Feature: Faldo to open golf academy

The international reputation of Lough Erne Resort reaches another peak in September when six-time Major champion Nick Faldo opens his unique golf academy of excellence for golfers of all ages and abilities.

The Faldo Academy, in County Fermanagh, Ireland, is an innovative establishment in golf education that will attract enthusiasts from all over Europe and beyond to learn the meticulous principles and approach to the game that made Faldo Britain’s most successful golfer of modern times.

Yet the Faldo doctrine of dedication to self-improvement will be combined with a sense of fun to all the students who attend the wide variety of instructional courses from a team of experienced and qualified PGA professionals based at the stunning Northern Ireland resort on the outskirts of Enniskillen by the shores of Lough Erne.

The exciting prospect has already prompted experts to predict that The Faldo Academy will become one of the foremost teaching establishments in the world of golf as it attracts not only golf-for-fun enthusiasts but also highly skilled exponents seeking to reach the next level.

Unquestionably the most successful golfer so far to benefit from the Faldo influence is Rory McIlroy, who in his junior days was spotted when he won a Faldo Series tournament before going on to establish himself as one of the world’s leading golfers and now representing Lough Erne Resort at tournaments around the world.

“A great place to stay and play,” is the 21-year-old’s view of the resort.
