The Applecross Golf Academy
Programs are always in Full Swing.

It is important to stay active and get outside to enjoy the fresh air during these challenging times. Golf is certainly a great way to do just that.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 virus and the renovation of Tregos the golf school has limited space to hold all of the regular programs through the off-season. The Adult, Junior & Little Linkster clinics will continue through the off-season. We will also offer the Junior League this Fall and private lessons are available year round. The Adult & Jr. Short Game classes will resume in the Spring of 2023!

***Regarding Covid-19...We will continue to follow the guidelines of the state of Pennsylvania and the CDC to ensure that we are doing all that we can to keep our staff and your family safe during golf activities. At this time, we continue to operate at 60% capacity and accept a limited number of students per class. We will practice social distancing, roping off lesson areas from other golfers when necessary, providing hand sanitizer, and sanitizing frequently touched surfaces as well. Weather may force classes inside and face coverings are recommended but not required. Otherwise, we will remain outside to practice to keep a safe distance apart. So rest assure, with the size of our outdoor practice areas and working in smaller than usual groups, staff has the ability to teach golf with enough physical distance to remove masks and enjoy learning to play the game of golf.***

Please remain home if you or a family member may be sick. Contact Eric MacCluen immediately to reschedule. Program credit will be issued for any missed classes to be used for instruction during the 2022 season once proof of a negative Covid-19 test is received.

Eric has taught Michaela Cavener from the age of 10 and is quite proud
of all her accomplishments in life and in golf...

"Eric is very unique in the fact that he can explain the golf swing to kids in a way that they can understand it. He uses a variety of tools to create different drills that are usually made of things that can be found around the house. The way he teaches is fun for kids... and his passion for kids is unlike any other. I will always be grateful to Eric MacCluen for inspiring my passion for golf and providing me the foundation I need to pursue my dreams."
