Vermont Golf School - What's After a Trip to Golf School?
By Brian Weis
You walk off the course and you've had enough. Your game isn't good, and hasn't been for a while. You want more out of your swing and have decided it's finally time to do something about it.
You settle on Vermont Golf School because you know it'll be an opportunity to escape the madness of your home course, find a professional who can objectively evaluate you, and it's an experience you haven't taken on before.
The focus of this type of place is to go all-in on golf. There's a clear focus on getting to know your game and how it can be improved. You focus on your swing, your mental state, and how to be consistent.
During your stay, you'll have access to experienced instructors in the true sense of the word. You're close to them and can ask any questions, or even design your own lessons. It's a freer approach than you'll find other places and lets you control how things go.
Setting Up for Later
1 on 1 instruction is one component of a complete coaching experience. In a way, it's almost like the in-person lesson is an evaluation for how an instructor sends you off later on. During your time on the course, a professional gets to know you, where you struggle, and how you learn.
After, they use this information to plan the next lesson or design a regimen that fits your best path forward. A previous student embodied this idea perfectly, saying "Debbie and I definitely had an exceptional learning experience and Scott rebuilt our swings from scratch with obvious improvement. We learned a tremendous amount in a short time and it was work. Now the hard work of finding time to practice and put it all together starts. Scott worked us through great drills that we will take away with us and also strategies for managing our game on the course."
Using these custom plans is what needed to happen to keep pushing forward.
The Gift that Keeps Giving
You're bound to have some of those post-vacation blues after you leave Vermont Golf School. But, there's some joy to be had knowing you're coming out a better golfer with plenty of things to work on while you maintain that momentum.
When you work with professionals at these places, you are given analysis of your swing and lessons, as well as drills to work on. These two pieces are what you need to focus on to make the most of your trip.
Instruction at the Vermont Golf School is good and well, but you're limited to a set number of hours. Now you might be thinking what Gary though of his trip, you know that "On a scale of 1-10, the 3 days were a 12.", but there's more to be had.
Golf is about self-improvement and making strides even when away from the course. By fully digesting and working on the assignments given to you by your instructors, you sustain the improvements made in person.
If you expect to drop a few points from your handicap without incorporating their drills and tips into your standard routine, you're mistaken. You'll leave with exercises suited to your game and designed specifically for you. Use them. The instructors gave you the tools to make a big jump, and that's the most any professional can.
