New York golf school at Holiday Valley Golf CourseNew York Golf School

Our New York location is hosted by the Holiday Valley Golf Club, located on Route 219, 50 miles south of Buffalo, NY and 2 hrs from Rochester.

You can stay on-site on a golf school package, or attend as a "commuter" student.

Our golf school programs are half days (3.5 hours) of instruction. You can take one program or several, depending upon your goals. Morning sessions run 9am to 12:30pm and feature full swing work with the woods, irons and driver. Afternoon sessions take place 1:30pm to 5pm and are devoted to the short game. You'll learn about chipping and putting Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday afternoons, and pitching and bunkers on Wednesday/Friday/Sunday.

Maximum class size is 4 students per instructor.

Choose from:

  • Every morning, 9am to 12:30pm, we cover the full swing (woods and irons.)
  • Every afternoon, from 1:30pm to 5pm, is dedicated to the short game.

Short game program:

  • Afternoon A: Tues, Thur and Sat afternoons, chipping & putting.
  • Afternoon B: Wed, Fri and Sun afternoons, pitching & bunkers.

Add a 1-hour Lesson with your Pro for $80, plus reduced green and cart fees, subject to availability.

In addition to golf, visitors can enjoy the beautiful pool complex, fine dining, mountain biking and hiking. The small town flavor of nearby Ellicottville is carefully preserved in its historic homes and buildings, unique restaurants and shops.
