Instruction

50% off your next round of golf with any purchase of instruction

The golf swing is a very intricate movement of the joints and muscles of the body which happens in a very short period of time. When someone plays well their experience is a very free effortless motion that is devoid of swing thoughts, and happens at a pace that feels as if they are not being rushed to the conclusion.

Special Needs Golf Lessons

Little Linksters GOALS program, or Golf Outreach Advances Life Skills was originally designed to help make the game more inclusive for children with special needs, ages 3 and up. Children can gain so very much through their participation in our game. We feel strongly that each child deserves the right to take part. We see no labels in golf. Because of this, we have expanded our efforts to make golf inclusive of every child regardless of what labels society at large may put on them. Now available at The McCord Golf Academy.
