The Hills Golf Academy has launched Indonesia’s very first golf academy for boarding students, in association with the President Golf School at Jababeka Golf Club, Indonesia.

Director of The Hills Golf Academy, Tom Berndt, is thrilled to establish this world-class program in Indonesia, providing the opportunity for students to play in international golf tournaments and access further coaching at leading US academies.

“The Hills Academy produces leading players from across Asia – the opportunities it creates on the international stage are so exciting for Indonesia,” said Tom.

As a first for the country, the Academy has also partnered with USA premier club fitting company, Henry Griffitts, becoming the only club fitting system in Indonesia to also fit left-handers, suited for both adults and juniors.

HG International Education Director, PGA Professional Steve Darmody, says correctly fitted equipment enhances the world-class instruction students will receive at the Hills Indonesian Academy.

“It’s vital that up and coming champions have correctly fitted equipment to ensure their potential is maximised. HG pioneered custom club fitting in 1983 and has been an educational provider to the USPGA for many years,” explained Steve.

The Indonesian Academy will follow the Hills model and pathway, to gain scholarships into US colleges, in addition to the PGA IGA program in Australia, similar programs in the US or their home countries, as well as Q schools in Asia. Previously, The Hills Academy has also produced and mentored some of the world’s leading pros including multiple tour winner, Jason Day and emerging stars Rugthai (Bright) Thongsom and Mirabel Ting.

Championing leading golfers of the future, the highly successful international Hills Golf Academies are established in Queensland, Australia, Lion Lake Golf Club, Qingyuan, China, Mickelson Golf Club and Yongchang Private School, Shanghai and now at Jababeka Golf Club in Indonesia.
