Our Academy’s philosophy about golf is informative and simple. Students will leave each lesson with a clear understanding of what you are doing and simple solutions to fix it. We judge each individual separately and give him or her the help that best fits and is most likely to lead to improvement. Each student will learn how to practice, how to play the golf course, and how to analyze your golf game to find areas that need the most improvement.

Individual private instruction is available as well if you prefer the one-on-one experience. Brent has a tremendous amount of experience in developing golfers so they are able to diagnose their own problems when they get away from the lesson tee. Brent works with the individual based on what they want to work on in their swing. Don’t forget the short game as this is the more often overlooked aspect of the game. Lindenwood offers 2 putting greens, chipping green, and bunker to assist you in improving this part of your game.
Technology such as Video, Flight Scope, and the new V1 Pressure Mat are utilized in the lesson to aid the pupil in learning the game. Come experience a lesson at Lindenwood and you’ll see why we are a leader in golf instruction and are serious in improving your golf game.
