 "At 60 years young and recently moving to The Villages, and having never
playing golf in my life, I took up the game and started taking lessons from Mark
Panigoni. After 7 lessons with Mark, I shot a 41 on Sunday including my first
birdie at Sandhill playing from the gold. This was the 15th game that I had
played in my life. Two days later I played my 17th game at Saddlebrook
and scored a 35 with 3 pars and 4 bogies playing from the gold. This was now my
best game. These lessons really work. "    ----Bill Hayden

"As a parent of a competitive junior golfer, I was looking for consistent coaching that was affordable. Already a competitive golfer at age 11, Elle needed a coach that was going to help her step up her game to meet the ever increasing course yardage demands and prepare for the 36-54 hole tournaments on her schedule.

Elle is now wrapping up her 2nd successful summer of weekly lessons, on-course instruction, and play dates with Mark. Elle competes in tournaments at the state, regional, and world levels. Fresh off her 2nd trip to the USKids World Championship in Pinehurst, NC, she knows the value of course practice and private lessons with Mark."

     The Panigoni Golf Academy will provide instruction on all aspects of the game from short game to full swing to on-course management. Etiquette and rules are valued during all instruction.  The Academy was created to promote the game of golf and see students of all ages and ability levels improve to the highest level.

    Preparation for competition at the Middle School and High School levels requires more than just swing tips.  It is necessary to spend time on the golf course to learn all aspects of the game including the mental and emotional maturity to be able to compete for 9 or 18 holes of golf.

    Often one-hour lessons include time on the golf course working on these types of situations. 

    After private lessons you can get a lesson overview video emailed to you that includes videos of the student's swing and instructor commentary.    Click here to see a sample of this technology
