Bird Golf Academy: Learn from the Best

Luxury Golf Schools: Those seeking a luxury travel experience at an exceptional golf school, seek out Bird Golf Academy.

By pairing the finest golf instruction with the most luxurious lodging in truly spectacular settings, Bird Golf Academy delivers discerning clients a truly memorable experience. With 15 carefully selected locations in nine states, including California, Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Nevada, Bird Golf has gained a sterling reputation for its superb facilities and incomparable instructors in singular settings.

Bird Golf's flagship school is located at the AAA Four Diamond Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa in sunny Phoenix, Arizona, the capitol of luxury golf. Situated on 372,000 pristine acres owned by the Gila River Indian Community, the resort provides a dramatic backdrop for golfers and their companions with such on-property amenities as the Mobil Four Star Kai restaurant, the stunning Aji spa with Native American treatments and the Koli equestrian center. Fine artwork from the local Pima and Maricopa tribes are elegantly woven into every aspect of this beautiful resort, which has been honored by Travel & Leisure magazine as "one of the world's most enriching, culturally authentic resorts."

The centerpiece of the property is the Whirlwind Golf Club, home to Bird Golf Academy, one of the nation's best golf schools. Two Gary Panks-designed, 18-hole championship courses, Devil's Claw and Cattail, showcase the region's natural terrain and afford panoramic views of the Sierra Estella Mountains. Both courses will impress and challenge golfers of all skill levels.

Beyond the beauty of place, Bird Golf Academy is without peer in providing first-rate golf instruction based on years of observation, teaching and research. No two golfers are the same; each has a different body type, movement dynamics and state of mind. To achieve truly outstanding results, golf instruction must be tailored to each individual's needs, goals and objectives.

Only the most accomplished PGA and LPGA professionals are part of the elite Bird Golf teaching staff. All are great playing professionals in their own right; in addition, their credentials include an extensive teaching background. Among our stellar instructors are National Head Professional Sharon Miller, a former LPGA National Teacher of the Year in 1989, and Jim Samsing, West Coast Director of Instruction, a 30-year PGA Professional and the foremost master of Clear Key systematic thought process.

Everyone knows golf is a mental game. Bird Golf's Director of Game Enhancement Carey Mumford has developed a unique, in-depth personality profile that benefits every student. Over the past 15 years, Mumford worked with more than 100 players on the PGA, LPGA and Seniors Tours and has been recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the top golf psychologist in the U.S. His analysis provides invaluable information for the instructors who utilize it to better prepare students for the links.

Each professional offers personalized, one-on-one coaching, state-of-the-art video analysis, take-home practice plans and follow-up coaching to ensure every student has the ultimate golf learning experience. After their time at Bird Golf Academy, our graduates retain the "keys to improvement," techniques designed to master both their physical and mental game that result in dramatic immediate and long-term game improvement.

Bird Golf Academy creates the optimum three, four and five-day packaging for each guest, including video and digital analysis, daily on-course playing lessons, mental game instruction, course management instruction, unlimited practice and play at the host course, daily lunch and unlimited coaching follow-up after the completion of the school. With superior service and rooms, Bird Academy students also enjoy their own private practice facilities where they are able to concentrate in seclusion. Included in each package is both unlimited use of the practice facilities and the golf courses.

Inspiring instructors, first-rate courses and luxury accommodations combine for the ultimate golf travel experience at Bird Golf Academy. To learn more about the unparalleled golf adventures that await you, please visit www.BirdGolf.com or call 877-4-BIRDGO.
