Farmington, PA - The Nemacolin Golf Academy, the game improvement epicenter at Pennsylvania's premier luxury golf resort destination, announced a special Two-Day Golf School on July 13 - 14. The total-game-improvement-focused school will be led by Nemacolin's director of instruction Mike LaBella, a Golf Digest Best Young Teacher along with the renowned Andrew Rice, one of Golf Digest's 50 Best Teachers in America.

"The Nemacolin Golf Academy is offering the ultimate game improvement experience this July," says LaBella. "The opportunity to work with Andrew Rice, one of the leading minds in golf instruction, and our Nemacolin instruction staff in our state-of-the-art learning environment is the ideal way to turn the weaknesses in your game into strengths that help you play better and lower your handicap."

Golfers looking to improve any aspect of their full swing as well as the short game won't want to miss this rare opportunity to work with this duo of top teachers in an academy setting optimized for fostering better play. The Nemacolin Golf Academy utilizes cutting-edge hardware like TrackMan launch monitors and simulators, Foresight Sports' GCQuad launch monitor, and Swing Catalyst's Balance and Dual Force Plates.

The Golf Academy's four spacious hitting bays, complete with a dedicated, 1,000-square-foot putting room, also opens up to the outdoor 25-station driving range that sits adjacent to two short-game practice areas, a large putting green.

The July golf school with Rice and LaBella also includes custom video analysis and on-course lessons on one of Nemacolin's acclaimed championship golf courses.

Rice, one of the most sought-after instructors in the game, is the director of instruction at The Club at Savannah Harbor in Savannah, Ga., and has been teaching golf for 25 years. He is a Golf Pass Staff Instructor, a TrackMan Master and one of nine TrackMan University Partners in the world. Rice is also a Swing Catalyst and Arccos Ambassador. LaBella, who helms operations at The Nemacolin Golf Academy, cites his three most important characteristics for every golfer as course management, a strong short game, and placing an emphasis on specific shot skills rather than picture-perfect technique.

For golfers looking for practical, repeatable skills that breed confidence and consistency, this Two-Day Golf School at the Nemacolin Golf Academy July 13 - 14 is the perfect chance to lower their handicaps in 2023.

"I'm excited to come to Nemacolin and conduct this incredible learning experience in one of the finest teaching academies in the country. If you enroll in this Two-Day School, you're going to leave with confidence and a working plan for practicing smarter and executing your best shots on the golf course." Rice says.
