Golf Lessons

At Portmore Golf Academy we want your golf lesson experience to be enjoyable, friendly and customised to your experience and ability level.

We have an experienced PGA Professional at Portmore who is here to help you to improve every aspect of your game. We recognise that no golfer swings their golf club in the same way but one thing is certain, to control a golf ball during a round of golf it helps to understand the fundamentals.

Each individual golf lesson is 40 minutes in length, includes the use of Flightscope radar ball tracking technology and also leading professional swing analysis software Analyzrgolf. At the end of each individual lesson, you will be sent emailed feedback, which will include any video taken during the lesson for you to refer to.

The excellent facilities at Portmore include two golf courses that are suited to any standard of golfer, a high quality 23 bay driving range with Power Tee technology and an excellent practice putting green and short game area. These can all be used to maximise your golfing improvement and enjoyment during your golf lessons.

*Driving *Wedges
