The Academy that Wins - Golf Tournaments

A personalised tournament calendar is established by the academy at the beginning of each semester together with each golfer. The calendar may vary according to student's golf level and personal objectives. Our main goal is to allow each student to play maximum of national and international tournaments to gain a great tournament experience and be able to get into European and world ranking. For those students, who still don't have the level to play high level tournaments, internal or club competitions are organised regularly.

Academy's students showed excellent results in the high level tournaments for the past 3 years with 34 tournaments won, 43 places in the top 3 and 58 places in the top 10
