About Reid West Golf Academies

Golf: Find the Passion Introduction

Do you wonder why your friends and neighbors are golf fanatics? Why do they spend so much time learning, practicing and playing golf? Well, sinking a long putt and chipping in from off the green are just a couple of exciting experiences that get people hooked on golf. The surprises, spectacular moments and struggles can make golfers so passionate the will search the rest of their lives for more golf greatness.

Reid West Golf Academies has developed a multi-level program that gives anyone the opportunity to experience this excitement and possibly “Find the Passion” for golf. We will provide you with fundamental understanding of the game of golf and the basic skills to play with confidence. This is a great way to learn in a group setting along with others who may have the same questions as you.

The program is broken down into four main levels or “Swings”, where each level will cover these main topics:

Golf Facilities, Rules and Etiquette: We will cover different areas of the golf course so you become comfortable using them. Each level will discuss basic golf course etiquette and the rules of golf. Not being familiar with “pace of play” is one common issue that keeps people from starting to play golf on their own.

Golf Club User Instructions and Swing Fundamentals: Learn basic golf equipment design and receive “user instructions” for each club in the bag. Golfers need to learn how to use the tools they are given to play the game, instead of the old saying, “Use the same swing for every club”.

Practical Applications and Goals: Teaches specific skills to help you perform better on the course. We outline general goals that you should work toward as you add each skill and progress through each level. Obviously, if you can play better or score better, you will get more enterainment and enjoyment from the game of golf.

These 4 “Swings” are what we believe best prepare you to get on the golf course and “Find the Passion”: Open invitation to Golf: Open house introduction for new or beginner golfers.
