The Darren Clarke Golf School based at Greenmount Campus close to Antrim, Northern Ireland, has named the Desert Springs Resort and Golf Club as their overseas winter training base for the winter season of 2012/13.
The Darren Clarke Golf School 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.
Working in partnership with NRC, the School provides a two-year full-time programme, specifically designed to ensure aspiring 16 year olds and over, maximise their potential, both on and off the golf course. NRC management and tutors work alongside the Darren Clarke Golf School, PGA golf coaches and advisers in nutrition, personal strength and conditioning, to ensure that these young golfers gain maximum benefit from the programme.
Between 27th November – 4th December, 8 transition students and their coach will be the first to make their visit to the resort for a week long intensive training programme to develop their individual golfing skills in warm weather while experiencing a golf course which offers a challenge to players at all levels.
Between 8th – 12th January 2013, 28 full time students and 3 professional staff visit the resort for a four day training camp, with a further one week training camp scheduled for 7 transition students and their coach between 22nd – 29th January 2013.
During their time at the resort the players will utilise the excellent practice facilities at the Golf Academy and play the Indiana Championship golf course.
The students and officials will be accommodated in some of the privately owned apartments normally reserved for holidays and short breaks at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef will be on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining in the award-winning El Torrente Restaurant.
Andy Peoples head of Operations at the Darren Clarke Golf School said:
“The warm weather training opportunity at Desert Springs provides the students with the opportunity to practice and bond together in an environment that allows quality practice and golf performance.”
