Training Facility

The 12,000 square foot putting green stands out among the rest of the short game facilities and proves that Zion Hills Golf County means business. Being one of the few courses with top quality bent grass greens, keeping them in shape is usually the biggest challenge. Zion Hills Golf County has risen to this challenge and does a great job of it. There is never a compromise on the maintenance of the facility. Even a small detail like the quality of range balls used is taken care of.

Intra Academy Competition

The essence of a good player is his/her ability to manage the game under competitive stress. Students at TSG are engaged in a weekly Intra Academy competition, competing against each other on a level playing field. This helps the students understand their current skill level and also lets them learn through a post round self evaluation that we call error detection. Students are also taken to Golf courses outside of Zion Hills for Intra Academy competitions to give them some experience on unfamiliar terrain.
