Title: Hartpury College Golf Academy Complete Their Annual Golf Winter Training Camp At Desert Springs Resort

Richard King, Golf Elite Programme Manager & PGA Instructor, Paul Johnson Sport Performance & Excellence in Golf Coach and Joanne Ronald, Head of Department for Sport at Hartpury College Golf Academy, accompanied twenty-four students aged between 16 - 18 years for 5-days of warm weather winter training at the Desert Springs Resort between 31st January & 5th February.


The Hartpury College Golf Academy provides players with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and golfing skills by offering regular coaching and playing time.  PGA Professionals at Hartpury College provide the coaching and practice sessions, which take place around academic sessions, so that students are developing both their academic and golfing abilities.

We were all made to feel so welcome, what a week!”


“The Indiana is a great course in a spectacular environment with really kind, attentive and helpful staff.”


“Beautiful weather, fantastic facilities, and a faultless golf course, a great week!”


Those are the verdicts of Josh Marshall, Reece Swain and George Bryant, all full time students from the Hartpury College Golf Academy.


The training camp utilized the excellent practice facilities at the Desert Springs Golf Academy where the PGA Instructors were able provide one-to-one tuition and take advantage of the use of the Desert Springs short game academy prior to the students embarking on their rounds on The Indiana course.


The students and officials were accommodated in some of the privately owned apartments normally reserved for holidays and short breaks at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef was on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining each evening in the ‘El Torrente’ Restaurant.


Richard King: Golf Elite Programme Manager & PGA Instructor at the Hartpury College Golf Academy remarked:


“Another fantastic tour to Desert Springs Resort where our students got to use the outstanding facilities and golf course in preparation for their competitive season. I just wish we could stay for longer!”
