California Teaching Summit PD Series 2018

The PGA of Alberta’s Education Committee is proud to present the 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 (16 participant’s 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 to 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.
