Instruction Programs

The Grande Dunes Golf Performance Center offers instruction programs to fit the needs of its students.

Beginners and juniors are not taught the same way as single-digit handicappers, so lessons are created based on experience and goals.

Flexible class instruction programs for beginners walk golfers through the basics from etiquette, the rules, equipment, and the mechanics of a proper swing. Offering a pleasant, nurturing and rewarding experience at this early stage will help keep beginners in the game.

Looking to take your golf swing to the next level? Our golf instructors utilize the latest state-of-the-art technology including high-speed cameras, V1 swing analysis software, Flightscope® 3D Doppler Tracking Golf Radar, and FocusBand©, a mind sensing headset that measures subconscious thoughts before and during your golf shot. FocusBand© helps us to understand how you are feeling under pressure or how relaxed you were feeling at the point of impact.

“The goal is to have a preshot routine in which you have a detailed visualization of what you want to do and then step in and do it almost subconsciously, without any mechanical instructions,” said Dale Ketola, Director of Instruction and club fitting at Founders Golf Performance Center. “It’s pretty cool and really works. I don’t know of anyone else in the Carolinas who has one.”

The Golf Performance Center is one of the only facilities in Myrtle Beach where you can use this technology while learning outdoors on the driving range, seeing your shots as if you were on the golf course!
