(Part I explores the Bird Golf Academy golf schools in Arizona and California.)


One of Bird Golf’s three golf schools in Arizona is surely calling your name.

In Phoenix at http://www.birdgolf.com/locations/arizona-golf-schools/ , Bird Golf Academy could not be more proud that it is the official golf school at the fantastic Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass. In addition to the stunning accommodations at the Wild Horse Pass Resort (including the acclaimed Kai Restaurant and Aji Spa and Salon), Bird Golf Academy students get to enjoy the incredible Whirlwind Golf Club, which was selected as one of the Top 25 New Golf Courses in the United States in 2004 and was home to the PGA Nationwide Tour Gila River Classic.

Consistent with its Phoenix counterpart, Bird Golf’s Tucson golf school, http://www.birdgolf.com/c-locations/tucson-golf-school/ is similarly exceptional. Housed at the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Golf & Tennis Resort, this golf school allows you to enjoy the Elements Spa, hiking and biking trails in the Oro Valley, and the amazing Epazote Kitchen & Cocktails restaurant. And the golf courses are, if possible, even more impressive: two superb Championship courses are The Conquistador and The Cañada. Here, you will be able to enjoy private practice facilities, amazing golf courses in a mountainous atmosphere, and the exceptional instruction from some of the best golf instructors in the country.

The final stop on the Arizona tour is Sedona at http://www.birdgolf.com/c-locations/sedona-arizona-golf-school/, held by some to be the most beautiful city in the United States! Students will be accommodated at the luxurious Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock, which is adjacent to the Sedona Golf Resort. Headlined by the Grille at Shadow Rock (where one can have dinner under the stars) and the Eforea Spa, this impressive resort will keep one refreshed and ready for exceptional golf instruction on its stunning golf course.


Wine tasting in Napa Valley on you or your significant other’s bucket list? Look no further than Bird Golf Academy’s Napa Golf School at Hiddenbrooke http://www.birdgolf.com/c-locations/napa-golf-school/ . The Arnold Palmer designed golf course is well known as the “premier golf course north of the Golden Gate Bridge.” Imagine it. Playing golf in the world-renowned wine country of northern California. The only thing that could make it better is combining it with the top of the line golf instruction from Bird Golf Academy professional instructors.

Looking for the ever-fantastic weather of southern California? Bird Golf has three exceptional golf schools to choose from for the perfect golf school vacation, including Palm Springs, San Diego, and Santa Barbara.

The Classic Club in Palm Springs http://www.birdgolf.com/c-locations/palm-springs-california-golf-school/ is surely calling your name. It truly is a world famous golf course and played host to the PGA Tour’s Bob Hope Chrysler Classic in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Arnold Palmer’s design genius is on full display at this magnificent golf course. After working with Bird Golf’s excellent golf instructors, students can stop at the critically acclaimed Bellatrix Restaurant at Classic Club and enjoy some of Executive Chef, Gerard Brunett’s, excellent fairs. Students are also hosted in the luxurious Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa.

Your stay in San Diego will be equally fantastic. After resting up at the La Casa Del Zorro, an elegant and historic luxury hotel (which has 28 pools and jacuzzis!), Bird Golf students will hone their game at Tom Fazio’s Rams Hill Golf Club http://www.birdgolf.com/c-locations/borrego-springs-at-rams-hill/ . This incredible course is nestled in the Santa Rosa Mountains, and will test the mettle of the best golfer, yet also has multiple tee boxes to make the course playable for any skill level.

Our final stop in California is the Alisal Guest Ranch and Resort in Santa Barbara wine country http://www.birdgolf.com/c-locations/santa-barbara-golf-school-at-alisal-guest-ranch/ . The resort encompasses an amazing 10,000 acres! Rich with history, students will be able to explore one of California’s favorites, all the while improving their game on two magnificent championship golf courses. These courses are beautifully situated and may allow students to share the course with all kinds of wildlife, including deer, foxes, and eagles. Figuring in a stop at this magnificent location would help you have a perfect golf school vacation.
