2018-2019 Winter Golf Program

Welcome to the Spartan Golf Academy at Michigan State University. October 29th marks the 11th Anniversary of Forest Akers Golf Courses hosting the Winter Golf Program. The Winter Golf Program has helped hundreds of golfers over the years achieve greater results and a more enjoyable experience on the golf course. Each participant will be able to schedule one (1) lesson each week for the duration of the program. Each lesson will be tailored to the golfer’s desired outcome.

All lessons will be held in our All-Weather Practice Building, allowing all golfers to see their entire ball flight or work on putting and chipping.  As Mid-Michigan’s “Leaders in Golf Education”, we are building golfers’ for the future.
