DLF Golf Academy
The DLF Golf Academy is the first professional golf school in the country.A panel of highly trained instructors teach golf in a structured manner, yet cater to needs of every individual golfer. The instructors recognize that students learn golf for a variety of reasons and the pace of learning is unique to each student. Programs are designed to suit all levels of golfers. The team specializes in juniors programs, and in use of golf teaching technology for all levels of golfers.At the Academy, a student can practice any kind of shot that he or she may encounter on the course. Long game practice is done either from specialized astro turf or from natural grass. A well designed short game area gives all students an opportunity to practice a variety of shots from 80 yards in. Undulating lies to strategic pins located over a bunker challenge a student to simulate shots played on the course. A large bunker adds to the variety. A large sized, undulating putting green not only plays true and fast, but also caters to a good number of students and Academy users. It has a floodlit dual-level driving range where you can choose to practice either from a state of the art AstroTurf mat or from natural turf. The highly popular mats have been imported from Fiber-built, a Canadian based company, which supplies mats to some of the best facilities in the world. The entire concept is that of creating a practice facility that gives the golfer an opportunity to practice any kind of shot that he may encounter on the course.
The Academy was opened in 1999 and over the last decade and a half has been instrumental in providing golf instruction to most of the DLF Golf Club members, juniors, corporates and to many top amateurs and professionals in the country. The Academy has a panel of six highly qualified golf instructors. All instructors are certified by the National Golf Academy of India, and come with more than 15 years of teaching experience.
