8 Gradys Golf Mission

We are a golf academy that coaches golfers to lower their scores, by developing golf skills, practice habits and decision making ability, in order to provide a better golfing experience.

8 Gradys Golf Philosophy

We believe the result is inside the player and it's our job to pull it out of them through great questions, learning environments, and on course sessions. Golf should be fun and exciting to learn, with a clear roadmap to success for all players.


You will have a network of people to connect with about your progress and goals. Get lifestyle advice from other class members, push each other, or hang out after training.


Our coaches are trained, educated and certified to lead group classes. They know how to keep you safe while helping you reach your potential.


When you exercise alone, coming to the gym can feel like a chore. Group workouts are lively and exciting. You'll find yourself looking forward to exercising.
