Golf: Programs and facilitie

The golf training led by the JB golf Academy will mostly take place in Le Golf du Victoria, but will also occasionally be spread out to regional partnering golf courses (Old Course, Riviera, St Donat, Barbossi, etc)

This program will tackle all the essential parts of training in order to unleash a golfer's true potential; mental training, nutrition, life hygiene, mechanical details of a golf swing, physical training, strategies and objectives, statistics and the "life plan".

Each one of these categories will be dug into through their sub-categories following a demanding and complete program that will be checked and kept up to date on a daily basis as well as in the long run (more information will be given at our meeting).

Particular emphasis will be placed on personal development where each student will participate in a total of 70 hours minimum of theoretical guidance where he will learn how to put his newly learnt skills to practice in his daily life!

Parents, students, and coaches will all have access to a free application called Coach Now where they will be able to communicate with one another as well as keep an eye for progress and areas of improvement.

In total, a student will have a total of 480 hours of golf practice, excluding the week-end competitions.

The academy sets up ambitious golf goals sequenced by semesters to allow students to progress with confidence and open doors to U.S universities with a potential scholarship.

The implemented competition program means that the students will participate in around 10 golf competitions a year (depending on their level) with the coach's obligatory presence if at least 4 players are participating

After each golf session, 1 hour sports lessons specific to the practice of golf assigned (yoga, athletics, endurance, mobility, agility, balance, strength, speed, explosiveness, weightlifting, etc.)

The practice of sport holds a major place in the performance of the golfer, and the numerous trainings with American institutes of our coaches will bring the best out of every individual.

Enrollment requirements

There is no particular level requirement since our mission is to guide the player as far as he can go, towards his goals;

However, students need to show motivation and determination to undertake this unique initiation experience.

In addition, for the French who wish to integrate the international curriculum, a certain level of English is required depending on the class..

Furthermore, to integrate an American faculty, the student's level of English must be good enough in order to be able to follow the courses.

As such, a non-eliminatory knowledge test is taken to show the areas for improvement for each student in order to adapt the program in their favour

There are many golf tournaments, divided by levels: federational, national, regional, departmental, local, etc.

A precise listing will be established at the beginning of the year in order to pre-program tournaments for students.

Accurate statistical monitoring will be applied throughout the year in order to follow both the progress and the preferred game strategies of each player.

The academy takes care of all the registrations and reservations for hotels during the tournaments so no action is required from the parents. Therefore a lump sum advance of 1000 € will be asked at the beginning of the year to facilitate the registration process.

A strict statement will be operated by our back office and any remaining balance will be refunded.
