As The Gecko Elite Golf Academy enters its final Programme the Directors reflect upon a very successful first season. Enrollments have exceeded expectation.
The 83rd Portugese International Amateur Championship was played a Montado over 4 rounds (February 13-16).
The Gecko Elite Golf Academy member Harry Casey finishes 3rd at The Portugese Amateur Open. Harry was 7 under par with scores of 74, 71, 69 and a sensational final round of 67.
There were other notable performances from The Gecko Pro Tour elite amateurs:-
Henry Featherstone finished 14th on 1 under and Luke Johnson finished 23rd at +1.
At The Gecko Elite Golf Academy, we understand that good technical skills aligned with natural talent & ability alone is no guarantee of success in the highly competitive world of professional golf.
In our opinion, additional ingredients that include passion, determination, hard work and a stubborn drive for excellence are also prerequisites to be a winner in golf as it is for anyone striving to reach the top in their chosen profession.
The Gecko Elite Golf Academy aims to combine all these elements within a structured programme to provide players with a solid platform to attain their maximum potential in golf.
The Gecko Elite Golf Academy is seeking to attract talented young golf professionals as well as a number of low-handicap Amateurs who are preparing to turn professional in the near future.
On account of the word "elite" in our name, the selection process to join the academy will be subject to certain checks in addition to an assessment discussion.
Candidates will need to convince our selection team that they possess the energy, passion and determination to succeed in the sport and also demonstrate a recent track record of improving performance on the golf course.
