Our new student evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of a client’s functional movement, golf mechanics, and motor learning skills. Once baseline testing is completed the instructor will develop a pattern and practice plan to accomplish the students desired outcome. This process requires a minimum of two hours to complete. Clients are encouraged to select that half and full day evaluation which includes a short game and nine hole playing assessment following the baseline testing. Once a student has completed their evaluation hourly coaching is available by appointment through the online scheduler on our site.

2021 Spring PDEV Ladies

The Spring Women’s PDEV curriculum was created using our Blackburn Golf Academy PDEV concepts. The sessions are specifically designed to help women break through specific scoring barriers. By the end of the 8 weeks you will have some specific tools in your toolbox that you can use as weapons to lower your scores.  Whether you want to break 100 or 90 or 80, or just learn to play the game and begin to keep score...I want to help you make a breakthrough this season!

• Almost 40% of shots are on the putting green so we will be incorporating green reading, putting routines and distance control.
