Hills Golf Academy, President Golf School & Henry Griffitts establish a national first for Indonesia
In a first for the country, the Academy has also partnered with Henry Griffitts (HG) to include the world class club fitting system for both adults and juniors, being the only club fitting system in Indonesia to also fit left handers.
Hills Golf Academy has produced and mentored some of the world’s leading pros including multiple tour winner Jason Day and emerging stars Rugthai (Bright) Thongsom and Mirabel Ting.
Hills’ Director Tom Berndt is thrilled to establish this world class program in Indonesia providing the opportunity for students to play in international golf tournaments and access further coaching at leading US academies.
“The Hills Academy produces leading players from across Asia – the opportunities it creates on an international stage is so exciting for Indonesia,” he announces.
The Hills Academy, based at the five-star Jababeka Golf Club is headed by Australian PGA golf professional and previous tour player, Gavin Webb.
The program is in association with The President School school’s boarding students based in Jababeka.
The Indonesian Academy will follow the Hills model and pathway, to gain scholarships into US colleges, in addition to the PGA IGA program in Australia, similar programs in the US or their home countries, as well as Q schools in Asia.
Hills has also teamed with USA premier club fitting company, Henry Griffitts (HG) to provide excellence in club fitting.
HG International Education Director, PGA Professional Steve Darmody, says correctly fitted equipment enhances the world class instruction students will receive at the Hills Indonesian Academy.
“It’s vital that up and coming champions have correctly fitted equipment to ensure their potential is maximised.
HG pioneered custom club fitting in 1983 and has been an educational provider to the USPGA for many years” he explains.
Championing leading golfers for the future, the highly successful international Hills Golf Academies are established in Queensland, Australia, Lion Lake Golf Club, Qingyuan, China, Mickelson Golf Club and Yongchang Private School, Shanghai and now at Jababeka Golf Club in Indonesia.
