Winter Golf Camp - Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy

It’s always sunny in Central Florida where we train year round at our beautiful and new state-of-the-art training facility here in Howey in the Hills, Fla.

Similar to GGGA’s Summer Golf Camp program, GGGA’s Winter Golf Camp program is modeled off our Full Time Junior Program and incorporates golf technical training with mental training, fitness training and on-course strategy for junior golfers, giving our students the opportunity to train when they might be all cooped up in the cold.

Students build confidence through a series of proven drills and strategies and utilize video analysis to discover areas for improvement during their stay at GGGA Winter Golf Camp.

All training sessions are carried out at our world-class facilities, and each athlete’s level of progress and performance are closely monitored by our team of certified coaches. Each student’s development is based on individual needs. More information about technical, mental and fitness training can be found below.

Technical training

The technical training element challenges students to reach new heights in their game.

Students train in small groups of 6-8 students and work through their individual development plans with their coach all the while competing against the other students in their group. Coaches and students stick to their plan with a systematic approach, making sure all points are addressed and changes are made when needed.

Students are initially videoed so that the GGGA team can assign individual drills for each student to work on their full swing, short game and putting. By utilizing Gary Gilchrist’s innovative motion drills and corresponding fitness elements, students build confidence while playing by instantly showing a difference; knowing they have the ability to work through a challenge is paramount to playing like a champion.
