The highlights for golf schools students are at the incredible Whirlwind Golf Club. This 36 hole masterpiece was designed by Gary Panks and is home to the PGA Nationwide Tour Gila River Classic. Whirlwind was named Troon Golf's 2004, "Facility of the Year" (out of 140 course worldwide) and in a short time, has already become one of the most highly regarded facilities in all of the Southwest.  Golf school students enjoy immaculate, private, range facilities, practice greens and the two championship courses; Cattail and Devil's Claw.

Located in the heart of one of the most captivating regions of the Southwest, Sedona Golf Resort's thrilling 6,646-yard, par - 71 course is widely considered among the world's most unforgettable golf experiences.  Golf school students enjoy unlimited golf in all package offerings, while receiving the outstanding private instruction that is the hallmark of the Bird Golf Academy.
