Power Ranch Golf Academy

The Golf Academy at Power Ranch is proud to introduce a state-of-the-art, 900 square foot, climate-controlled instruction pavilion. The new facility features a Flightscope launch monitor, which provides 27 data points for ball/club data, to help fine tune the instruction/learning process as well as custom club fittings.

Additionally, live-feed video analysis featuring high speed GIGE cameras simultaneously provide two different vantage points of the swing. This video analysis will be crucial to real time improvement, as well as monitoring swing changes over a period of time.

Edufii is also used as a learning tool. This app and computer program allows students to access lesson notes, drills, and swing videos to enhance their practice time. Out of state students can upload a swing video to their profile and take a “virtual” lesson with Instructor analysis.

Services include:

  • Private Lessons: One Hour Sessions
  • Club Gapping: Get exact yardages for every club
  • Club Fitting
  • Wedge Game Lesson: Dial in your wedges and learn to play from 100 yards in
  • On-Course Playing Lesson (based on PRGC availability)

Meet The Instructors


Mike Schlund, PGA

Mike Schlund, PGA

Mike Schlund is the Director of Instruction at Power Ranch Golf Club. He has been a Teaching Pro since 1996 and earned Class “A” status in the PGA in 2002. Mike strongly believes that you can’t teach everyone to swing the same way. He analyzes not only the technical but the person and applies principles and positions that need to be followed during the golf swing. Everyone is built differently with different levels of athleticism and flexibility. Each student must be catered to based on these characteristics.

After high school, Jesse accepted a scholarship to play at St. Cloud State University, where after one successful season he turned professional, in 2010.

Some need to see the correct positions to understand the golf swing others need to feel the correct positions and they can process the golf swing better that way.
