Academy at Credit Valley Coaching Philosophy

The goal of Teaching and Coaching golf is about giving the golfer(s) a learning environment that gives them the very best opportunity to learn.

“How do you know where you want to go
if you don’t have a map to get you there?”

This statement is the cornerstone of the Academy at Credit Valley. Our goal is to build each student their own “Road Map” in golf to help them reach their goals.

The Academy at Credit Valley will be a destination for the members to come to the golf club and encounter leading edge technology and consistent, detailed instruction from every Team Member of the Academy and Professional Staff.

Following the “Road Map” process allows:

Consistency – Golfers are looking for consistency in their golf. It’s vital that we offer them a constant product for their learning. It shows focus and that we are working to be the very best for them at each lesson, clinic and camp.

Direction – Giving each student clear and precise direction on their route to success will solidify their expectations and help them further understand the pathway we have set out

Clarity – A lot of times students have “misunderstood” the information given to them during their instruction. We must make it our mission that we provide an education for both ourselves and for the student with clear and concise instruction concepts so they understand what was taught.

Answers – Following the correct evaluation and screening process we will be able to give answers based on fact. We will take the “guesswork” out of where to start, the path to take and how to navigate the “Road Map” to achieve their goals and play better golf.

I know that the programs and learning offered at the Academy at Credit Valley will enable you to lower your scores and play the golf you want to.

I look forward to seeing you!
