Bishops Gate Golf Academy campers are housed in upscale, spacious, fully furnished condos that emit a “home away from home” feel. Campers room with either one or two students with a maximum of six students per home. In addition, each home has a living room, dining room, fully-appointed kitchen and laundry room, and, in most cases, an enclosed patio for relaxation and games. All units have wireless Internet access and satellite television. The condos are convenient to all golf facilities, dining hall, and recreational activities that are just steps away from home.
Supervision, Safety and Security
Campers receive guidance and supervision on a 24/7 basis by resident house parents who take on the responsibility of overseeing our campers’ daily lives. BGGA is inside a private, gated community. Only residents, staff, and members of the club have access to the community.
Boarding students eat all their meals in Champions Hall, the Clubhouse at BGGA. Overlooking the lake, Champions Hall is the perfect setting for our students to relax, socialize, and play a few games. Bishops Gate Golf Academy utilizes an in-house catering service lead by Executive Chef Bill Redding. Chef Redding is an accomplished Executive Chef with over 20 years of experience in restaurants all over the country. Chef Redding is a Certified Food Safety Manager, and he also holds a certification in Sports Nutrition and Performance.
Non-boarding students have the ability to rent luxurious town-homes within or near the gated community of Bishops Gate Golf and Lakeside Community. Although living with a relative, non-boarding students will still be able to eat lunch with their friends at BGGA and train each day.
The Bishops Gate Golf Academy campus is much more than just a place to sleep and train. It is a place to integrate sports, character development and a healthy social experience.
BGGA students have no shortage of activities right here on property. On-site amenities include a full, lit basketball court, lakeside swimming pool, and a game room complete with Ping-Pong, Pool Table, PlayStation 4, XBOX One, and satellite TV on a 60-inch HDTV.
BGGA students have easy access to world-class shopping and theme parks.

Located on beautiful Lake Harris in Florida’s Lake County, just 45 minutes from Orlando International Airport, the property boasts a first-class training facility with a 16-acre range and 11 golf holes. This unique training environment allows you to train in golf course conditions every day.

It can be played from multiple tee locations to multiple greens, making it possible to train for almost every shot imaginable. There is a full-time crew working to keep the quality of the greens in pristine condition, and they run as fast and smooth as any you will find in any tournament.
