The Harvey Penick Golf Academy is a Texas golf academy located in Austin. We offer a golf clinic featuring the teaching philosophy of one of the greatest instructors of all time, Harvey Penick. In collaboration with Austin writer Bud Shrake, Harvey authored several golf instruction books with millions of copies sold. The number one and two all-time sports best sellers are Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book (1992) and If You Play Golf, You’re My Friend (1993). These were followed by For All Who Love the Game (1995) and The Game for a Lifetime (1996), a work in progress at the time of his death.
Beginning in 1993 and ending in 2009, the Penick Academy was held at Golfsmith and had well over 20,000 students attend. Now, under the leadership of the former Head Professional and one of the original instructors, Jim Hopkins, it continues to help students of all levels increase their enjoyment of the great game of golf. Our goal is to provide a quality golf clinic while simultaneously offering an enjoyable golf vacation.
One of the truly unique things about our academy is that you will be working directly with instructors who knew Mr. Penick. In this time of advanced theories and confusing golf swing technology that can tie your body and mind into knots, Harvey's simple thoughts using clear images and direct instruction work as well today as they ever have. At the Harvey Penick Academy, we will teach you the principles you need to understand for a lifetime of enjoying this great game!
We are very proud to announce that all
our Austin, Texas academies
will now be held at beautiful
near Lake Travis!!!
Unlike many other schools, class sizes are always kept small.
It is much more like individual instruction in a group setting.
We spent a great deal of time on-course instead of just
hitting balls on the range.
At the Harvey Penick Academy, the student comes first!
LODGING: The prices for our schools do NOT include lodging. However, a special rate has been set aside for Harvey Penick Golf Academy attendees at a few area hotels.
