If you’re in the market for a full weekend of game-sharpening, Turnberry Isle Miami has an exclusive experience celebrating August's National Golf Month.
Led by PGA Teacher of the Year and Gary Knapp, weekend golf schools are available every Saturday and Sunday through September 30.
"Each clinic begins with an evaluation of each player's drive, short game, sand play, putting and swing sequence, which enables me to create a customized weekend golf program," Knapp said. "Players will also be videotaped during instruction and receive an opportunity to review their form and fine tune specific game techniques."
Priced at $880 for two guests, the Golf Month promotion includes eight hours of instruction over two days and two rounds of golf on the resort's two 18-hole courses, the Miller Course and the Soffer Course. Don’t be intimidated by that sticker price—if you haven’t taken lessons before, that’s a great rate for an acclaimed PGA teacher. And as mentioned, there’s two rounds of golf on top of that.
Accommodations at Turnberry Isle’s fantastic resort are available with nightly rates starting at $119. For more information or to book, call 305-933-6929 or visit their website.
