Jim McLean Golf School moves to SunRidge Canyon

FOUNTAIN HILLS, ARIZ. – SunRidge Canyon Golf Club announced today that it will be home to a new Jim McLean Golf School, with a full complement of game-improving instruction programs and packages available to students beginning in mid November 2011.

“Jim McLean certainly has built an impressive resume over the years as a player, instructor and author,” said Jeff Lessig, General Manager of SunRidge Canyon Golf Club. “We look forward to building a strong relationship between our organizations to provide a solid venue for golfers to learn the game at the best school available.”

The instruction facility will be located on SunRidge Canyon’s practice facility with a permanent structure to be built in 2012 to house the school. McLean’s stable of Lead Master, Master and Certified Instructors will begin accommodating students sometime mid November with frequent visits from McLean as his calendar permits.

“We’re anxious to get started at SunRidge Canyon,” said Jim McLean. “We have been meaning to establish a school in the Scottsdale area for some time now. After a number of site visits by our team, SunRidge Canyon quickly made its way to the top of the list. The combination of great facilities located in a uniquely beautiful setting ultimately swayed our decision in their favor.”

Much like its counterparts throughout the world, the Jim McLean Golf School at SunRidge Canyon will draw students from across the U.S. and the world, a perfect match given that the Scottsdale/Fountain Hills area is already a popular destination for golf vacationers. To accommodate travelers, CopperWynd Resort and Club, located adjacent to SunRidge Canyon, will serve as the preferred lodging partner, with many other lodging options available as well.

“We graciously welcome the opportunity to host Jim McLean Golf School students,” said Neil Ginsberg, Manager, CopperWynd Resort and Club. “The participants will find their stay at CopperWynd to be a unique and intimate Sonoran desert experience. We’re happy to provide them with a comfortable home base where they can relax, refuel and get a good night’s sleep after great day at the golf school.”
