"Trust in the Lord, and do good"

~Psalms 37:3

“A Swing for Life" Golf Academy is located on the premises of Scott Greens Golf Club. The academy is in its 23rd year of offering clinics - including those for WOMEN and JUNIORS, winter golf programs, workshops, and academy memberships.  What began as an indoor golf program has slowly evolved into a full-fledged golf academy. Approximately 75 to 100 students - both adults and juniors – enroll in the golf program every year.

The ASFL program is developed and taught by instructor Scotty McAlarney. 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.

          “As a fellow instructor, I apply the concepts and drills that Scotty has taught me with

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

Since 1996, our academy has achieved over 125 tournament wins and counting, among our former and present junior, high school, college, mid-amatuer, and senior students. Over 60 - 1st & 2nd team All-Stars and All-Regional status.

In 2015, we had 4 students qualifing for the PIAA State Championship with 1 finishing in the Top 10. Presently, 7 PGA or other affiliate teaching professionals have come through our academy.

A Swing for Life Golf Academy has given thousands of dollars to our scholarship fund to award scholarships every year to a few full-time academy students moving on to college.


Scotty serves as Director of Golf for Scott Greens Golf Club as well as for the Golf Academy. Numerous articles have been published on his teaching style and system – a system which Scotty and his instuctors implement on a daily basis.

Scotty’s background and studies on the “mental approach” to golf - combined with his vast knowledge of “healthy” teaching methods gives the academy and its students “a swing for life."
