INSTITUTE OF GOLF’s FLAGSHIP PROGRAMME
The IOG Academy was established in 2008 when leading New Zealand instructors Craig Dixon and Guy Wilson wanted to create an opportunity for young golfers to evolve their game and live their golfing dreams. A unique aspect of our programme is that players are split into performance squads based on performance and not age. Our revolutionary teaching systems are implemented throughout the Academy in an educational, motivating and fun environment for all players. Enrolment into our Academy gives the opportunity to train with and learn from New Zealand’s No#1 golf improvement company.
