Get Golf Ready
Take Your Golfing Skills to the Next Level!
The PGA’s Get Golf Ready Program is devoted to developing new golfers through a fun, informative, and efficient introduction to the game of golf. The Treetops Resort Golf Academy strongly supports this initiative and, consequently, adheres to this format in order to keep the player engaged and pressure & disappointment free. Please join us at our Get Golf Ready Program and begin your lifelong relationship with this wonderful game. The formats each week will all include discussing the rules and etiquette that are staples of the game. Weekly formats are as follows:
WEEK 1 (June 23 or 25)—Putting: It is the PGA of America and the Treetops Resort Golf Academy’s contention that the game of golf is most effectively learned moving from the green backwards to the tee. With this in mind, the first week will feature an introduction to the game and cover the fundamentals of putting, such as equipment, grip, setup (alignment, posture, ball position) and pre/post shot routine. On a positive note, many of these fundamentals will transfer to the other parts of the game that we will be discussing in the weeks moving forward. Additionally, we will discuss the 4 elements to putting that are required to become a proficient putter.
WEEK 2 (June 30 or July 2)—Chipping & Short Game: This week’s class will move a bit further from the green when we tackle the art of the Short Game. These are the shots from around the green that we face regularly during a round of golf. This will include chipping, pitching, and bunker shots, as well as a discussion of what clubs to utilize in order to maximize our efficiency.
WEEK 3 (July 7 or 9)—Irons & Full Swing: In week 3, we venture into the land of the full swing. We will focus on how to choose the proper iron for each shot, and how to contend with playing from lies in both the fairway and the rough. Additionally, we will cover fairway bunker play and how the techniques used for these shots differ from those utilized from greenside bunkers.
WEEK 4 (July 14 or 16)—Driver & Full Swing: It’s time to Grip it & Rip it in week 4 as we move into full swings with the Driver. We will also address how to hit Fairway Metals during this session, and the difference in techniques between hitting these clubs versus the Driver.
WEEK 5 (July 21 or 23)—Playing A Hole: It is now time to introduce students to playing a hole on the golf course, which is the ultimate purpose of the Get Golf Ready program. Following a final review of the full swing and a warm-up session, we will venture onto the golf course to play 1-2 holes, focusing on practical skill application. We will also discuss how to deal with water hazards, lost balls, out of bounds, and other circumstances we might encounter during a round of golf.
