In 1983, when the doors to the very first Leadbetter Golf Academy opened, the golf world’s view of instruction changed forever. David’s swing philosophies and teaching methods revolutionized the way people thought about instruction itself. David continues to push the boundaries of golf instruction with the A Swing, the most significant change to golf instruction in years.

Today, with over 30 academies across the globe, The Leadbetter Golf Academy and its network of elite instructors continue David’s tradition of innovation and excellence by bringing premier golf instruction to players of all ages and abilities.

The Leadbetter Golf Academies offer a holistic approach to golf instruction that incorporate swing analysis, course management, mental preparation and physical conditioning. Our facilities provide the ideal setting for golfers to train and hone their abilities.

The facilities at The Leadbetter Golf Academies include putting labs, golf simulators, force plate analysis, indoor hitting bays, club fitting, performance training center and numerous outdoor teaching facilities and practice areas.

Here's your chance to join the growing network of Leadbetter Golf Academies across the world, and take your coaching experience to the next level!
