One Swing at a Time

We are proud to offer the Pinewild Golf Academy to our Members, our Junior Members, and other golf enthusiasts throughout the Sandhills. Our teaching philosophy values progress over perfection and extends beyond the game itself, striving to connect with each student on a personal level. If you’re new to the game, we aim to make the game accessible and fun from day one. And if you’re seasoned veteran, it’s all about what you want to improve.

Most golf programs are designed to teach the game of golf to you. Our golf programs put YOU first!”
