The luxurious La Cantera Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas is the newest location for the popular Dave Pelz Scoring Game School, known as the foremost brand in short game and putting improvement. Pelz’s corporate headquarters has been in Central Texas since the 1980’s, but starting October 15, La Cantera will be the first Texas property to offer Dave Pelz’s full array of instructional offerings. La Cantera is managed by Troon.

La Cantera has world-class golf, gorgeous accommodations and an incredible approach to hospitality. We hope our students who visit La Cantera have as much fun there as we will giving schools and clinics at the state-of-the-art teaching academy.”

Built in 1999, La Cantera, a AAA Four-Diamond-rated resort is home to a 506-room luxury hotel(soon to undergo a multimillion-dollar transformation), two acclaimed 18 hole championship golf courses, six pools, a full service spa and health club, tennis amenities, unique dining and supervised children’s and teen clubs. The resort is conveniently adjacent to Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and the newest luxury retail destination, The Shops at La Cantera.

“We are truly thrilled to welcome Pelz Golf to La Cantera, says Director of Golf Steve Shields. “This is just another truly elite program we can add to our list of learning experiences we provide for our golfing guests.”

Expert instructors from the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School will kick off their Signature program, the Three-Day School and One-Day Clinic offerings in October at the La Cantera Academy, located at the back end of the spacious driving range on La Cantera’s Resort Course, former host of the Valero Texas Open. Pelz, commonly known as the ‘short game guru’ advises top professionals including five-time major winner Phil Mickelson, says “How you play inside of 100 yards determines how you’ll score. Eighty percent of the shots lost to par happen inside of that range. My staff will teach you the shots and skills you need to improve your handicap and, more importantly, the methods you need to continue improving.

“It’s gratifying that we’ve helped top players improve and have success(10 of Pelz’s pro students have won a total of 20 majors), but the weekend players deserve to have fun playing the game too,” Pelz added. “That’s why we bring short game and putting instruction to amateurs. They have the most to gain.” Dave Pelz Schools in the Southeast include Boca Raton Resort, PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens and Chateau Elan just north of Atlanta.
