Pennsylvania Golf School - The Teacher Who Listens
By Brian Weis
Being in a classroom where you know the subject matter and understand the teacher is not overwhelming and for many is even relaxing. On the other hand, walking into a class where you're lost from the second the teacher introduces themselves sucks.
We all want to feel empowered in the classroom, confident we are learning and becoming well versed in whatever the day's lesson plans are.
The same principle applies on the golf course. I know my goal is to hit from between the tee markers and get it in the hole in the least number of strokes possible. I don't know the best way to do it.
We all share a similar mindset and having a teacher who takes the time to make sure you aren't lost, that you're gaining value, and each lesson leaves you in a better place than you started is all you can ask for. The Pennsylvania Golf School knows this, and the teachers share the mindset of the students.
A Two-Way Street
A golf school instructor needs to be friendly, caring, and above all, knowledgeable. With Bird Golf, that's what you get. A recent attendee, Debi, had this to say about her pro.
"She is so humble and so easy to work with that when you have to take constructive criticism and make changes, it's very easy to do. Her attitude is not about her, it's about what you have and what she can bring out of you as an athlete and golfer which is very refreshing. I know a lot of people that have gone to golf schools and they walked away with the impression that it was more about the instructor than the student. I couldn't ever see a situation where [she] would have that attitude,"
"This experience is going to make me a better golfer but more importantly, it has shown me some things about myself that I have lost touch with. Now I have a better understanding of who I am and what I'm capable of going forward."
The Pennsylvania Golf School embodies a culture of respect and learning. Because the environment fosters friendship as much as it does lower scores, students find joy in the game. While many find that happiness solely through lower scores, other individuals seek a holistic experience. This second group of people are ones who thrive-and end up with even better scores.
More than Golf
If you want to improve your swing for a few rounds, you take a lesson. If you want sustained improvement and a refreshed outlook, you make your way to the Pennsylvania Golf School.
At this type of facility, you're knee deep in the game the second you arrive. You're around like-minded individuals of varying skill levels trying to improve. You have access to facilities, golf and otherwise, that give you the breathing room needed to throw away stress and find harmony with your game.
A few hours on the course, a few hours taking in views or indulging in the other amenities-it all comes together. When you're at a golf school, you work together with top notch professionals and yourself. This means putting yourself first, and whether it's in golf or life, you always come out on top.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.

In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born.

It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
