Our Mission

At OneSwing Golf Academy, we empower students to take charge of their futures by giving them the requisite skills they need not only excel in golf, but also in life. We believe that learning is an exciting journey where curiosity leads to discovery - which is why all students are taught to appreciate both individual excellence and celebrate successes as part of larger collective effort!

Extraordinary Experiences

The ACADEMY was created to give children who would maybe never get the opportunity to learn Golf to do so. Kids who come to The Academy compete in numerous tournaments throughout the year and create friendships for a lifetime. 


Golf requires discipline, focus and hard work, with the assistance of several coaches and their unique ability to bring out their natural talents, your kids, within a few months have the training and tools they need to navigate the golf course, throughout and attain and maintain their handicap.


The Academy has grown to become the premier youth golfing school in Sacramento and everyone here hopes to see you and your family soon.

Golf Lessons Become Life Lessons!

To prepare all students with the skills they need to be confident in golf, academics and life. To provide instruction by a diverse group of effective teachers and coaches who provide exemplary skills that instills wonder, values discovery and encourages team participation .
