Palace Resorts takes golf to a new level by bringing the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf to its golf course located at Moon Spa & Golf Club in Cancun.

The Academies give guests the opportunity to improve their game regardless of their skills’ level. Students can learn firsthand the techniques and playing philosophy of Jack Nicklaus under the guidance of certified instructors and with integrated state-of-the art technology.

Moon Palace Spa & Golf Resort, home to 27 holes of Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf, features a special indoor Jack Nicklaus Coaching Studio that incorporates a fully integrated Nicklaus Academy analysis package of high-speed video, pressure/balance mat and launch monitor with the addition of a full golf simulator. The Coaching Studio is fully self-contained inside the Moon Palace clubhouse / pro shop and also features a TOMI putting lab. The Moon Palace Nicklaus Academy will accommodate private instruction, club fitting as well as an indoor golf experience with the full simulator.

Each facility also feature expansive outdoor driving ranges with both natural and artificial turf tee-lines and well-designed short game areas that are ideal for private and group instruction programs.

Palace Resorts has implemented a new and innovative instruction offering to attract resort guests that are new to the game or want to fine-tune certain aspects of their overall game. “Welcome to Golf” is a 2-hour group clinic that introduces “never-evers” to the game of golf in a fun and non-intimidating manor. The basic fundamentals that are the basis for the Nicklaus Philosophy are taught to each participant in an effective 4:1 student to teacher ratio. The “Short Game & Scoring Clinic” is another 2-hour group clinic that focuses the students’ attention on shots hit from 100 yards and in. From proper impact and alignment to distance control, accuracy and proper club selection, the instructors work with the students to shave strokes off their score. The “Nicklaus Driving School” rounds out the group offering by focusing on getting the most of the students’ ability off the tee. Distance, accuracy and consistency are improved, as well as a better understanding of how to properly deliver the clubhead efficiently to the ball.

Palace Resort guests can apply a portion their Resort Credit toward the above three group instruction offerings. Additional instruction options including private sessions, on-course playing lessons, corporate group and clinics, special junior camps and custom club fittings are available as well for a fee to both Palace guests as well as students from other properties and local residents.
