Extraordinary Golf Academy


Extraordinary Golf™ is more than a golf school. It’s a golf experience.

Extraordinary Golf programs have an uncommonly large scope and vision with an intention to rejuvenate a golfer’s spirit of play, to rekindle their love of learning and their sense of possibility for the game. What people learn and discover from participating in Extraordinary Golf may alter their moment-to-moment experience of golf and life.

Founded by golf professional, coach and author Fred Shoemaker, Extraordinary Golf has been ranked as one of America’s top 25 golf schools.

The programs rest on the premise that real breakthroughs are achieved not by increasing the time and effort golfers expend, but by altering the fundamental ways they practice, play, and how they see themselves.
Participants learn all the ‘stuff of golf’ (putting, chipping, full swing, etc.) but, they also learn how to…

  • Learn, concentrate and self-coach in an awareness-based process
  • Explore and access the source of learning, performance and mastery
  • Develop their game from a model based on their natural instincts

Extraordinary Golf’s program is different from other golf schools in Carmel. The point of entry into Extraordinary Golf’s curriculum is The Foundational Program, three days dedicated to meeting each participant’s needs, while developing their ability to self-coach in areas of their choosing, in addition to putting, short game, full swing, solid contact, curving the ball, bunkers, learning on the course, etc. This program also explores concentration, learning how to learn, the source of performance and mastery, and much more.

*Requires previous participation in a foundational program
