Private Lessons

One-on-one private instruction is available for students seeking to better their playing ability. Our Professional Staff can tailor a program to each student's needs, but offers a standard 45-minute lesson to cover any aspect of the game; putting, short game, irons, or woods; or we can take the learning environment to the course with one of our playing lessons (9 or 18 holes). Learning to play the game properly and manage your skills on the course will help you play better and have more fun!

TFC Golf Academy

TFC Golf Academy was founded in Fall 2017, with the introduction of the Operation 36 Coaching Platform. The Academy offers player development activities to golfers of all ages and skill level, featuring our long-term coaching program, TFC Junior Academy and TFC Ladies Academy (coming Spring 2018!), private instruction, weekly clinics, game evaluations and golf schools! Our Professional Staff is excited to help our members and families grow their skills and love for the game of golf through our first-class programs!

The Platform works for players of ALL AGES and SKILL LEVELS! Social or Competitive players can learn and develop their ability and enjoyment of the game through the simple and structured framework and curriculum of TFC Golf Academy. We believe in three core tenets to developing and loving the game of golf:

Playing: In TFC Golf Academy, we play TFC Matches to test skills being learned by challening players to shoot PAR (36) or better for 9 holes. All players start from 25 yards and progress to longer yardages once the objective is achieved!

Learning: Our Academy Classes provide a small group environment (6:1 student-coach ratio) to learn and develop golf skills through the Operation 36 curriculum. Players advance through six (6) progressive Levels, demonstrating competency to their Coach for each of the 12 skill objectives. Skill objectives include: Posture, Grip, Alignment, Putting, Green Reading, Power, Ball Flight, Work Ethic, Mastery, Honor, Fitness & Nutrition, and Performance (TFC Matches).

Training: Supervised Practices are structured training sessions with their Coach, which allow students to gain feedback from their Coach to ensure efficient and proper practice.

TFC Golf Academy Classes and Supervised Practices are held once a week, and TFC Matches are held bi-weekly. For the Fall 2017 semester we plan to host an 8-week Program. If you are interested in learning more, contact Bret Templeton, PGA, via email bret@thefederalclub.com or call the Golf Shop, (804) 798-4996.

In 2017, we introduced TFC Golf Academy, powered by the Operation 36 Player Development Platform. Operation 36® is organized by a network of golf professionals who believe to grow the game, we need to have a motivating player development roadmap to help introduce and develop skilled golfers. The challenge we set for our players is the score of 36 (par for 9 holes). By working from green to tee-box versus the traditional tee-box to green it lowers the challenge point, and is a motivating way to learn and progress in the sport.
