Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy is a full-time boarding and non-boarding golf academy that offers a variety of programs. We offer summer camps, full-time, post-graduate, customized and adult programs. But we also offer post graduate high school students a chance to study with us for a year before they apply to college.
Our post graduate program was designed to prepare young players for collegiate golf and beyond. It gives individuals between the ages of 17 and older an extra year to improve their golf game in order to compete effectively on the collegiate level without losing a year of eligibility or to become a professional tour player.
This program consists of nine months of intense training that focuses on golf instruction, sports psychology and physical fitness. Special emphasis is placed on the transition to the collegiate or tour level. This program starts in August and ends in May.
