The Place to Practice

Membership Opportunities

The Practice Grounds members are part of a dynamic learning community of golfers and golf performance professionals – all dedicated to game improvement and thriving on the course. Our performance clubhouse is 8,000 square feet of space committed to improving from tee to green, body and mind, all seasons of the year.

The Place to Learn


Junior Select

Playing competitive golf is demanding. To perform in that environment, athletes benefit from being part of a community of competitors that are part of a purposeful yearlong training program. The Junior Select program is designed to successfully transition athletes through the phases (Skill Acquisition, Pre-Competition, Competition, Rest & Recovery) based on individual needs and competitive schedule. Our trained staff assists participants by: refining their technical skills, conditioning their body, focusing their mind for performance, developing successfully practice skills, and creating peer support for a team-like atmosphere.


SPARK Academy

The SPARK Academy is a year-round golf participation, training, and learning program for youth. Our PGA and LPGA coaches have designed SPARK Golf to provide juniors and parents a structured pathway for youth participation and education centered on golf. Building lifelong connections to the game and fellow participants is the ultimate goal of all SPARK Academy programs. Juniors will discover the "joy of golf" as they acquire knowledge, skills, and confidence through our innovative game-based activities.

Collegiate Choice

When student-athletes graduate to collegiate competition, there are both new opportunities and challenges for high performance and growth. The Collegiate Choice program creates a home base for collegiate golfers to refine their swings, to develop their mental and physical games for elite competition, and to have guidance in navigating non-collegiate tournament play.


Adult Performance Golf

The Practice Grounds adult sessions provide golfers the opportunity to register consistent knowledge and skill improvement throughout the year. Each session is led by PGA and LPGA professionals and scheduled to accommodate today's busy lifestyles.

Private Lessons

Private lessons are an opportunity to dive deep into specific aspects limiting on course performance and enjoyment. TPG staff are your resource to improve knowledge, skill, mental and physical components of your game.


The Practice Grounds is a truly unique golf performance facility and our talented team of coaches only enhances your experience.
