LEARN THE TECHNIQUES, SKILLS AND MENTAL SHORT GAME STRATEGIES USED BY TODAY’S BEST TOUR PLAYERS - INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED BY SHORT GAME ARTISTS GOLF ACADEMY

Join the Short Game Artists Golf Academy and Joe Dolby, Class A PGA Professional and NCAA Division 2 Head Coach, this summer at Shoreline Golf Links! This program offers exceptional instruction from our highly skilled team of teaching professionals. Improve your game and have fun with our experienced teaching professionals this summer!

More than 60% of all shots in golf are near or on the green. Building a strong short game foundation is essential to playing better, lowering scores, becoming competitive, or simply having a lot more fun when playing golf. This is especially true for junior players. Taught by the Bay Area’s leading short game instructors, the Short Game School is a five-hour, single-day school covering key elements of the short game for players 10 through 18 years old.

School is open to any and all entrants (limited only by number and age, grade level, and/or gender).

Highlights Include
  • Small group instruction from experienced teaching professionals
  • 70-page detailed Coursebook
  • Short game drills and practice strategies for maximizing the results from practice time
  • Mental game development and learning how to play under pressure, and taking what you can do on the practice green to playing on the course with everyone watching
  • Safe, fun and healthy learning environment

Camp Details

Hitting a short game shot successfully once on a practice green is very different than having the confidence and skill to hit that shot consistently while playing on the course, especially under pressure. With busy lives players have to make the most of the practice time they have available. The Short Game Artists Golf Academy approach integrates the tour-proven teaching methods combined with the latest coaching and mental game development. Our students learn not only how to hit a shot, but how to play consistently, under pressure and creatively. Perhaps most important, from beginner to advanced players, we pass onto our students the passion and enjoyment of the short game.

“My short game has improved a lot! Despite tough conditions I finished the last 7 holes four under. I finished 7th out of 60 kids.” - Short Game Golf Schools player
