Minnesota Golf School

Minnesota Golf School

By Brian Weis

Those who are glued to the tv set for every Major and PGA tournament dreaming of becoming the next Jordan Spieth or Rory McIlroy should know that learning golf at the highest level is possible. How? Where? Well, in "The North Star State". With more than 400 golf courses, Minnesota is considered, hands down, one of the golfing paradises in the United States.

As we know, actually it is not (only) about playing golf on a course. More and more fans decide to improve their game by taking special classes to perfect their swing and strategy. Decades ago, golfers just took a few initial classes, and then they were simply off to their luck and experience on the course. Everything has changed, and many amateurs are trained as true professionals.

And Minnesota is no exception to this trend. At the incredible Grand View Lodge Resort and Spa, the Bird Golf Academy is located exceptionally. It is one of the best resorts in the world, to the point of being considered one of the best 10 in this region by Condé Nast Traveler. The 27-hole golf course and its extensive practice area are an irresistible magnet for golfers who come to this beautiful place right next to Gull Lake, in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes area. The historic Grand View Lodge on Gull Lake has provided memorable vacation experiences since 1916.

Like other locations throughout the United States, the Bird Golf Academy offers attractive packages to take golf lessons, including accommodation, practice in unique places, and unlimited access to the course. In addition, its prestigious golf teachers evaluate the swing and game strategy with one of the best learning experiences available on the market. These packages are organized in segments of 18, 24, or 30 hours of instruction and are intended for those seeking individual or group golf lessons.

One of Bird Golf Academy's best-kept secrets is one for everyone to see, enjoy and rejoice. It is about the enormous experience and passion of their golf teachers. Starting with the "Ultimate Golf Learning Experience", the academy's instructors work uniquely through observation, teaching, and research. To give you an idea, Bird Golf instructors have more than 350 years of combined teaching experience. We are talking about instructors with experience on the PGA Tour, the LPGA, and multiple winners, even from major tournaments.

The concept is a well-conceived, well-executed, and almost perfect one. Personalized lessons with special attention from the teacher. Even off the golf course. During moments of rest and lunch, conversations with golf instructors are crucial to deepening the concepts learned on the driving range or the golf course. It is an excellent opportunity to hear the experience of those who competed at the highest levels.

Bird Golf's teaching system is focused on each player in a particular and personalized way. The reason is more than obvious: golfers are not all the same. Therefore, the instructors focus on the individual strengths and weaknesses of the players, creating continuous improvement.
