Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy (GNCGA) was created to meet the needs of top golfers at every stage of their amateur and professional development. The GNCGA is built on the professional playing career and instructional know-how of Greg Norman to provide a comprehensive development platform for golfers seeking to dramatically improve their ability to compete effectively and win.

GNCGA provides expert coaching and instruction based on a proprietary teaching methodology that effectively develops and reinforces proper fundamentals while integrating the individuality of each player’s body and swing, with the state-of-the-art equipment. Our aim is to provide golfers in the U.S. and abroad with an instruction program and training environment in which the ability to play collegiate and professional golf can be fully developed. By opening our doors to these young players, we can provide them with consistent, effective training based on direct experience of what it takes to compete and win at every level of the game.

At Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy, each student athlete, both amateur and professional, receives outstanding instruction from a certified instructor. Individualized golf programs help maximize each student's potential to help achieve personal goals through technical golf skills, physical fitness, and mental strategy.

The Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy is the most distinctive golf learning center in the country as it features the most comprehensive training programs for all ages and skill levels. The GNCGA is located in North Myrtle Beach, SC and opened in August 2012 with a new world class 9,500 sq. ft Barefoot Resort facility that features:

  • 3 indoor training bays equipped with V-1 video equipment, the latest in swing analysis technology
  • Extensive club fitting technology with Taylor Made club fittings on site

As a part of the Barefoot Resort family, the GNCGA will also have access to the four signature courses. In 2001, Greg Norman, Tom Fazio, and Davis Love opened their designed courses on the Grand Strand. The resort clubhouse opened in 2001, followed by the Dye Clubhouse a year later, accelerating Barefoot's ascension in the Myrtle Beach golf hierarchy. Barefoot's rise also garnered national attention. The Love Course was honored by Golf Magazine as one of the nation's top 10 new public courses when it opened, and since 2007, the Love, Fazio and Dye layouts have been ranked among America's 100 Greatest Public Courses by Golf Digest.

We offer virtually every possible instructional technology and every amenity available to help our students reach their highest potential. After years in the conceptual stages, we believe the Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy is the blueprint for training the future of golf!
