Two Darren Clarke Golf School PGA Instructors accompanied twenty four students aged between 15 – 21 years for 4-days of warm weather winter training at the Desert Springs Resort between 27th & 31st January.
The Darren Clarke Golf School, based at Greenmount Campus close to Antrim, Northern Ireland, is a centre of excellence in the development of young golfers, offering state of the art facilities, a unique golf training programme, combined with a robust education through the BTEC Extended National Diploma in Sport, which is delivered by Northern Regional College at the School.
Nineteen-year-old student Stephen Young remarked;
“The Indiana course was an unbelievable test of golf, it is the best course I have ever played in my life. The staff were sensational and this training camp was an unforgettable experience!”
“Fantastic golf facilities, very friendly staff and excellent food, it was a fabulous experience.”
“The Indiana course was in immaculate condition and the practice facilities were out of this world. This has to be the best course I have ever played.
The accommodation and food were fantastic and the staff were wonderful, friendly and very polite.
In my opinion make Desert Springs your next golfing holiday destination without a doubt!”
Those are the verdicts of 16-year-old Harry McGeary and 21-year-old Alfie Neenan, two full time students from the Darren Clarke Golf School.
The training camp utilized the excellent practice facilities at the Desert Springs Golf Academy where the PGA Instructors were able provide one-to-one tuition and take advantage of the use of the Desert Springs short game academy prior to the students embarking on their rounds on The Indiana course.

The students and officials were accommodated in some of the privately owned apartments normally reserved for holidays and short breaks at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef was on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining each evening in the ‘El Torrente’ Restaurant.
Andy Peoples: Head of Operations & PGA Instructor at the Darren Clarke Golf School remarked:
“This is now our fifth return visit to Desert Springs Resort to complete our annual winter training camp.
Desert Springs is a fantastic resort, which we always look forward to returning to. The short game and practice facilities at the Golf Academy are superior, along with a golf course, which is different by its nature and challenging for everyone.
Many thanks to all of the staff, it has been a pleasure to be back once again at Desert Springs Resort.”
