Bird Golf Academy is proud to announce that The Diplomat Golf Resort & Spa, a world class resort located in Hallandale Beach, Florida, has become its East Coast Flagship site.
"Bird Golf Academy was selected to partner with The Diplomat Golf Resort & Spa due to its long standing dedication to excellence and quality which is synonymous with our core values of exceptional, indigenous experience," says Rick Edwards, Resort Manager for The Diplomat. "The partnership will also bring new players into the Golf Resort that otherwise may not have the knowledge of our Luxury Collection ® brand facility. We look forward to building a lasting quality endeavor of hospitality."
The Diplomat has been a South Florida retreat for decades. This timeless, elegant resort has played host to such luminaries as Bob Hope, Dean Martin and Lawrence Welk who dined, entertained and golfed on its historic grounds. The Diplomat is conveniently located between the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood and Miami International Airports.
The intimate Italian villa-styled clubhouse features 60 richly appointed guest rooms and suites with polished wood floors, traditional patterns, fine furniture and private balconies. Its 18-hole, par-72, 6,800-yard championship course was designed by renowned golf architect Joe Lee. It boasts four par-5 holes and a unique, 570-yard signature island hole, one of the longest in South Florida. The Diplomat also features luxurious locker room facilities and a complete pro shop.
Bird Golf Academy is renowned for its award-winning instructors. The superb teaching staff includes PGA and LPGA professionals, a U.S. Open winner, six members of various Golf Halls of Fame and the founding Teaching Editor of Golf for Women magazine--collectively, the finest staff in the world.
Two outstanding instructors will helm The Diplomat's program. Two-time LPGA championship winner and U.S. Open Champion Mary Mills brings 20 years of teaching experience to the post. Joining her will be Tim Peightal, Bird Golf Academy's East Coast Head professional, who has logged 35 years as a PGA professional.
