Bird Golf Academy picks Paiute Golf Resort for its Vegas location

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort (The Paiute), an international golf destination composed of three Pete Dye original courses, and The Bird Golf Academy, a nationally recognized golf academy with corporate offices in Phoenix, Arizona, today announced that their golf school, known as “the ultimate golfing experience®,” will bring its private, individual instructional strategies exclusively to this Las Vegas international golf destination. In addition to Nevada, The Bird Golf Academy offers their customized clinics in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee.

Director of Instruction for The Bird Golf Academy, Jay A. Ewing, details why The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort was chosen as the exclusive location for Las Vegas stating, “Bird Golf is thrilled to announce its new partnership with The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. We have been looking for the perfect site for our students in Las Vegas, and we feel that The Paiute fits that description in each requirement we desired. With three spectacular Pete Dye signature courses, superb practice facilities, and their attention to the player’s experience including their customer service, Bird Golf feels that The Paiute is the ideal location for our golf school students.”

With other golf schools a student might be in ratios of 4 or more to each instructor. The Bird Golf Schools provide private, individual instruction for 60 minutes of each hour in either a 1 student to 1 instructor or a 2 student to 1 instructor ratio. The six or eight hour per day sessions allow students to take advantage of one-on-one concentrated instruction. Bird Golf teachers are world-class, widely-recognized golfing professionals who have a combined 400 years of teaching experience, hold Tour titles and are members of various Halls of Fame.

General Manager of The Paiute, Pat O’Hara, emphasizes the depth of instruction Bird Golf provides noting, “seven members of their staff are in one or more Halls of Fame. The Bird Golf instructors include a US Open winner and two-time LPGA Championship winner, the founding editor of Golf For Women magazine, PGA Master professionals the 1989 LPGA Teacher of the Year, and several multiple LPGA Tour winners.”

Head Golf Pro at The Paiute, Greg Wickensimer, states “in my experience no one student or person has the same goals or needs when it comes to their golf swing. To learn this difficult game, players would benefit from personal one-on-one time with some of the best instructors in the world. The Bird Golf Academy allows students that rare experience, whether their focus is the short game, putting, full swing, or course management, through individual lessons that cater to a player’s personal game. Improving your golf swing and lowering your handicap is a near guarantee.”

When students create their individual clinic through the academy at The Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, they will enjoy accommodations following a day’s instruction at The JW Marriot in Summerlin, which features deluxe rooms with whirlpool bathtubs, separate showers and luxury beds. The resort also has a Spa, seven restaurants on property, two 11,000 square foot swimming pools, shops and a casino.
