Editors' Choice: Best Golf Schools & Academies
Whether you’re interested in turning your annual buddies trip into a game improvement experience, adding a learn-a-new-sport component to family vacation or looking for the most convenient and accessible way to work with a world-famous teacher, Golf Digest’s list of best academies is the place to start. Choose from perennial (and famous) favorites like Butch Harmon’s Nevada school, David Leadbetter and Jim McLean’s Florida offerings or places at bucket list courses like Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes and Whistling Straits. Want to work with the same coaches that teach on tour? Visit Vision 54 in Scottsdale, the Blackburn Golf Academy in Birmingham or the PGA Tour Performance Center itself, in Ponte Vedra. Options range from single-day schools for the cost of a nice driver to three- and five-day game transformation odysseys that can eclipse $5,000. Find a school for your interest and budget from the list below.
By the way, we'd be remiss not citing our own Golf Digest Schools Live program that offers clinics with top teachers at select locations around the US.
