The Everest Academy golf program enables students to reach their potential as both athletes and people by teaching the value of practice to achieve excellence, use new levels of concentration to get best results and develop above average eye-hand co-ordination to make those special shots come true. The program is developed and led by Henry Brunton, BPE.
Students, working with Henry and his team, will experience a comprehensive and systematic approach to their training. They will develop and improve on sound technical fundamentals, ball striking skills, short game proficiency, on course performance and personal development throughout the golf season. Students will experience an intensive training program for those looking to make golf a career choice, including students looking towards an NCAA path.
Henry Brunton and his team have an unparalleled record in Canadian golf for developing junior golfers who graduate to NCAA and CIS University golf teams.
