GolfTEC says it passed the four million mark in lesson given on April 30. The Denver-based company, founded in 1995 by PGA professionals Joe Assell (CEO) and Mike Clinton (COO) is the largest provider of game improvement in the industry and has more than 170
improvement centers in the United States, Canada, Japan, and Korea.
GolfTEC, which produces its own teaching curriculum and videos, employs more than 600 Certified Personal Coaches, most of whom are PGA professionals and apprentices. The company says it employs two percent of all golf pros in the U.S. They are responsible for giving 25 percent of all private golf lessons in the country.
How big is four million lessons? For GolfTEC it means:
- 80 million golf balls hit (an average of 20 balls per
- 160 million minutes (or 2.66 million hours) of recorded
- 1.92 billion motion measurements captured by
gSWING, GolfTEC’s proprietary software
The first GolfTEC learning center opened on April 10, 1995, in the Denver Tech Center area mall. The original concept from the earliest days remains the company’s core principle: Combining coaches, computers and motion technology to give exceptional fact-based golf
instruction that can be measured and verified.
GolfTEC lessons are taught by Certified Personal Coaches one-on-one in private, indoor bays that maximize the learning experience and utilize proprietary teaching technology to help golfers improve their skills and increase their enjoyment of the game. As a result,
GolfTEC says enjoys a 95 percent success rating from its students.
There’s no slowing down, either. GolfTEC says current projections for five million lessons is early 2015.
