Golf Programs Fit Student Needs to a Tee


Block, Victor, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


Much of the day is spent learning how to slash strokes off your golf score. Pleasant professionals work to improve every facet of your game from driving to putting, from sand play to course strategy.

When classes end, it's time for other pursuits. Some guests opt for a spirited set of tennis, while others enjoy a dip in the pool. A lazy stroll on the beach followed by a gourmet dinner is the choice of those who like to add a touch of luxury to the tune-up of their golf game.

This is a typical setting at golf schools near and far. For everyone from duffers to low handicappers, beginners to veterans, they provide an opportunity to combine top-notch learning experiences with a range of resort amenities.

Many golf instruction schools are similar. Extras often include everything from practice balls to on-site video analysis of a student's swing. But each program also offers its own distinct touches that set it off from the rest.

You need travel no further than Williamsburg to learn the skills that have made Kingsmill Resort touring professional Curtis Strange a two-time U.S. Open champion. Kingsmill's one-day golf school provides quickie instruction for players with limited time, while the three-day Golf Academy covers every aspect of the game.

The three 18-hole layouts and nine-hole par 3 are augmented by 15 tennis courts, a complete sports club and other recreational facilities. For more information, call 800/832-5665.

Golf instruction at Wintergreen Resort in the heart of Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains includes three-, four- and five-day packages. There also are special sessions such as the parent/child programs scheduled for July 1-4.

Wintergreen is a full-service, four-season resort that extends over 11,000 acres. Golf school participants practice what they learn on the Devils Knob course, the highest in Virginia, and the Stoney Creek layout, which remains playable year-round. For more information, call 800/325-2200.

Not to be outdone, Maryland gets into the golf school swing at Ocean City. That is one location of the Original Golf School. It also offers programs ranging from two to five days at vacation destinations in Vermont, Maine and Florida.

Students at Ocean City follow morning instruction with play at Gary River Run, a rolling Gary Player signature course. The Florida school is held at the Plantation Inn & Golf Resort in Crystal River near Tampa. When school is in, nine of the property's 27 holes are reserved for students to practice and play. Recess means enjoying the facilities of the luxurious inn.

For more information about any Original Golf School location, call 800/240-2555.

With more than 80 courses, Myrtle Beach, S.C., has a right to call itself "the seaside golf capital of the world.
