It is the longest running golf school in the Western United States with the most consistent staff with over 100 total years of experience teaching both adult and junior golfers!

The Aviara Golf Academy opened in 1991 at the Arnold Palmer designed Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, CA, 30 minutes north of downtown San Diego. The experience, dedication and longevity of his talented staff of 5 full time Master Instructors is unparalled in the golf industry.

Master Instructors Ken Green joined in 1994, Bruce Nakamura in 1995, Bob Knee in 1995 and Grant Halverson in 1999. Working together through the years they’ve developed a curriculum that gives the golfer of any skill level the best chance to improve their game.

Hi Ken,
I just wanted to send a quick email to let you know that I thought the three day class with you was fantastic!

I played in a tournament this last Friday and shot 79 (to win)! I know I have a lot to work on, but your imput really helped as I navigated the course for the win. If you ever want a TRUE testimonial regrading your value as a teacher, I would be happy to write something from the heart.

I have referred several people to the Aviara Golf Academy (and you in particular). After shooting a low (for me) of 79 there are several people strongly considering signing up.
There is nothing better than success to attract interested parties!

Thank you again for your insights! I promise you I will work hard and am excited by the prospect of a lower handicap!

Cheers!
Sandy
