THE BANNLYNCHMCDADE COACHING PHILOSOPHY

“Holistic Approach” to training includes four major training factors: technical, mental, physical, and strategic.

Our golf programs are individually tailored to meet each student’s goals and needs.

We believe a golf swing should be built around each individual’s strengths and avoid a one size fits all mentality.

A true measure of good coaching technique is giving a young player the foundation of which they can continue to build and reach their full potential.

GATEWAY TO GOLF COURSE – 4 WEEK PROGRAM

We begin with the end goal in mind – to ensure students feel comfortable playing on the golf course. We consider it our primary objective to ensure that after the 4-week period, the beginner feels comfortable and confident to play on the golf course. Every aspect of our program is designed around achieving this goal.
