Perfect Your Swing

The Abaco Club offers only private golf instruction to ensure a comprehensive and customized learning experience. We are able to instruct all facets of your game at our newly enhanced practice facility, which features both long and short game areas. A variety of weekly clinics and golf schools are also available throughout the year. 

Instruction Philosophy:

  • A great teacher provides a program for improvement, not just a single lesson. Fixing a habit requires practice and time through a continued program of instruction.
  • Provide equal emphasis on short game and long game.
  • Recommendations for swing changes will be based off ball flight and ball flight rules. 
  • Implementation of other athletics will assist in the learning process.
  • Students must practice on their own in order to see the fastest results. 
  • Course management and course play over practice facility usage. 
  • There is no one way to swing the golf club - everyone is different. 
  • The goal is to have the student complete their program with an understanding of how to correct themselves when on the golf course or practicing individually.
