Keith Lyford and Students at The Old Greenwood Golf Academy   


Golf Academy

Attend a 1, 2 or 3-day golf school in Lake Tahoe and experience California's finest golf learning center, Top 100 Instruction, fabulous golf school vacation packages and all the latest teaching techniques and technology.

When selecting a golf school to attend, it's certainly nice to have a fabulous vacation destination, like the Lake Tahoe region. But we realize that great instruction is always the key to a successful golf school experience, and that's what you'll find at The Golf Academy at Old Greenwood.

Keith Lyford has personally selected and trained each instructor, so you can be assured that they will meet his particularly high standards. And unlike other schools where the Director of Instruction is present in name only, Keith Lyford is on site daily and is actively involved in your personal improvement program. We know you want to play better golf, and at Old Greenwood, that's exactly what's going to happen.

A well-tailored shot-by-shot improvement plan starts your personal journey at The Golf Academy at Old Greenwood. Beginner golfers steer clear of forming bad habits. Intermediate golfers capture more fluid, powerful swings. And advanced golfers will shave enough strokes to reach the next level and become a more competitive tournament player.

So come join our class. If you're like most of our students, you'll have so much fun, you won't want to graduate!
