Step your Game up! Part 2

Category: Golf Resort

Last week, we took a closer look at the BOYNE Golf Academy and its flagship training program, The BOYNE Golf Performance Experience which takes a holistic approach to the game. This week we continue observing the programs offered by the BOYNE Golf Academy and shed a little light on some of our other avenues for stepping up your game.

Following suit of the BOYNE Golf Performance Experience, The Junior Elite Program is a truly unique training program for anybody ages 9-19 looking to further develop their skills and improve their game. Designed with competitive golfers in mind, the Junior Elite Program is a year-round platform that even includes continued instruction in the winter months! Providing three private lessons per month from June through September, eight team practice sessions held each week on Thursday, unlimited use of the practice facilities, club fitting and swing analysis using GEARS and TrackMan, as well as a walking membership on The Moor course. Participants will also work with a Titelist Performance Institute specialist to develop a personalized fitness and training program helping the golfer improve their game from all angles. This program includes both local athletes, as well as athletes from down state and has been "...built up of talented young players fostering a wonderful opportunity to continue elevating your game- playing with other talented golfers is one of the best things you can do for your game" said Brian O'Neill, Director of Golf Instruction.

The BOYNE Golf Academy also teamed up with Nike to provide seven sessions of Nike Junior Golf Camps throughout the summer. "Come live the resort lifestyle for five days, play in the pool, go on a Zipline Adventure Tour, and play on world-class golf courses daily" said O'Neill. Campers would arrive on a Sunday and enjoy taking advantage of all of the excellent opportunities for fun until it is time to leave on Thursday. The Nike Golf Camps have become "some of the most popular (golf) camps in the country, and they continue to increase in size each year." Open to campers ages 10-18, and you can commute daily for locals. O'Neill added shortly after that "these kinds of camps weren't around when I was growing up, but you can bet that I would have been all in!"

Groups of men often come to play our courses as a part of 'man's weekend,' leaving their significant other back at home. We decided to put together the Couples Golf School designed with your other half as the main ingredient and fun as the icing on top! O'Neill added that "the joy that can come from learning a great game with your life partner is the reason that the BOYNE Golf Academy also offers the very unique Couples Golf School." The focus is on eliminating intimidating factors, learning the ways of the game, and receiving some instruction about how to better your game. Adding in a trip to The Spa at Boyne Highlands is an excellent way to really feel the full resort experience. Covering all aspects of the game of golf, couples can expect to go over some of the rules of the game, as well as take advantage of the fabulous technology offered by the BOYNE Golf Academy. After assessing and analyzing the swing, couples and instructors step outside to work on the technique associated with short game before getting out on the course to put their new skills to use!

It is no secret that there are more male golfers than female. Seeking to balance the scales a little bit, "we created the FORE Ladies Only golf program with the intention of breaking down the barriers potentially keeping women out of the game" said O'Neill. By working in a private instruction area separate from the standard practice facilities, the distraction of who might be watching is eliminated and the participant can focus on learning or improving their game. Another focal point for this program is building a general understanding of the rules of the game and proper course etiquette.  After 8+ hours of instruction in addition to the information covered in the sessions, ladies should feel confident to head out and play whenever they want, wherever they want because after all, they just played some of the best courses in the state.

Thanks for reading the second installment of the BOYNE Golf Instruction series! Interested in signing up for any of our great programs? Call 231.526.3848 today! Next week we will be taking an up close look at the latest technological addition to BOYNE Golf Academy...GEARS GOLF!
