Golf is a very individual sport. No two students or their games are identical. With this in mind, Academy programs are adaptable to the specific goals and needs of each student or group.
The advantage of the Nicklaus Academy Orlando is our ability to customize your 'experience' to match with your goals, past experiences with the game and instruction, and your overall desire to improve your and swing and shoot lower scores. Golf is a very difficult game; one that even the winner of 18-majors states "can never be mastered". No two of us are alike and put together the same - mentally or physically. Therefore, instruction MUST be personalized in order to be effective and enjoyable.
Choose from full swing, short game, trouble shots or putting - or let us address every facet of your game. Your instruction is based on your goals, not the goals of the Nicklaus Academies Certified Instructor. Private lessons are available in single 1-hour or 3-hour sessions, or in a series of 6 or 12 60-minute lesson packages.
9-hole On-Course Playing Lessons are offered for students of all ability levels. It is important that each student has the tools and understanding to take their 'range game' to the golf course effectively.
Treat yourself to a complete overview of the golf swing and learn the fundamentals that remain as valuable today as when Jack Nicklaus was taught the game. We limit our Nicklaus Academy Clinics, Adult or Junior, to a 6:1 ratio so that everyone in the group receives the personal attention they deserve. You have the option of putting together your own group or attend one of the regularly scheduled Academy Clinics.
Learn how to "Hit The Big Ball" by maximizing both distance and accuracy with the driver. Jack Nicklaus was regarded as the greatest driver of the ball during his era. This fun and entertaining session is limited to 4 students and will include a Flightscope Driver Optimization session during the Driving School.
Learn how to "Shave Strokes Off Your Score" by attending this specialty session that is focused on dialing in your scoring clubs; the ones you use inside of 100-yards. Your score is the result of how well you master the short game. All facets necessary to lower your score including putting, chipping, pitching, bunkers and short irons will be addressed in a 4:1 ratio class at the Academy Short Game Training Center.
The future of the game of golf lies in the hands of our juniors. Programs and camps are offered based on experience, ability, age and goals of the first time student to those of aspiring juniors looking to play at the highest level. Contact the Academy to discuss your junior's goals and schedule a time to visit and determine the best program and path in order to achieve his or her goals in the game.
There is no better family activity in the world than playing golf together. Time spent on a beautiful golf course in the fresh air getting exercise away from the rush of daily life can never be a bad thing for a family. Learn as a family to fully appreciate and enjoy your time together with this great game.
The couple that plays together, stays together. And if they both enjoy the game and are progressing 'together', even better. The advantage of understanding one another's game, and knowing what areas each is working on and the terminology being used, will enhance future rounds of golf together. Schedule a Couples Lesson with another couple to double the fun.
Choose from a half-day program, or 1, 2, 3 or 5-day programs, or longer, if that is your desire. Each 'experience' will be customized based on your available time and goals.
The Academy will customize any of its programs to meet the needs of groups or companies. Groups large and small of any and all ability levels can be accommodated for clinics ranging from 1 hour to 1/2 day, full day, and even multiple days. Complete packages including golf rounds, accommodations, meals and activities can be arranged.
There is not a better place than the Nicklaus Academy at Orlando World Center Marriott to come and totally immerse yourself and your game in. Complete programs will be personalized to match with your goals and budget including instruction and on-course sessions so that you will understand how to take your swing to the golf course. World-class Marriott accommodations and amenities are included in the total package including free transportation to Disneyworld, just 2-miles away.
Utilizing a combination of our technologies and hands-on experience, the Academy will evaluate your swing and equipment, and make recommendations as to what products can maximize your swing.
