Phoenix, AZ – (June 2008) One of America’s leading golf schools, Bird Golf Academy, is pleased to announce it has aligned with Grand View Lodge to offer best-in-class golf instruction at Minnesota’s top golf resort.

“We are excited about our relationship with the Bird Golf Academy,” says Eric Peterson, director of golf at Minnesota’s Grand View Lodge. “Their one-on-one experience is like nothing that we have ever offered and we are very proud to be partnered with them.”

Located on beautiful Gull Lake in the heart of the Brainerd Resorts area, Grand View Lodge is home to the state’s best resorts and golf courses. Among its three championship courses, the Pines has been ranked the “Number One Resort Course in Minnesota” by Golf Digest and Deacon’s Lodge is currently rated “Top 100 in the U.S.” by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. Nationally recognized for its 27 championship holes and carefully set among soft rolling hills and lush Minnesota forest, the Pines offers 3 distinct 9-hole combinations.

Beyond the links, Minnesota Grand View Lodge offers superb fishing and boating on one of nine nearby lakes, a 1,500-foot natural sand beach, the Glacial Waters Spa where guests can unwind with a complete array of spa services and six restaurants, including the historic Sherwood Forest, a 1920s timber lodge serving fine steaks and chops.

Long-known to Midwestern residents as the region’s top Minnesota golf resort–a popular regional getaway for guests from Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis–Grand View Lodge is gaining popularity with guests from across the nation, especially those fleeing the summer heat and humidity. From June to September, Minnesota’s Grand View Lodge has an ideal summer climate with temperatures ranging from the high 70s to the 80s.

Students at Bird Golf Academy will enjoy a premier package, including accommodations in beautifully-appointed one-bedroom studios or suites, either on the lakefront or on the Pines golf course. Along with receiving personalized, one-on-one golf instruction at one of the nation’s top golf schools, guests will enjoy mental game instruction, unlimited practice and play at the host course, lunch each day and unlimited coaching follow-up after the completion of the school. Three, four and five-day packages with six to eight hours of instruction each day are available.

“Our hope is to develop Grand View Lodge as our mid-west flagship site,” says Jay Ewing, Bird Golf Academy’s founder and director of instruction. “Grand View is such a perfect summer location for our school for so many reasons. It has every amenity you would expect at a superb resort and the golf courses are simply stunning.

This Minnesota golf resort is not to be missed. For more information or to book an instruction session, please call Bird Golf Academy toll-free at 877-424-7346 (877 4-BIRDGO) or visit their website Minnesota Golf School at Grand View Lodge
