Indian Wells, CA – The Indian Wells Golf Resort, the highly acclaimed 36-hole resort golf destination in Indian Wells, California, and The Bird Golf Academy, universally recognized by their Trademark “The Ultimate Golf Learning Experience” ® today announced that they will be partnered to host Bird Golf schools. The Indian Wells Golf Resort will become the exclusive Palm Springs area site for the Bird Golf Academy, who also have locations in Arizona, Nevada, Florida, Georgia, Colorado, South Carolina, Tennessee and New Jersey.

Director of Instruction for The Bird Golf Academy, Jay A Ewing, elaborates why the Indian Wells Golf Resort was chosen as the latest in their collection of outstanding partner facilities: “Bird Golf is ecstatic with our new partnership with Indian Wells. The newly re-designed golf courses are two of the finest golf courses not only in the desert but in all of Southern California. The quality of service and attention to detail that the resort and their staff offer their guest is extraordinary and matches Bird Golf’s, in every way. IGWR is the perfect destination for our Palm Springs Golf Schools.”

Now in their thirteenth year of operation, the Bird Golf Academy is unique in the teaching arena. Bird Golf offers one or two student to one instructor golf schools. Each golf school is customized for each student individually. All of the golf professionals that teach for Bird Golf have been PGA or LPGA professionals for a minimum of 20 years. They include an LPGA National Teacher of the Year, PGA Master professionals and multiple award winning professionals, a US Open Champion and members of various Halls of Fame. It is the format and quality of golf instruction that separates Bird Golf from any other golf school in the world.

General Manager of Indian Wells Golf Resort, Rich Carter echoes those superlatives, “We are very excited to bring the professionals of Bird Academy to the Indian Wells Golf Resort. I feel their personalized and high level of service will complement our experience and add another great dimension to the amenities the Indian Wells Golf Resort offers.”

The recipient of several awards and accolades, Indian Wells Golf Resort is the only facility in California to have both its courses included as Top 20 by both GolfWeek and Golf Magazine for 2010 and is acclaimed by many as the finest golf facility in the desert.

The Celebrity course, re-designed by Clive Clark in 2005 masterfully incorporates incredible water features and equally stunning views into his brilliant creation. The Celebrity was also host to the 25th Anniversary LG Skins Game in 2007 and again in 2008. The Players course, which underwent a complete demolish and redesign by John Fought, re-opened in 2007, is framed with the San Jacinto Mountains in the background and is a magnificent contrast in design to the Celebrity course.

Bird Golf Academy students stay at the on-site, luxury 4-Diamond Hyatt Grand Champions Resort and Spa. Golf school packages include Deluxe room with golf course views, private balcony, a separate living room and work area, high-speed Internet access, deluxe marble bath with separate tub and shower and superior thread count bedding. The on-site resort amenities include several restaurants, 7 swimming pools and the highly acclaimed Agua Serena Spa.
