Short Game School - The Scoring Seminar

Did you know, regardless of your handicap, that over 60% of your total score is composed of shots made within 100 yards of the green? Yet so often golfers practice and take lessons in only their full swing. The quickest way for any golfer to reduce their score is to improve their short game. At The Practice Facility, we utilize our state-of-the-art practice facility to isolate and improve shot-making techniques on and around the green. Our instructors will introduce score reducing improvements in your style of putting, chipping, pitching and bunker play. We will offer practice strategies, drills and games to make your short game practice more productive and fun. Commit to lower scores this season by improving your short game.
