No two golfers are the same. No two swings are either. At Golf Channel Academy, this is one of our approaches to instruction. Our coaches work with students at every skill level and from every background, which means custom instruction is at the heart of what we do. Unique lesson plans and programs built for a variety of students are mainstays at every Golf Channel Academy location.

Whether you’re a high handicapper or a golfer who’s looking to take that next competitive step, our Golf Channel Academy locations are home to coaches who will work with you to build a plan around your needs and goals. From the lessons plans to the content of the lessons themselves, our coaches see customized instruction as the primary benefit of working one-on-one with students. The Golf Academy has a section on our website Click here to learn more about Colby and schedule a lesson!

Wood Wind will soon have a new residential community start construction. There will be two different sections developed. Northwind will be the first section of the community to start which will be on the North side of 161st Street. The neighborhood will have multiple options for builders and designs for you to choose from.

We will continue to update the Living at Wood Wind page with updates about the neighborhood and home builders!

Some of the surrounding neighborhoods will have a Social Membership included in their HOA fees. There will be the option to purchase this offering as well.

Overall, there were 13 students from across Indiana who were awarded scholarships at the January 30th final selection meeting.

Grayson Wittbrod has participated in the Cohoat and O’Neal Caddie Program since 2016. His character and work ethic made him an outstanding applicant and now recipients for the Evans Scholarship. Grayson attends Noblesville High School. He plans to attend Purdue University in the Fall.

The Evans Scholarship, founded and administered by the Chicago-based Western Golf Association in 1930, is available to both young men and women who have worked as caddies, have excellent academic records, possess outstanding character, and have demonstrated the financial need to fund a college education. The Evans Scholarship has 18 house chapters in leading universities across the country.

It’s estimated that after the final selections are completed in April, over 280 new scholarships will be awarded nationwide. Scholarship funds come mainly from contributions by 32,000 golfers across the country who are members of the Evans Scholars Par Club program. Evans Scholars Alumni donate more than $10 million annually, and all proceeds from the BMW Championship, the third of four PGA TOUR Playoff events in the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup competition, are donated to the Evans Scholars Foundation.
