The TOURAcademy TPC Scottsdale opened to the public in 2007. With its combination of an excellent teaching staff and unmatched location in the Sonoran Desert this facility has long been a popular learning destination to members of TPC Network clubs from around the country.
Contrasting the intensity of the Academy's training regiment, the surrounding desert offers students the opportunity to experience the best of what this unique locale has to offer, whether it is five-star dining in downtown Scottsdale or an evening spent relaxing at the Willow Stream Spa after a long day at golf school.
Your personal instruction at the TOURAcademy TPC Scottsdale is complemented by the latest teaching technologies including V1 video analysis.
V1 video analysis allows our instruction staff to diagnose your swing from multiple camera angles as well as compare and contrast your swing mechanics on a split screen with many of the best golfers in the world. Each instructional experience will be recorded with instructional voice-overs and either copied to a CD or sent to your own personal on-line account. These resources are great for long term progression and provide inspiration after you leave the academy.
