Welcome Bishops Gate Golf Academy to Global junior Golf
SUMMERS BACK AT THE HELM AT BISHOPS GATE GOLF ACADEMY
Howey in the Hills, Florida
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.
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.
$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.
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.
