TROON ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH THE G2 GIRLS GOLF ACADEMY
Posted on December 17, 2020
Scottsdale, Ariz. (December 17, 2020) – Troon®, the leader in club management, development, and marketing, is pleased to announce a partnership with The G2 Girls Golf Academy, a unique golf training system developed specifically for female junior golfers. G2 will deliver the 15-week, girls-only training model at select Troon-managed facilities across the country, including the first at Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples in Naples, Florida beginning in January 2021.
Based in Bluffton, South Carolina, G2 has trained female junior golfers of all skill levels using scientific-based instruction designed to remove barriers of traditional instruction in a collaborative group environment and to encourage girls to reach their full potential in golf and in life. G2 students receive world-class training in golf, mental training, physical fitness, nutrition, leadership and college placement. Training includes bench-marking and development in “Five Levels of Competency” lead by a certified teaching professional. Students advance through each level by completing tasks and skill-level evaluations – all tracked and charted in the student-specific mobile App.
“We are excited to partner with Troon and expand our G2 training programs at Troon-managed facilities across the country,” said Ray Travaglione, Founder and CEO, The G2 Academy. “The best opportunity for female athletes to gain college scholarships is through golf. The G2 training program provides a roadmap for getting recruited to play college golf, including a comprehensive developmental plan and opportunities to build golf resumes.”
The G2 Academy is open to female junior golfers ages 11 to 18, from entry level to advanced player. G2’s girls-only program is based on science and backed by research which provides an atmosphere for learning that is focused and minimizes distractions so expectations become achievable while having fun and learning to play golf.
“Growing the game and providing opportunities to advance in the sport are key tenets at Troon,” said Bruce Glasco, chief operating officer, Troon. “The G2 Golf Academy model is one that provides female junior golfers a chance to not only advance in the game, but also grow their self-confidence.”
About The G2 Golf Academy The G2 Academy provides a competitive, distraction-free environment where it’s all about the girls. G2’s Proprietary Training Program is designed to help female junior golfers achieve their goals. In addition to success on the course, G2’s mission is to empower girls to own their future. We are developing the next generation of female leaders, providing the training and skills they need to win in golf and in the world outside of golf. At The G2 Academy, female junior golfers are surrounded by girls who share their dedication and passion for the game, in addition to a team of coaches who provide the instruction and tools needed to achieve their ambitions. The girls-only training environment at G2 removes all of the barriers that have inhibited girls in golf, allowing them to reach their full potential.
