Golf Products

We finished our second stage Instructor Training and boy did the lights go on for those that were there!

When we covered the chipping segment 20 chips were “holed” from 12 to 40 feet in almost an hour! Talk about pumped!

We’ve also finished up some exciting new golf products that will soon be launching under our Medicus Golf Institute corporate banner. These are all geared toward game improvement for players of all ability levels.

We are closing our Forum Forum April 1, 2005 to everyone but Premium Members in preparation for the migration to our new site, Medicus Golf Institute.

Last, but not least, we are in the final stages of announcing our two new flagship school locations. One will be on the east coast and the other on the west coast. Stay tuned for the announcement!
