(FARMINGDALE, N.Y.) – More than six dozen of golf’s leading teachers have united to create the most complete, diverse and affordable golf instruction website and app the industry has ever seen.
The Golf Institute offers everything from quick tips, to a schedule of live classes, to on demand one-on-one lessons from golf instructors across the country. Some of the tips are free of charge. Other elements of The Golf Institute are pay as you go. Golfers can also subscribe for $19.95 monthly and take advantage of the hundreds of learning opportunities provided.
The Golf Institute is the brainchild of Kelley Brooke, Director of Golf at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, NY, and the 2018 LPGA Golf Professional of the Year. A protégé of Butch Harmon, Brooke felt the need for quality virtual instruction once COVID-19 took hold of the country a year ago.
“During Covid we needed to pivot our ‘in-person’ golf program,” said Brooke. “The pros at Bethpage and I produced about 150 lectures, assignments, troubleshooting and homework videos and put them online. Then I recruited over 70 teaching professionals to join in. Many of them are award-winning instructors: Golf Digest Top 50, PGA Professionals of the Year, former Tour players, Solheim Cup captains. It’s an impressive list. Now we have over 240 free instruction videos on site.”
All aspects of golf are covered on the Golf Institute site, including fitness. There are general workout videos, as well as workouts geared toward specific areas of your game. You can learn what to eat and how to stay properly hydrated. You can become a better putter, a deadly wedge player, a superb shot-maker and add distance to your tee ball. There are videos to elevate your mental game and ones to assist in course management. The options are nearly endless.
“This is truly one-stop shopping in regards to golf instruction,” said Brooke. “Beginners can find everything they need to eventually feel comfortable stepping onto a golf course. Mid- to high-handicappers have enough resources here to take strokes off their score. And advanced players can sharpen specific aspects of their games.”
The Premium Membership package, which runs $19.95 monthly, includes:
- Live classes with award-winning golf professionals
- Discounted private lessons
- On Demand classes
- Enrollment into the One Line Golf Academy
- Fitness Video Lessons
- Mental Game Videos

The Golf Institute has the added benefit of developing new golfers, a constant goal of everyone involved in the industry.
“I would like for TGI to become the Peloton of golf, where we are bringing golf into people’s homes in a more affordable and efficient way,” said Brooke. “You don’t have to spend $150 an hour to learn golf. You can learn it on your own time and in the comfort of your own home, within your budget.”
