The Hartpury College Golf Academy, based in Gloucester, England, have selected the Desert Springs Resort to host their fourth consecutive winter training camp.
The Hartpury College Golf Academy provides players with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and golfing skills by offering regular coaching and playing time. There are three full-time PGA Professionals at Hartpury College who provide the coaching and practice sessions, which take place around academic sessions, so that students are developing both their academic and golfing abilities.
Between Sunday 31st January – Friday 5th February, Desert Springs will be host to twenty five (25) students and three (3) professional staff from The Hartpury College Golf Academy for a five-day intensive training programme to develop their individual golfing skills in warm weather, utilising the excellent practice facilities at the Golf Academy and playing the Indiana Championship golf course.
Richard King, Golf Elite Programme Manager & PGA Instructor at the Hartpury College Golf Academy said:
“The warm weather training opportunity at Desert Springs coupled with the outstanding golf facilities, provides the players with the opportunity to practice and bond together in an environment that allows quality practice and golf performance and we are all very much looking forward to returning!”
During the training camp, players can enjoy opportunities to swim, play football and tennis and use the gymnasium, trim trail, jogging tracks, paddle tennis and beach volley ball courts. They also have access to the resort’s Private Reserve which incorporates a spa, private sauna and jacuzzi suite, personal fitness workout room, games room with bar, and a home cinema.
Accommodation for the players and officials is in some of the privately owned apartments normally reserved for holidays and short breaks at Desert Springs Resort.
The resort’s executive chef will be on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining in the resort’s award-winning El Torrente Restaurant.
