BEAVER CREEK, Colo. -- Golf enthusiasts of all ages and abilities can experience two- or three-day golf clinics at Red Sky Golf Club, located 15 minutes west of Beaver Creek, Colo. Instructor Chuck Cook operates Colorado's only year-round premier golf academy, which opened to the public earlier this month at Red Sky Golf Club. The facility has been integrated into the design of the new Greg Norman course and the Tom Fazio course.
"Now that the academy is open to the public, locals and out-of-town guests can enjoy specialized attention from one of the top golf teachers in the world," said Jeff Hanson, director of golf for Red Sky Golf Club.
Chuck Cook was named by Golf Digest as one of the "Top 10 Greatest Teachers" in 2002 and one of the top 50 teachers of the 20th century. Known as the "teacher's teacher," Cook has taught four U.S. Open champions and several U.S. and British Amateur Champions. In 1996, PGA of America named him "Teacher of the Year."
The Chuck Cook Golf Academy features customized classroom and practice area instruction, including a 350-yard, double-ended practice facility and a short game area with three specialized greens. The programs include play on Colorado's first Greg Norman course, scheduled to open June 30, 2003, and the Fazio course, which opened last summer and was named in the March 2003 issue of Golf Magazine as one of "The Top 10 Courses You Can Play."
This summer's series of two- and three-day clinics cover all phases of the game, including full swing, short game, on-course play and club fitting. State-of-the-art laser club fitting and measurement technology along with thorough individual and equipment evaluations are all used to improve one's golf game.
