Our Approach

At CGA, we understand that every golfer also has different levels of flexibility, body structure and strength. Taking into account these individual differences, we facilitate each golfer’s game through easy to understand communication and kinesthetic teaching. The game of golf begins with the grip, body posture and alignment. We examine everything from the mechanics of a student’s swing to the all-important short game. Columbus Golf Academy strives to make the game of golf less complicated and more fun! Through a variety of teaching aides and drills, CGA is committed to making the game of golf more enjoyable for all golfers at all levels!
