"In 1995 we opened our first center, but never dreamed that just over 20 years later we would have grown to 200 locations across multiple countries," statedJoe Assell, Co-Founder and CEO at GolfTEC. "This growth is a testament to the hundreds of coaches we employ who work tirelessly to help their students improve and enjoy the game as much as possible. Scottsdale is a tremendous golf market and this new center is unlike anything in the region."

Located at 7342 E. Shea Blvd Suite 106, the new standalone center will be the company's fifth Arizona location. The Shea-Scottsdale location features all of GolfTEC's proprietary teaching technologies including multiple hitting bays and an array of state-of-the-art equipment designed to provide customers with a totally unique learning experience.

Overseeing the facility will be Director of Instruction and PGA Member, Jeff Emmerich, who has taught thousands of lessons in his distinguished career. Emmerich comes from a strong educational background, having graduated both The Golf Academy of America and The Arizona State Professional Golf Management program and will supervise a team of highly-trained GolfTEC coaches.

The renowned, global GolfTEC coaching team is comprised of experienced professionals, most of whom are PGA professionals and have taught thousands of lessons. Each goes through a rigorous multi-week certification at GolfTEC University including continued advanced training to master the analysis of golf swing mechanics, the technology utilized by GolfTEC and the most productive teaching techniques. Committed to strengthening the industry and hiring only the best staff, GolfTEC is the largest employer of PGA Professionals in the world.

Each GolfTEC student undergoes a Swing Evaluation to assess their skill, followed by a certified personal coach recommending a specific game plan, which includes fundamental elements like course strategy and a TECfit® club fitting session. While the majority of lessons are taught indoors in private bays, coaches also accompany players for on-course/outdoor lessons to ensure they are comfortable in real world situations.
