After establishing academies in Canada, France, Italy, UAE and England, and coaching players of all levels, from beginners to winners on the PGA tours, including a former number 1 in the World, we have designed a unique Golf Academy concept which not only enhances a player’s performance, but improves a club or resort’s overall bottom line via positive impact on all revenue streams, allowing ownership a tangible return of investment.

A golf academy by Dellanzo designs a full range of practice facilities to play every type of shot, latest generation golf studios, fitness assessment areas, bespoke club fitting solutions, and manages the facility to the highest quality standards.
