The Golf Complex is certainly our greatest accomplishment. In Western Kentucky we now have a facility where golf can be played year round. Students can now practice and work on their game in any type of weather. The goal of the teaching staff is two fold. Provide a learning atmosphere that is priced affordable. Create more interest in the game of golf through our junior programs. The affordability of a Range membership and the Junior range membership certainly assist in everyone being able to afford and enjoy the game of golf.
My teaching philosophy is very simple. I believe in building a swing from the ground up. The lower body gives us direction in the game. A good foundation of position and balance are the cornerstone of all great players. Second the upper body turn and swing is built upon the player's physique. Everyone is built differently thus everyone has a different swing plane. You must be able to accept your body type in order to produce a swing that is most efficient to you. There are three basic types of players. Leverage, width, and arc are the general categories of players. Most will be a combination of two categories.
Lessons are important for all of us who wish to excel in this wonderful game. We recommend while learning you should take at least two per month. Once you have reached your level of play then our recommendation is one per month. It definitely takes a commitment to retain or excel your current level of play.
