The Academy – SCHOLARS, SCIENTISTS, ARTISTS – All found here!

From our title, it is easy to decipher that this is the place to go if you want to brush up on your golf game. However, what isn’t so self-explanatory is what ‘Academy’ actually means, and how it differs from your average range. The word academy can be defined as “a society or institution of distinguished scholars, artists and scientists that aims to promote and maintain standards in its particular field”. For me, this is the perfect definition to sum up the Golfing Union of Irelands National golf community, (and it’s not just because we play golf in a field). Let me expand;

The Academy is essentially a service, and in the world of business a service only works when people are involved! The players that use the academy are what makes up the essence of the golf culture here. The way I see it, the Academy community can de categorised into three different parties;

The Scholars
  1. The scholars: this party is made up of the players that come to learn and improve their game. These people have taken an interest in the sport and have made the commitment to go on a personal journey of self improvement. This party is the biggest because it is made up of all level of golfers that share the same ambition – to advance their game, no matter what their starting point is.
  1. The Scientists: this party is one of the smaller groups who are dedicated to helping the scholars that come into the academy community. Our PGA professional’s combine the science side of golf with the scholar’s ability and adapt their teaching style to cater for player preferences.

The Artists
  1. The Artists: this party is made up of players who have combined the above two categories. These people are on the road to mastering the game and approach practice with a more refined outlook. Sometimes, being around these players can be intimidating. However, since the Academy’s top class facilities attract this calibre of player we like to think of them as the inspirations within the community. And, honestly, they like the attention…

The Academy service aims to alleviate all parties so that the people who make up this community can learn and be inspired.
