A b o u t  t h e G. G. A . . .


Gonzalo Golf Academy (G.G.A) was created with the aim to improve the game with specific programs tailored to suit any level, from beginners to low handicaps.

The foundation of the academy is to allow players to see the game easier and visually. Using the latest technologies of video analysis, the GGA guarantees immediate results.

GGA´s philosophy is based on making each lesson professional, personal and above all a fun experience. The values inculcated by the instructors of the GGA to their students are: determination, perseverance, and specially a good attitude.

Our methodology is based on the easy compression of each lesson. Each student/ player will receive an email at the end of the first class, showing the main areas of improvement and changes made by the teacher. Another detailed email will be sent out at the end of each period of 5 lessons, allowing a clear visualization of the evolution of each player.
