Welcome Bishops Gate Golf Academy to Global junior Golf


Howey in the Hills, Florida (Sept, 2016)
. Bishops Gate Golf Academy, recently established in 2014 with twenty-five students, has grown rapidly with seventy-seven students enrolled for the fall semester of 2016. Students have been attracted to Bishops Gate Golf Academy from all over the world, not only by its outstanding coaching staff, but also because it operates from one of the very best residential golf facilities designed specifically for junior golfers.

Tom Jackson, the founder of Core Academy and a former touring pro, golf coach and golf facility manager, begun serving as CEO of Bishops Gate Golf Academy earlier this year. Tom Jackson joined us and managed the transition of many Core Golf Academy students to BGGA over that period. He has decided to take a different direction and apply his expertise and deep knowledge of golf to focus on his other company, Professional Golf Management Institute ("PGMI”), where he will be educating and training young golf professionals.

Over $20m has been invested in the Bishops Gate facilities, located in a secure gated residential community that serves as the campus for its students. Student athletes can easily walk from their town home residences to the large 16-acre golf range or play 11 specially designed practice holes, which also double as part of a challenging 18 hole golf layout. Students walk or ride golf carts to the central catering hall, to a fitness facility, the swimming pool, basketball court, or tennis courts. This ready access enables them to enjoy life on a safe and self-contained campus.

The unrivalled golf training facilities, combined with the year-round Florida climate, have enabled Bishops Gate Golf Academy to assemble an outstanding group of coaches led by Kevin Smeltz, a top one hundred coach and Jonathan Yarwood, a master golf coach who guided Michael Campbell to US Open success. The Bishops Gate Golf Academy coaching philosophy assures an individualized program for each student, within the academy environment, focusing on a clear development plan designed for each student to achieve their particular goals and aspirations.

Andrew Summers is excited to be back at the helm at Bishops Gate Golf Academy where he will continue to provide an excellent experience for all academy students.
