Pointers For A Good Choice Of Golf School

Pointers for a Good Choice of Golf School

According to GOLF Magazine, the Phil Ritson - Mel Sole Golf School is included among the top five good – if not best – golf schools in the United States. Every year since 1999, this school appears and is included among the ten best golf academies.

The Basis of the Rankings

These were according to a variety of reasons which includes the teaching quality of the golf professors, the school program and facilities, as well as the hundreds if not thousands of golf graduates that were surveyed and asked to rate the experiences they had from attending the school.

According to this particular school, they help students achieve his or her personal best, always.

Teaching Principle

The teaching principle in this golf school was formulated by Phil Ritson - he used to be a coach to Gary Player as well as other stars in the PGA – and Mel Sole, who is a veteran of the PGA Tour in South Africa.

Good golf schools such as this cater to a host of golfers in different levels of skill, knowledge and expertise. They should also be open to anyone from the golf beginner and the advanced. Also, a low student to teacher ratio is best so that ample time and attention is given to teaching and learning golf without it being too expensive and unaffordable.

Visual Aids

The selection of the good golf schools as according to GOLF Magazine depended also on the various aids used in teaching the game. However, though computer generated golf swing models are used to illustrate a good golf swing, up to video analysis software that consists of four cameras to capture that perfect or imperfect shot with hopes of further improving on it, and acres upon acres of land range all help in making it conducive to study golf. Still, nothing beats a school’s quality teaching instructions and curriculum.

Instructor's Credentials

The golf instructor’s teaching credentials is one of the basis in the selection of good golf schools. How many years have they been teaching? How many of these teachers actually are professionals that are included in the PGA, are Class A or belong to LPGA?

In GOLF Magazine’s selection, price was not included. They considered this factor as very little in the overall golf school selection since they consider that the primary reason for attending a golf school is for one to better his or her game, regardless of the price it would take for anyone to do so.
