The first step to improvement can be daunting. There are plenty of options and plenty of questions. Where do you start? Which coach is the best? What amount of time will you have to put in to get better? That’s why we developed the Complete Game New Student Assessment.
This is an opportunity to meet and interact with the best golf coaches in Southern California in a relaxed, nurturing environment. The coach you select will take the time to evaluate your game with the help of our PGA Tour Level Technology and recommend programs that align with your goals, time and resources. If you really want to shoot consistently lower scores and have more fun playing golf, this is your opportunity to take your first step.
Each assessment is unique to the individual Golfer, but one can reasonably expect these aspects of a New Student Assessment to take place during your 90 Minute Session.
The New Student Assessment always starts with the opportunity to get to know your Southern California Golf Academy Coach. This will include a discussion about your goals, physical fitness and current skill level.
