Our Teaching Philosophy

At the Golf Academy of Hawaii, we teach according to the following principles:

  • Each golfer has unique mental and physical skill sets that shape the style of their learning, play, and approach to the game.
  • Engaging students in a comfortable, yet detailed pre-lesson discussion establishes a better understanding of the learning style with which the student is most comfortable.
  • Removing tension and anxiety from learning, practicing, and playing the game prepares students to obtain the most success from their efforts.
  • The simple fundamentals of the golf swing and are directly connected to a students or group’s learning style. We develop trust and confidence through expressed positive expectations of the learners’ best characteristics.  From there, we focus on what is good in the existing form and/or function vice traditional problem solving.
  • We strive to learn from others to prevent settling into a permanent, unyielding teaching style.
  • Inspire students to enjoy the game of golf through their abilities to make sound course management decisions, uphold a degree of personal ethics regarding the rules of play, and a fine sense of personal courtesy to others.
