to the next level, and those wishing to qualfity for, or improve their position on,  a Professional Tour. This instruction is done with an indoor teaching studio as well as out on the golf course.
  • The second program helps to train an indivdual to become a Certified Golf Instructor, though the use of written material, at home internet based training, and in-person instruction, if feasible for the student. Upon completion, you are a Certified Teaching Professional, able to secure a job at a teaching facility!

Golf Concepts Golf Academy is designed to provide golf instruction to players of all ability levels.  Our founder's  instructional method respects individual needs and differences while incorporating golf swing fundamentals. Alternatively, you can become a Certified Golf Instructor with our combination internet learning program and in-person mentoring.

For a beginner, you will be provided with an A to Z primer consisting of rules and etiquette, as well as swinging the club, putting, chipping, pitching, and all the knowledge you need to feel comfortable the first time on the golf course as well as a take home instructional manual.

For intermediate and advanced players, a computer video swing analysis assessment determines a player’s individual instructional refinements.  From there, a customized program is developed which will create a solid foundation for change.  Whether it be a swing modification or course management plan, all essential elements will be addressed to give you the confidence to raise the level of your game.
