Teaching Philosophy

Many golf schools and instructors attempt to teach golf to people. Our approach to instruction is to put people - like you - first. The teaching philosophy has endured  because our system is anchored in the belief that we teach people... to play golf.

The difference is more than one of semantics. When attending a school at Pinewild, your game is individually evaluated and, while emphasizing the basic principles of golf, we tailor our instruction to meet your individual needs. More specifically, we relate the dynamics of the golf swing in an understandable manner and we explain how these fundamental laws apply to your specific swing.

When this philosophy is applied to your golf game, the contrasts between the Pinewild teaching system and other teaching methods soon become obvious - especially in your performance on the golf course.
