Golfers learn from the game’s best at Old Palm Golf Club
December 12, 2011
Practice makes perfect, especially if youâre a golfer practicing with some of the Top 100 Golf Teachers in America. More than 30 golfers were doing just that at the Golf Studio at Old Palm Golf Club during the weekend of December 4-6. Our own Director of Instruction, Mark Hackett, who is also one of those elite 100 instructors, led the much anticipated golf school event. It began casually Friday afternoon, as the participants were given fitness screenings to reveal their gamesâ weaknesses and strengths. Afterwards, they got acquainted and swapped golf stories at a cocktail party. On Saturday morning, the instruction began in earnest as the golfers were taught all sorts of easy-to-follow tips to improve every aspect of their games. Dr. Craig Farnsworth, the famed optometrist-turned-putting-guru, showed golfers his step-by-step prescription for building a reliable putting stroke. Mike Adams, creator of the LAWS of Golf philosophy, showed golfers…

The 19th or “bye hole” on our course is a devilish, 99-yard Par 3 with an island green. It takes a heroic shot to get close to the pin, and hazards are everywhere. Depending on the wind and your tolerance for risk, you could hit anything from a sand wedge to a 7- or even a 6-iron. Be sure to give it a shot after your round. It’s one of the few Scottish-style 19th holes in America and…
