    I had the pleasure of attending a week-long retreat at NewSwing Academies, and I can confidently say that it was an extraordinary experience. Jose Anderson and his team of coaches are absolute game-changers, and I cant recommend them highly enough.
    From the moment we arrived, it was evident that Jose had a unique and avant-garde approach to teaching that set him apart from the rest. We had initially planned for 34 employees to join the retreat, but when one of the administrators expressed concerns about our group size, Jose intervened, showing his unwavering commitment to ensuring we had the best possible learning experience. He not only accommodated our group but also personally led all of our group clinics, lessons, and even gave a captivating presentation of his own golfing skills.
    Joses exceptional golfing talent shines through, even more so when you consider his relatively young age. I can confidently say that he is the best golf instructor I have ever had the privilege of learning from. His passion for the sport and dedication to teaching are truly inspiring.
    One of the highlights of my time at NewSwing Academies was when one of Joses coaches shared the backstory of how he personally trains every coach they hire. Its truly remarkable to witness the level of dedication and care that goes into crafting each and every member of their coaching team. This meticulous approach undoubtedly contributes to the academys exceptional reputation and the outstanding quality of instruction they provide.
    NewSwing Academies is more than just a golf school; its a place where passion, innovation, and top-notch instruction come together to create an unforgettable learning experience. I left the retreat not only with improved golfing skills but also with a newfound appreciation for the sport, thanks to Jose Anderson and his exceptional team of coaches. If youre looking to elevate your golf game and learn from the best, NewSwing Academies is the place to be. I wholeheartedly give them a well-deserved 5-star rating!

    NewSwing Academies is truly an exceptional place for children to learn and enjoy the game of golf. My three kids recently attended their LA Academy, and it turned out to be an experience they wont forget anytime soon. Despite being beginners, they quickly picked up the intricacies of the sport in just a few weeks, thanks to the fantastic coaching they received.
    Coach Jose Anderson, who happened to be the President and Founder of the academy, personally instructed one of my children. His humble and dedicated approach towards teaching was truly admirable. It was only later that I discovered his prestigious role within the organization. Coach Jose Andersons program is a testament to his passion for providing a fun-oriented learning environment for all ages.
    Witnessing a few of the classes and clinics, I was delighted to see the beaming smiles on all the kids faces. The programs popularity is evident from the weekly participation of almost 100 kids, a feat that speaks volumes about Coach Jose Andersons remarkable leadership. The option for parents to join in the clinics added an extra layer of inclusivity and fun.
    The entire team of coaches at NewSwing Academies deserves commendation for their dedication and excellence. I wish there were more classes available, as my kids were genuinely sad when it was time to leave. Thank you, NewSwing Academies, for creating such an unforgettable and enriching experience for my entire family. We cant wait to come back for more!
