(Orlando, Fla.) – Garrett Froggatte, head teaching professional at The Club at Flying Horse in Colorado Springs, Colo., has been named a lead coach for Golf Channel Academy.
“I’m very excited to be among this group of highly successful, motivated and influential teachers,” said Froggatte, who has been at Flying Horse since 2008 and has since grown its junior and women’s golf programs many times over. “This is a great opportunity for golf coaches to work together and learn from one another, adopting best coaching practices to better serve their students. My goal is to help clients learn to play better and enjoy playing golf more.”
Golf Channel Academy is the first network of its kind devoted to efficiently growing the business of golf instruction. With 87 locations already committed, GCA will be inviting additional coaches to become part of the network as it continues to grow.
After graduating Baylor University, Froggatte apprenticed under Mike Bender, coach to two-time major champion Zach Johnson and one of Golf Digest’s “50 Best Teachers in America,” and also served as director of instruction at Woodmoor Pines Country Club in Monument, Colo. He continues to compete in local professional events, including the Colorado Open, and once shot a 66 to win a U.S. Open Local Qualifier.
Froggatte enjoys teaching beginning and intermediate golfers, as well as juniors, and has helped grow The Club’s PGA Junior League program from zero to four teams and 48 players. Several of Froggatte’s juniors have gone on to play collegiate golf.
The Golf Channel Academy at Flying Horse is a year-round facility designed to help players improve without being dependent on the weather. Complete with four heated hitting bays and state-of-the-art synthetic turf, the academy is open to all golfers of all levels of ability, and offers individual, group and corporate instruction programs.
