The Academy at Del Mar Golf Center

The Academy at Del Mar Golf Center is our ongoing program in which your young athlete will develop their athletic and golf abilities. 

Weekly classes include 45 minutes of golf training and 45 minutes of athletic development.  Small class sizes (6-1 ratio or less) ensure your young athlete receives individual attention from our golf and athletic training staff. 
Similar to Martial Arts, we incorporate a grading system in which your young athlete must pass a proficiency test every few months to move to the next level.  Golf abilities are indicated by hat color and fitness abilities are indicated by wrist band color.
The Academy is open to all young athletes interested in developing their golf and fitness abilities.
