W hile a portion of the country will soon be putting their clubs away for winter, Indian Wells Golf Resort is getting ready to resume its seasonal golf clinics – where everyone from novice players to single- digit handicappers will be able to participate in a clinic de- signed to improve their game starting on Nov. 18. "Most of the students are be- ginners, but we do have some avid golfers who might be struggling in one aspect of their game," says PGA Head Golf Professional Tom Burley. The clinics, which cost $29 per student and run Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 11 a.m., will each focus on one aspect of the game, such as chipping, the full swing and course management, with groups moving off the range and on to the course to a spe- cific hole. "Narrowing the lesson to one element is ideal for most stu- dents because golfers in gen- eral are very specific with their problems," explains Burley. Each group will be limited to eight students per instruc- tor, Burley said. And while the overall struc- ture of the clinics is designed to improve your game, it's not at the cost of a good time. "It's a fun atmosphere and even those who have never played before realize they can enjoy themselves learning how to play golf," says Burley. The end result will be a golf experience that will improve your play – while having more fun in the process. "I always like the analogy that you're going to put a few new tools into the toolbox," Burley says. "I don't think we've ever had a clinic that didn't improve one aspect of a student's game." lesson PlAn Upcoming golf clinics will focus on all aspects of the game for players of all abilities BRIEFLY… FALL OVERSEED NEAR COMPLETE T he Players Course at Indian Wells Golf Re- sort is set to reopen on Friday, Nov. 7, following the annual fall overseed process that began late last month.
