1. California Teaching Summit
Date: January 10th and 11th, 2018
Time: 8am–5pm each day (with a 1-hour lunch break)
Venue: Day 1 (Jan. 10th) will cover full swing with Dana Dahlquist at Desert Willow (Palm Desert) / Day 2 (Jan. 11th) will cover putting with Dr. Craig Farnswoth at The Palms GC (La Quinta).
Cost: $500 CAD (limited to 8 participants)
The PGA of Alberta’s Education Committee would like to invite you to its inaugural Winter “Teaching Summit” hosted in the Palm Springs area. This 2-day educational event will give a select group of PGA of Alberta members (8 participants max) to observe interactive lessons with two of the most sought-after instructors in North America – Dana Dahlquist and Dr. Craig Farnsworth. During the 8 hours of instruction each day, participants will take a 60-minute lesson to work on their own game as well as develop their coaching skills by observing the other participants take their lessons; always with the ability ask questions in real time to both student and teacher. The combined cost of taking a single lesson with each instructor would normally cost in excess of $800 CAD but PGA of Alberta members will have access to 16 hours of instruction at a fraction of that cost. Full details of the PGA of Alberta “California Teaching Summit” and biographies of the both instructors can be found below.
*Due to popular demand, the California Teaching summit is at full capacity with 8 participants registered. A waitlist will be created for anyone else interested in attending. If an additional 8 Members register, we will open up the summit to 16 spots total. Please note, additional spots are subject to course and instructor availability for January 10 & 11. If the instructors and/or venue are not able to accommodate, a reduced rate may be offered to everyone on the waitlist as they will not receive a 60-minute, one-on-one lesson with the instructors. Click ‘Register Now’ above to be put on the waitlist.
**1 spot remains on the waitlist as of Nov. 21, 2017
