Orlando's Waldorf Astoria Golf Club adds new teaching academy
Perhaps Orlando’s top luxury golf experience, the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club, has unveiled a new golf academy for 2011.
The golf club, which opened in 2009, boasts a Rees Jones classically-designed championship golf course, firm and fast playing conditions, and a second-to-none secluded atmosphere in the shadow of Disney World. I’m a huge fan of their complimentary continental breakfast bar in the clubhouse, the changing of your spikes when you arrive at the bag drop and the scented cold towels both at the turn and upon completion of your round. Better yet, it’s all footsteps away from both the Waldorf Astoria Orlando resort and adjoining Hilton Bonnet Creek.
So I can only imagine the details used in the new teaching academy. Heading up the teaching operation is Brian Mogg, whose stable of students have won 22 professional victories in the last ten years. That includes Y.E. Yang’s PGA Championship win over Tiger Woods, as well as D.A. Points’ win at the Pebble Beach AT&T National Pro-Am this year. Prior to going on his own, he climbed the ranks at the David Leadbetter Academy until he became the Director of Instruction in 1997.
Half-day schools start at $275, and there are also full-day and two-day programs. More information can be found here.
