/24-7PressRelease/ - BIRMINGHAM, AL, October 27, 2007 - When golfers at Ross Bridge start playing better and getting lower scores, they may have a secret weapon - Buha Golf Academy. Founded by Jason Buha, a former PGA Tour player, Nationwide Tour Champion, and Collegiate All-American, the Buha Golf Academy offers innovative golf instruction in a picturesque setting.
Located at Renaissance Ross Bridge Alabama Golf Resort & Spa, the Buha Golf Academy offers individual and group lessons to everyone from beginning golfers to LPGA professionals. Located at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail's newest resort, the Buha Golf Academy appeals to both corporate meeting groups and individual leisure guests.
"From beginning golfers to top touring professionals, I am establishing this academy to offer state-of-the-art golfing instruction along with a wonderful resort experience," said Buha. "And just as the Retirement Systems of Alabama has put Alabama on the map as a destination for the best collection of public golf courses in the world, my goal is to complement this with the highest level of golf instruction."
Structured like many of the nation's leading golf academies, the Buha Golf Academy offers personal one-on-one sessions; one- to three-day mini schools and retreats; junior camps, and custom corporate clinics. The academy's programs incorporate the latest technology including comprehensive computer and video analysis, a club fitting evaluation, as well as a specific plan for ongoing improvement designed to enhance a player's full swing and their short game. For more advanced students looking to "build a lifelong game", playing lessons and a player's school focus on playing and scoring.
After playing at Ross Bridge during a practice session while on the Nationwide Tour, Buha realized that the high profile course would be an ideal location for his academy. According to Buha, Ross Bridge is the perfect course for the academy because instruction packages will cater to every level of player. "From the beginner to the tour player, Ross Bridge has an awesome playability...and that's the sign of a great resort golf course," Buha said.
"It has been proven that more business can happen in four to five hours on the golf course than through just about any other outlet," said Buha. "When you're playing golf, you get to know the personalities of those you're playing with. It's just a great vehicle for business and I hope to reach out to Alabama companies as well as others visiting our state to help them grow through unique golfing experiences for their employees, top executives, sales staff, and clients." Renaissance Ross Bridge is committed to maintaining its status as the top Birmingham, Alabama convention center hotel.
While Buha is a native of Farmington Hills, Mich., his wife is from Alabama and the couple always knew they would eventually call Alabama home. "While the competitiveness and notoriety of being on tour and winning a Nationwide championship was the experience of a lifetime, I always knew that the life of a professional golfer wouldn't allow me to commit completely to my family, which has always been first," Buha said. "Being able to stay connected intimately with golf and do it from home here in Alabama is a wonderful opportunity."
