Hone Your Game at North Carolina Golf Schools

Precision Golf School in Greensboro

Golf is a game no one ever masters, even the world’s best players. But it’s always possible to become a better player. One of the fastest routes to game improvement is professional coaching. Individual lessons can work wonders, but for those who hate to wait, total immersion in a golf school is the most gratifying path to rapid advancement. And North Carolina is a leader in multi-day golf schools with proven reputations for producing results.

Dana Rader Golf School
Dana Rader has earned the prestigious ranking as one of the top 50 teachers in the country from Golf Magazine, and her Dana Rader Golf School at the Ballantyne Hotel & Lodge in Charlotte offers year-round learning opportunities, including two-day and three-day programs.

The programs feature highly personalized instruction designed for each golfer’s unique needs and skill level, under the guidance of certified PGA and LPGA professionals. The schools include hands-on full swing and short game golf instruction, as well as on-course coaching.

Pine Needles Golf Academy and Golfaris
Southern Pines
What’s a “Golfari,” you ask? Created by legendary Peggy Kirk Bell, one of the founding members of the LPGA Tour and one of Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers (Emeritus), a “Golfari” is a unique multi-day blend of learning, playing and relaxing at Pine Needles Resort in Southern Pines. Experienced PGA and LPGA instructors mix instruction on the lesson tee and the resort’s respected Donald Ross course, which has hosted three U.S. Women’s Open Championships. There are Golfaris for adults and juniors, but the ladies-only events are among the most popular.

The Pine Needles Golf Academy provides instruction on all aspects of golf, including putting, chipping, pitching, full swing, course management and fitness.

Pinehurst Golf Academy
Master golf designer Donald Ross crafted America’s first driving range at Pinehurst Resort, still affectionately known as “Maniac Hill.” Today, the Pinehurst Golf Academy helps golf maniacs of all types groove their games with programs built around a low four-to-one student-to-teacher ratio.

Focus is on the fundamentals – full swing, short game and bunker play – reinforced by on-course instruction on one of the resort’s eight layouts.

This is only a select handful of the professional golf instruction available across North Carolina. That should come as no surprise in a state that boasts more than 500 golf courses from the mountains to the coast, and regularly hosts some of the game’s most prestigious amateur and professional tournaments.

Precision Golf School
Under the guidance of respected golf teacher Robert Linville, the Precision Golf School operates programs at three locations in North Carolina’s Triad region – Bryan Park, Stoney Mill and Bur-Mil Park. A popular option are the two-day and three-day schools that includes one-on-one instruction, playing lessons and video analysis using Swing View Pro Technology. The overall objective is comprehensive game improvement.
