Crystal River Golf School

Sometimes in golf, everything falls into place. There's nothing more satisfying than splitting the fairway with a fantastic tee shot or sinking a 30-foot birdie putt. The simple fact is that the better you get, the more of that feeling you'll experience. Golf is a game of a thousand adjustments. You've mastered certain aspects, while others may still be a bit out of your reach. That's okay. We're here to enhance your game, not remake it. We respect what you already do well. And we focus on turning your liabilities into assets.

Start with a par-72 18-hole championship course. Toss in a nine-hole executive course specifically designed for training and practice purposes. Add a golf school offering America's most successful teaching program. Now stand back and take a look at what you've created: golf heaven. Located on the unspoiled shores of the Gulf Coast of Florida with easy access to Tampa, this championship golf course is part of a beautifully restored lodge and resort, including an elegant manor house, villas, condos, guest rooms, hot tub and pool, as well as volleyball, tennis, shuffleboard and croquet. Nine holes of golf were developed for the use of Golf School patrons. Make your visit even more memorable by diving into the 72 degree water at King Springs, just a few hundred yards from our front door, to snorkel with gentle manatees, explore underwater caves, or watch dolphins and a myriad of fish. You can also enjoy biking or horseback riding among trees dripping with Spanish moss, boat any of the many spring-fed rivers, or watch the innumerable species of birds and waterfowl that are attracted to this area.

Renew your game in new surroundings

The Original Golf School™ at the newly remodeled Plantation Golf Resort and Spa. Since 1983 The Original Golf School has made its winter home at this deluxe resort in beautiful Crystal River, Florida, just north of Tampa. Now, the Plantation Golf Resort and Spa is even more inviting with renovations to all existing guest rooms, as well as 60 new hotel rooms and 20 new condominium units adjacent to the challenging 27-hole golf course.

Golf is played on a course, of course. Hitting balls on the range or putting on the practice green is not our idea of on-course instruction. The Plantation Golf Resort and Spa has nine championship holes dedicated exclusively to personal instruction. So you learn skills such as course management and proper club selection on the course, not near it.

Experience. The Difference. PGA Professional Jay Morelli has directed The Original Golf SchoolTM since its inception in 1978. In 2006, Golf Digest rated Jay the #1 teacher in Vermont, and he was also named "New England PGA Teacher of the Year" in 1989. He and his Crystal Riverstaff of professional instructors average 15 years of experience each - longer than most schools have existed.

4:1 student to teacher ratio. To guarantee that your game receives special attention, each class has a maximum of four students grouped according to playing ability with each PGA professional.
