SCOTTSDALE, AZ – Four golf coaches and educators are joining forces to create GenNXT Golf Academy – the first high performance junior golf academy in the American Southwest.
Pia Nilsson and Lynn Marriott of VISION54, Dr. Rick Jensen of the Dr. Rick Jensen Performance Center at PGA National and Canadian Henry Brunton have selected the Talking Sticking GC as the home base for the ground-breaking academy for aspiring golfers from 14 to 18 years of age.
The golf athlete development program will open its doors January 5th, 2016 and is currently accepting athlete applications for the semester that runs until June 5th. It’s a full-time residential golf academy for boys and girls ages 14 to 18 with a variety of housing and educational options available for consideration. There are options for athletes to participate in GenNXT for a month, a semester or a full school year. The 2016/2017 GenNXT Academy will commence August 22nd.
“We have created GenNXT to be a boutique style high performance golf academy. We are all committed to providing exceptional coaching and training support while developing personal relationships with all of our athletes,” says Brunton, a GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher who spent 13 years as the Head Coach of Canada’s National Golf Team.
Athletes will have full access to the exceptional practice facilities and two remarkable 18-hole Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw designed golf courses at Talking Stick Resort, which is also the home base for spring training for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies.
