Indian Wells to host Golf Made Simple

Indian Wells, Calif. (October 4, 2017) – Indian Wells Golf Resort has partnered with Golf Made Simple, a destination golf school that aims to improve its students’ golf swings, to be the official golf school of the award-winning resort. Three-day Golf Made Simple classes begin at Indian Wells Golf Resort November 3rd through 5th and will continue every Monday through Wednesday and Friday through Sunday through May 16th.

Golf Made Simple specializes in three-day golf schools and operates 14 locations across the United States and in Europe. Golf Made Simple has been lauded as one of the best golf schools in America by Men’s Journal Magazine and has been shown to improve the game of 92% of its students by 6 to 11 strokes. Founded in 1999 by PGA professional Marc Solomon, Golf Made Simple achieves its excellent record by working with each pupil on their personalized swing. Each class has no more than four golfers and all Golf Made Simple instructors have passed the PGA of America's Playing Ability Test (PAT) and are experienced professionals in the PGA's Professional Golf Management Program or graduated from The Golf Academy of America.

“We’re excited to partner with Golf Made Simple at Indian Wells Golf Resort,” said Steve Rosen, general manager, Indian Wells Golf Resort. “In a typical golf school, golfers are overloaded with complicated golf swing information. Golf Made Simple instructors simplify the process by incorporating easy to understand drills so that golfers can 'feel' their swing and see results quickly.”

The Golf Made Simple program begins before a golfer arrives at Indian Wells Golf Resort. At sign-up, the golfer fills out a Personalized Registration Evaluation so the instructor knows details and goals of the golfer before they set foot on the practice range. A typical Golf Made Simple class day includes three hours on the practice range, lunch in the clubhouse, another hour on the practice range, followed by six holes of on-course instruction. The class day ends with a 30 minute “chalk talk” review of the day. 

“I’m thrilled to bring the Golf Made Simple program to the Southern California desert at Indian Wells Golf Resort,” said Marc Solomon. “Indian Wells Golf Resort practice facilities are outstanding and the resort’s two courses are challenging and breathtaking, making it an ideal environment for Golf Made Simple's golf schools.”

Indian Wells Golf Resort is professionally managed by Troon Golf, a division of Troon, the leader in golf course management, development, and marketing. Golf Made Simple operates golf schools at six Troon Golf-managed properties across the United States.
