Thailand offers affordable golf instruction for visiting tourists

Popularly known for providing travelers with quality golf holiday's at affordable prices, Thailand has recently surprised many of its visitors as a destination which also offers a high standard of affordable golf instruction.
Sept. 22, 2010 - PRLog -- Even with a global recession golf remains hugely popular and you will find private golf lessons still come at a high price. If you happen to be staying in any large European, North American or Asian city, you can expect to pay $100 (80 Euro) or more for an hour of golf tuition. Golf lessons are a necessity if you want a smooth entrance to the game. Many people, especially people new to golf, find the cost a little daunting and avoid taking lessons and then struggle with this wonderful game.

For instance, in Germany and Switzerland it is required for all new golfers to qualify for a “Platzreife” or golf license. The idea behind the Platzreife is to ensure that beginner golfers know the rules and etiquette of the game and acquire at least the basic skills required to play golf. This requirement adds even more pressure on the pocketbook for golfers new to the game.

One option that is not widely known to golfers is that they can achieve this golf requirement outside Europe during a holiday in Asia yet it will still be accepted at their home club. The solution to affordable, highly qualified golf instruction is at Three-Generation Golf Academy (formerly known as The Prem Golf Academy) in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Located twenty-five kilometers north of the city center, nestled in the Mae Rim valley, surrounded by mountains, lush countryside and touched by seasonable weather year round, the Three-Generation Golf Academy (TGGA) is the ideal learning center for golf instruction. The academy is the only golf school facility in Northern Thailand that is designed and dedicated to instruction:  no distractions, no hassles - just one place to refine your swing.

Offering affordable golf instruction to a large audience was a key element in the opening of the academy. The academy offers lessons at a lower cost due to its location in Thailand, due to lower labor and construction costs along with access to their comfortable and convenient on-site accommodation. Quality is not sacrificed and you will not find a golf school better-equipped than this indoor-outdoor facility which boasts a Pro V1 Professional video-swing studio, six covered hitting and chipping nets, 825 square meters of putting and chipping greens, a short game practice range with six hitting bays,  water hazard green, classroom for theory instruction and 350 yard driving range.

Three-Generation Golf Academy is committed to your individual development and success. With over twenty-five years’ teaching experience in Germany, India, Australia, USA and Thailand, the American Director of Golf and Head Teaching Professional, Spike Collier, offers personalized world-class instruction. He has mastered the way to teach golf, eliminating opinion-based golf instruction. His performance-based curriculum will build your game, your understanding and your confidence. Spike’s knowledge of golf swing components has enabled him to create very understandable teaching programmes that help players of all levels improve and realize their potential.

Three-Generation Golf Academy offers a unique and successful golf training experience. With its motto "Giving you the Knowledge for Power and Precision", the academy stands by its claim that it offers the truth about how the golf swing works and especially how the golf swing can work for you.  From short game development to driving full-out, everything you need to improve your game has been incorporated into this academy.

A private class with Spike Collier starts as low as THB 1000 (USD 32.00) per hour. Group golf instruction is also available and offers a much more affordable alternative.  Group golf instruction may or may not fit your current needs, but for many people it is a premium option as it fits nicely into their golfing budget. The academy offers full 3-5 day programmes starting as low as THB 5,750 (USD 180.00). By comparison, you will find equal programmes for double to even quadruple elsewhere in the world.  Offering special ‘golfer’ rates, all programme participants have the option to stay at their on-site accommodation, The Residence and Spa, ideally located a mere five minute walk from the academy.

When considering golf instruction, it’s certainly nice to have a fabulous vacation destination like Chiang Mai, Thailand. Great instruction is always key to a successful golf school experience; that, as well as value for your money is what you’ll find at Three-Generation Golf Academy.
