A Few Words About Us
Founded in 2006, Core Golf was started by Tom Jackson who had the vision of bringing Canadian junior golfers to Florida to train and compete during the winter months and escape the harsh winters. As the popularity of the program grew over the years and the student base expanded to include players from all corners of the world, Core Golf has been the premier Academy for player's to attend and chase their dreams of playing elite junior golf, collegiate golf on scholarships and professional golf. As of January 2015, we expanded to being a gateway to a career in the golf industry with our Core Golf Education (Professional Golf Management) and Coaching Certification programs.
Based in Winter Garden, Florida, just west of Orlando, Core Golf and the facilities at Orange County National Golf Center combine to offer the best programs in a perfect learning environment that cannot be matched anywhere in the world.
