Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I be screened?
There is not only one way to swing a golf club there are an infinite number of ways to swing the club; however, there is only one efficient way for each individual to swing the club and that is based on what they can physically do. After performing the Physical Screen our instructors will have a better idea of which swing style best suits you.
What is NorCal Golf Academy?
NorCal Golf Academy is a state of the art Indoor Golf Learning Center. NCGA utilizes Trackman and Advanced Motion Measurement 3D Technology along with Video analysis to analyze not only what your body is doing, but also what the clubhead is doing through the impact interval.
What services does NorCal Golf Academy offer?
Golf Lessons, 3D Biomechanical Analysis and Golf Body Prep Classes are the staple of NorCal Golf Academy. We address all aspects of your golf game from Putting Instruction utilizing the SAM PuttLab, which measures 28 parameters of your putting stroke to tell you what needs improvement, it then guides you through the “perfect practice” and gives you feedback on your performance to practice and instruction in our indoor Sand Bunker.
Is NorCal Golf Academy affiliated with any Golf Courses?
No, NorCal Golf Academy is a standalone Indoor Golf Learning Center based in Walnut Creek, CA. We offer opportunities to Play with the Pros at a nearby course.
Why should I choose NorCal Golf Academy instead of traditional golf instruction on the driving range?
In order to learn and make positive changes to a movement pattern such as the Golf Swing, people need feedback. At the driving range the Golf Professional is using his or her eyes to see what is going on in your swing. The human eye sees images at 15 frames per second. At NorCal Golf Academy we utilize electro magnetic sensors that can measure your motion at up to 240 frames per second, which gives our instructors a detailed report to better guide you to the correct motion. This technology also allows YOU the student to “FEEL” those positions and movements feel rather than feeling like a “pretzel” after being contorted into a close rendition by the golf pro. We also utilize industry changing Trackman technology to measure what the club and ball are doing in 3D as well. Remember, “if you are not assessing you are guessing!”
I just want to take lessons then practice on my own, can I do that?
While that is an option, we believe that it is counter-productive to practice on your own, as you will have no feedback, outside of where the ball goes, which we all know is bad data. We feel strongly that in order to embed the proper movements you need as many forms of feedback as possible. Practicing at NCGA gives you such feedback through the use of our Trackman and Flightscope and Video swing analysis program.
I am a beginner do I really need all of this? Will I know how to play golf at the end of my package?
While knowledge gained varies from person to person, our experience shows that beginning golfers will have a firm grasp of the Golf Swing and some really good knowledge on the rules and common practices of the game. Most people will be capable of making their way around the golf course upon the completion of a mid-level Program.
