BE YOUR BEST SELF.
BGGA inspires student-athletes to be in their best coach.
Character, determination, grit, self-confidence, self-esteem, sociability are character traits are more likely built through sports.
Student-athletes join Bishops Gate Golf Academy to improve their golf and academic skills and give themselves the opportunity to play college and possibly professional golf. At Bishops Gate Golf Academy, we believe that their personal development journey is just as important to give students the mental stamina and perseverance they need to overcome the challenges ahead.
When we espouse that the mission of Bishops Gate Golf Academy is to inspire excellence of golf skill and character in our students, it is not just a statement but a calling that we take very seriously.
As part of our mission, BGGA has developed a full nine-month student development curriculum to educate and encourage students to change, evolve, grow and be a better version of themselves. Building character takes effort and artistry, and the humility and grace to allow yourself to be molded and shaped by life circumstances and your own limitations and weaknesses.
If at the end of their stay at BGGA, students are more humble than proud, more empathetic than self-serving, and more grateful than expectant. They will have started their journey on the road to character. Building character takes a lifetime, but a fulfilled life is created, not given to us, and we craft it by making good decisions and building good habits over time that will serve us well for the rest of our lives.
