How to get started

The Golf Academy at Chelsea Piers offers instructional programming designed to accommodate every level of golfer. From the novice golfer who has never held a club before to the avid golfer who has been playing for years, all golfers find instruction to best fit their game.

For the Golf Beginner

The hardest part about golf can be getting started. That's why the Academy features a variety of beginner schools and programs to ease your entry into the game. We recommend Golf 101 as an initial introduction to the sport. This class provides students with a basic understanding of the game of golf, including etiquette, equipment, grip and stance, so students can learn with confidence. If you're looking for a more detailed introduction, be sure to ask about our Learn to Play Package.

For the Experienced Golfer

Improve your technique and build on already established skills by taking a private lesson or attending our popular Players School. During your lesson, you receive a video analysis of your swing that can be accessed digitally at any time, along with notes on what to practice. The Academy also offers an Intermediate School for those who have played the game before, but are not quite ready for the golf course. Be sure to ask about our specialty programs as well!

For Junior Golfers

The Golf Club offers a comprehensive Junior Golf program for all levels, from beginner to elite. Please visit the Junior Golf section of our website for more information.
