These traits define the Rick Smith and Jason Guss Golf Academy, one of America’s best. The Rick Smith and Jason Guss Golf Academy is the oldest, continuously operated and most highly acclaimed golf school in Michigan. Founded by Rick Smith and Henry Young, the Academy was established at Treetops in 1990 and has been under the expert guidance of Henry Young, Director of Instruction ever since.

From its inception, the over-riding philosophy of the Academy has been clear GUSS_and_INDOOR_STUDENT.jpgcommunication, quality instruction and individualized attention. Regarding the latter, the Rick Smith Golf Academy is the only school in the nation to have a 2:1 student/teacher ratio in Golf Magazine’s first “Top 25″ ranking.

In one issue when the rankings were placed in order, the Rick Smith Golf Academy placed 7th ahead of notable schools lead by David Leadbetter, Hank Haney, Jim McLean and Butch Harmon. There are multiple factors in determining this award, but the major contributing factor is student feedback. We’re proud that our past students are our best marketing tool.

Innovation – This academy has long been revered in the golf industry as THE place to learn from the best. However, the world class instructors do not rest on their laurels. The academy continually reinvents itself with the game’s latest technology including TrackMan, V1 Software, TOMI Putting Systems and all of the games latest training aids.
