First Leadbetter Indoor Golf Academy Opens in Bangkok, Thailand

Leadbetter Golf Academies and Xcite Golf Thailand are launching The Leadbetter Indoor Golf Academy Bangkok, the world’s first completely indoor Leadbetter Golf Academy location. The new state of the art golf academy located in downtown Bangkok combines David Leadbetter’s tour proven golf instruction and training philosophies with unparalleled convenience, technology, and comfort in a modern, climate-controlled indoor facility.

“We’re excited to partner with Xcite Golf in Thailand to launch the world’s first Leadbetter Indoor Golf Academy,” Leadbetter said. “Xcite Golf has a large existing customer base and a great team of instructors; we intend to continue to improve upon their success by offering a whole range of new golf instruction and fitness packages that we use worldwide.”

The Leadbetter Indoor Golf Academy Bangkok is situated in the heart of Sukhumvit, Bangkok at the five-star Marriott Hotel and Executive Serviced Apartments on Sukhumvit Soi 24.

The Academy has twelve certified instructors and instruction can be given in English, Thai and Japanese, as well as twelve golf simulator indoor hitting bays equipped with the latest teaching and training technologies such as Trackman, GC2s, Sam PuttLab, BodiTrack and video replay for every swing. The academy property also includes a state of the art fitness center, outdoor short-game area, and a corporate event zone.

“People today are so busy it’s challenging to find time to properly train and learn golf, especially in large cities, but our new indoor academy model makes training convenient and efficient,” Leadbetter said. “We’ve also known for quite a while that many people who train and practice golf indoors often improve faster because they’re not as consumed with ball flight and can focus more on correcting swing faults rather than ‘grooving’ their same bad habits.”

At the Leadbetter Indoor Academy in Bangkok you’ll enjoy attentive service, warm hospitality and the latest, PGA Tour proven Leadbetter golf teaching methods including video analysis of every swing. LGA Bangkok caters to helping golfers of all levels, from total beginners to tour professionals. Students can take advantage of a variety of lesson and membership packages, including group classes, women’s group lessons, junior programs, bespoke stay and play packages and intensive 5 and 7-day improvement programs.

“Indoors we train our instructors how to properly use cutting-edge teaching technologies and high-speed video cameras to better show students in real time exactly what and how to improve,” said Michael Binninger of Spyglass Holdings, parent company of LGA Bangkok.

Bangkok has fast become one of Asia’s most vibrant cities and Thailand has long been a world-class golfing destination. The Sukhumvit area in the center of Bangkok is also known for high-end shopping malls, hundreds of outstanding restaurants and many four and five-star hotels.

Leadbetter adds, “We are very excited to now offer our complete and holistic golf training programs in Bangkok, one of the world’s great cities and in a country where people are so passionate about golf.”
