Founder George Bryan III and his team are dedicated to growing the game of golf while at the same time making golf enjoyable and fun to learn. One of their top priorities is encouraging family members to learn, practice and play golf together.

Grow Golf Now Programs Offered at the George Bryan Golf Academy
Family Fun Rounds
This program is designed to help ALL members of the family enjoy learning and playing golf together. Growing and improving in the game of golf can require a lot of time and a lot of money. And this program is designed to be both time friendly and budget friendly for the entire family.
Family Fun Rounds are designed to include ALL members of the family as either players, caddies, course guides, or fans. Each session takes place on the Challenge Course at the George Bryan Golf Academy and is designed to last 30-45 minutes. This provides excellent opportunities for golfers of all ages to have FUN while sharpening their skills on the course.
The Winter program is scheduled for 2-4 PM on Saturday & Sunday afternoons from Dec 7th - Mar 29th. Membership to the Family Fun Rounds program includes a weekly playing lesson on the Challenge Course and weekly video tutorials.
At Grow Golf Now, our focus on instruction is IMPACT - learning how to make better contact with the golf ball for optimal results. We help children and families learn how to train their bodies and their minds to become stronger, more flexible, and to move with better mobility. These things lead to reduced tension, improved agility and ultimately increased clubhead speed... hitting farther and straighter!
From a physical fitness perspective, our focus is on improving balance, lower body stability, hip and shoulder mobility, as well as hand and wrist flexibility which all work together to culminate into the correct position at impact. To help us accomplish the ultimate impact position, we implement multiple Swing Balance tools from Tsunami Bar Sports. We also lead group clinics with a focus on golf fitness and exercise that is beneficial to golfers of all ages.
To address the mental & skill developmental side of the game, our Learn & Play Clinics provide opportunities to both learn new skills and then directly apply them on the course. These programs are designed for entire families, golfers and non-golfers alike, to participate, learn, and play TOGETHER.
The Winter Youth Golf Tour takes place on Sunday afternoons and runs from early December to late February.
