For the past six years, The Vintage Club has conducted a golf school with a special guest list that would make any golfer smile.
I started this school in 2009 in an effort to not only provide an incredible learning environment for our students, but to also bring in the highest level of talent in the game of golf.

Since its inception, we have had guest instructor, Jim McLean, for the first three schools and recently Sean Foley for the past three. Along with these two world-class coaches, we have a stable of 14 local instructors including our teaching staff at The Vintage Club.
This kind of fire power is enough to make any group of students excited to learn, but I wanted to create not only a golf school but a lasting memory for the students by giving them a glance into the minds of some the top players in the world.

During the past six years, we have had a list of guest PGA and LPGA pros attend the school that would make any golfer drool. Matt Kuchar, Mike Weir, Camillo Villegas, Natalie Gulbis, Nick Faldo, Annika Sorenstam, Dave Stockton, Jason Day and Gary Player all have attended.
"When you think of all of these great instructors and world class pros, all in the same place helping you with your game and sharing their stories with you at your own course, it's pretty unbelievable," says Dick Heckmann, who is a Vintage Club member and golf school attendee. "It's a special event that many of us look forward to each year."
When you think of a dream lineup of tour pros and world-class instruction wrapped up in one event, this is it. Just one more event that makes The Vintage Club such a special place.
