FARMINGTON, Pa. (March 16, 2017) – Nemacolin Woodlands Resort – the acclaimed luxury resort in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania – announces its Golf Academy has become one of the premier teaching facilities in the U.S. while led by its new director of instruction, Eric Johnson.
Johnson, one of GOLF Magazine’s “Top 100 Teachers in America,” arrived at Nemacolin just days after his former course, Oakmont Country Club, hosted the 2016 U.S. Open. He will lead the Golf Academy’s “Open House” on Sat., April 22 (3 – 5 p.m.) with a trick shot demonstration and showcase of the cutting-edge technology available including TrackMan® ball flight, SAM Puttlab and V1 Video swing analysis.

The resort’s professional club-fitter, Aaron Staricek, will also be on hand to discuss the value of playing the game with the proper equipment. Before recently coming to Nemacolin, Staricek attained multiple years of custom building and fitting expertise at the Taylormade Performance Lab at TPC Sawgrass, L.O.F.T Golf at PGA National Resort & Spa and Jupiter Hills Club.
The Nemacolin Golf Academy offers an array of game improvement programming including individual lessons as well as one-, two- and three-day golf schools.
