"Trust in the Lord, and do good"
“A Swing for Life" Golf Academy is located on the premises of Scott Greens Golf Club. The academy is celebrating its 26th year of offering high level golf instruction to many ADULT, COLLEGE, HIGH SCHOOL, and JUNIOR level players in the NEPA area.
Clinics are offered periodically throughout the season for beginner women and young juniors. As well as short game clinics for novice players. We also have instructors working under Scotty's directed.
The ASFL program is developed and taught by instructor Scotty McAlarney, 5-time TOP 100 W.G.T.F. Instructor and member of the International PGA. This program has graduated many of the finest junior and adult players in our area, with some of our students moving on to their own careers in the golf industry, including right here at our ASFL Golf Academy.

golf students of my own”. Eric Steindel, former student, Head P.G.A. Golf Professional Eric Steindel
