Grant Veenstra Golf Academy
At the GVGA we strongly believe in the player having the ability to understand their swing, know their basics and in the end be able to essentially coach themselves.
In 2016 the GVG Academy was derived from a single man’s sheer determination to create a golf academy experience that would not only stand out from the crowd but would empower its golfing students to take on the world, confident in their technique, mental fortitude and ability to cope under pressure.
Like any great dream the opening of the GVG Academy came at a price, tearing Grant away from playing as a professional as he embarked on a journey that would quickly become his life’s passion and a living legacy – coaching the game of golf.
The GVG Academy is the product of that dream and testament to the culture of continuous learning, improvement and the challenge to strive for the best that infuses the coaching team.
The result? – an academy that is challenging local and international standards of golf coaching and demanding higher standards from the industry at large.
One of the key elements that differentiates the GVG Academy apart is the empowerment of players to understand their own swing, to own the training to such a degree that the player can identify why a shot wasn’t perfect and the coach can step back and become a mentor.
Teaching golf student’s independence is a key factor to their success. The coach can only advise how a player should play a shot.
