A PGA ACCREDITED
academy for all ages

The Baobab course is Africa's only PGA-accredited course and now Vipingo Ridge is exclusively home to the PGA Academy too. Founded in 1901, the PGA is the world's first golf professional members' organisation representing over 7,500 golf professionals working in over 60 countries worldwide.

The PGA Academy offers golf lessons and instruction for all ages and abilities with the resident PGA professional. Custom club fitting and technical swing analysis using the Foresight GCQuad Launch Monitor are also available. The launch monitor uses four high speed cameras to track the club head into impact and the ball’s initial launch conditions. With this data the PGA Professional is able to advise on the suitability of a player’s equipment and suggest any changes that could be of benefit.

Attached to the Academy is a complete club repair and assembly facility where any combination of shaft and head can be built from a stock of over 100 different demo iron shafts of varying materials, flexes, weights, and bend profiles, 50+ wood shafts and 30+ hybrid shafts to help golfers custom-make a set of clubs or tune their current set. All shafts are frequency matched prior to assembly using a frequency analyser and the Academy also has an MOI matching machine for those that would prefer their clubs assembled using this method.
