On Saturday, December 1st, the Outback Golf Academy will be hosting a free grand opening event at Western Skies Golf Club in Gilbert, Arizona.  The Academy’s vision is to enhance the coaching experience for all golfers in the Southeast Valley, especially juniors.  The family event will feature free golf clinics by academy staff, live entertainment from local band “Power Road”, and a live performance by world-renowned golf trick shot artist and Director of Coaching, Craig Hocknull.  There will be free equipment and coaching packages given away to some lucky attendees as well.

“While playing on tour I created a system to cultivate the natural talents of the athlete, while systematically addressing weaknesses, which is how we will approach teaching here at the Academy,” said Craig Hocknull, Director of Coaching at the Academy.  “At the Outback Golf Academy, we will provide “Tour quality coaching, Outback Style!”  We focus on the process and not the result, and we make the process so enjoyable that our students just can’t get enough of it.”

Through tour quality coaching, each student athlete will be equipped with the tools needed to advance to the next level in their golf game.  State-of-the-art launch monitors, like Flightscope and Trackman, are used, as well as online swing analysis using iPads and smart phones.

The free grand opening event will be held between 6pm – 8pm at Western Skies Golf Club, located at 1245 E. Warner Road Gilbert, Arizona 85296.  For more information, please call (602) 561-4653.

The Outback Golf Academy provides private individual coaching and private classes.  CJ Orton, a TPI certified instructor, and Brandon Sutton, an expert club fitter and repair technician, both accompany Hocknull at the Academy.  The Academy is located at Western Skies Golf Club in Gilbert, Arizona.  For more information about the Academy, please contact Craig Hocknull at (602) 561-4653 or via email at outbackgolfacademy@gmail.com.
