Former world number one golfer Greg Norman is bringing his passion for growing the game of golf to the world’s largest sporting destination, Lake Point Sporting Community located outside Atlanta, GA. Norman recently announced that he and his team at Greg Norman Golf Course Design will begin working to design a first-class golf facility within the LakePoint complex. The more than 30 acre facility which is scheduled to open in late 2014 will ultimately include a full-service practice range, a nine-hole par 3 course and a Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy (GNCGA) offering expert coaching and instruction to visitors at LakePoint.
It is expected that Norman’s academy will also host many international golfers as he was recently appointed as the Advisory
Coach to the China National Golf Team in their bid for the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
Norman and his team are creating an extensive program for the China National Golf Team which will include regular visits to GNCGA facilities. Norman also has a Golf Course Design facility and personnel located in Beijing, China.
“I have seen first-hand how the game of golf can change a persons life, and I want to be able to give back experiences and advice to help grow the game,” said Hall of Fame golfer Greg Norman. “The academy will provide top-flight instruction and customized programs to help a player at any age, and at any skill level, become a better golfer.”
“LakePoint is honored to have one of the finest players of the game of golf as part of our ever growing family of best-in-class partners and brands,” said LakePoint Sports Partner, Judy Sparks.
The Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy at LakePoint will include indoor training bays equipped with V-1 video equipment and the latest swing analysis technology; extensive onsite custom club fitting technology; a Cybex equipped gym; practice greens, bunkers and practice tees, as well as classrooms for on-site and online education programs.
