Reaching out from
the golf course.

Overview.

Golf is a game of honor and integrity. The are no referees or umpires on the golf course. If a golfer breaks a rule, they are expected to penalize themselves.

When a child learns to play golf correctly they, almost without realizing, learn much more than how to hit a golf ball. They develop skills that they can use throughout their lives.

The Sixtyone Academy is a golf introduction, development, and integration program designed to eliminate misconceptions about golf, and remove barriers to playing the game.

Sixtyone reaches out from the golf course and connects young people with golf. The traditions and culture of the game do the rest.

Our Academy
