Aspen, Co – April 29, 2011 - Aspen Golf Club has partnered with the prestigious Carl Rabito Golf Academy.  The Academy will offer a series of different golf instructional programs for the 2011 season.  Carl Rabito is one of 43 PGA Master Teaching Professionals and a GOLF Magazine Top 100 Teacher.

Steve Aitken, Director of Golf, stated “The addition of Rabito Golf Academy to the Aspen Golf Club has provided another high quality element to our very successful operation.  We look forward to providing top quality instruction for golfers of any skill level.”

The foundation for the methods taught at the Carl Rabito Golf Academy is built upon the anatomical principle that “structure governs function.”  Through these principles, students are successfully taught an anatomically-correct golf swing such that they can become their own teacher.  Rabito has had success with a wide range of players on the PGA, LPGA and Nationwide Tours, as well at all levels of amateur play.  He has frequent bylines in major golf publications and has several guest appearances on the Golf Channel and on XM Satellite Radio.

The Carl Rabito Golf Academy at Aspen Golf Club will offer a combination of individual, group, and multi-day lesson programs for students of all levels and abilities.  In addition, different lesson packages will be available that include video swing analysis, on-course playing lessons, short game and full swing instruction and Red Mountain Grill gift cards.  Discounts are offered for pass holders of the Aspen Golf Club.

Ranked as the #1 Colorado Municipal Golf Course by Golfweek magazine three years in a row, the Aspen Golf Club is located just two minutes from downtown Aspen.  Set in an open links design style with four sets of tees, the course measures 7,156 yards making it one of the longest courses in Colorado & offering a world-class challenge while accommodating all levels of play.

Rabito-trained instructors employ a highly successful system of evaluation: physical ability and limitations, exercises for strength and flexibility, short-term and long-term goals. Instruction consists of basic tenets, concepts and philosophy of the swing; how the body functions in the golf swing; specific instruction for the swing; understanding the dynamics of the swing and golf-specific strength and conditioning. Golfers see results with a more efficient, reputable swing, a customized blueprint for the swing and a reduced risk of injury. Additional Carl Rabito Golf Academies are operating in Orlando, suburban Chicago, New Orleans, Dallas and Cleveland.
