Golf Academy

A noted instructor, James Skrypec has taught at many prestigious clubs, including Olde Florida Golf Club, The National Golf Club of Canada, The Golf Lab, Jasper Park Lodge Golf Club and Castle Stuart Golf Links.

Throughout James’ career he has been able to learn from and be mentored by some of the most brilliant golf minds in Canada, including Laird White, Mark Burke, Liam Mucklow, Reggie Millage, Nick Starchuck, and Jason Helman.

Deer Ridge’s instruction philosophy is based on individualized teaching, starting with a full game analysis where you will hit a number of iron shots, tee shots, short-game shots, and putts. From here you will receive a customized program that is unique to your goals and will accelerate progress.

Technology has a huge impact on teaching and Deer Ridge is the only area club that has invested in a TrackMan to help its students get the most out of their games. TrackMan measures the trajectory of any shot, displays a three-dimensional rendering with 26 impact zones and ball flight data in real time. Consider it like an MRI machine for a golf instructor, providing the relevant detail needed to help fix a swing or properly fit clubs.

Deer Ridge also offers juniors camps—fun-filled, action-packed camps to help your children develop traits that will help them on and off the golf course.
