On July 1st, 2006 Heartland officially expanded regionally in SE Asia, setting roots at Jurong Country Club in Singapore. After 8 years of "Growing the Game of Golf in Asia" through his locations in Thailand, USPGA Professional Tony Meechai was elated when the opportunity came up to share Club Focused Instruction with golfers of Singapore.
Born in 1995, Heartland Golf Schools originated in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Founder, Ed LeBeau, implemented his vision to make learning golf easy and make it accessible to all. Using the teachings of Manuel de la Torre, Mr. Lebeau created a golf learning process that has been recognized by many. Heartland's concept is to go to the "heart" of the student and have them learn golf the simple way.
Heartland Golf Co. (Thailand) was created at the Springfield Village Golf & Spa in Cha-Am, Thailand. Pro Tony Meechai, a USPGA Professional and Heartland Instructor, embarked on a dream to make learning golf a reality for everyone in Thailand. Heartland Golf Schools is now one of Asia's leading golf educational institutions having trained over 50 instructors. On top of the Singapore location now at Sembawang Country Club, Heartland currently has three locations in Thailand and is proud to now be serving many international customers.
Your golf swing is like your signature, it is unique and there is no reason to copy that of anyone else. Based on the teachings of Manuel de la Torre and Ed LeBeau, our "Club Focused Instruction" is centred on the knowledge that ANYONE can learn to play golf. After years of research and touching the lives of thousands of new and experienced golfers, the formula is working. The movements of the golf swing are very similar to the Natural movements one makes in other sports andin every day activities. Essentially, if you can bounce a ball and throw a bucket of water, you have all the tools needed for building an effective golf swing. Club Focused Instruction not only makes golf easy to learn, but makes it extremely fun as well!
Our teaching conveys the universal principles that produce optimal control and distance. Further, our teachings recognize that while these principles are universal and apply to every shot and every club, our teachings also recognize the individuality of each golfer. Once the golfer understands what is required for the ball to be struck by the club with consistency and accuracy, the golfer then can then be focused on the simplicity of moving the golf club in the correct manner, without the distraction and confusion of multiple and sequential body movements taught by traditional golf instruction.
Heartland's service to golfers is to teach these principles and then to help the golfer to discover the best way for them to comply with the principles.
