I had been looking for golf classes for quite some time, first and foremost to get my swing back, and also to improve it after a five-year break from golf. While golf is quite difficult as it is, at the Golf Natural Guidance Academy I found they have a simple way of teaching that avoids technical complications. They give your four or five basic guidelines, and then you’re ready to go out and hit the ball. After a short time, I managed to get my swing back and play to my handicap, and now I’m moving on to my next goal, which is getting it down by one. And I won’t even consider changing my golf pro.
The Natural Golf Management Academy at Arabella Golf Mallorca has meant taking a huge step forward in the development of the training activities we carry out at our golf courses.
With over 220 students, the Junior Golf Academy is now a role model among schools not only in the islands, but also nationwide.
Natural Golf Management’s independence when it comes to designing its own training system makes it the perfect example of a symbiosis which can help achieve improvement in the results attained in every arena, coupling professional potential with the right installations needed to develop it.
The best thing about GNG is that they have managed to change my swing to fit my body and my way of moving, making it much more consistent while also preventing injuries.
