Bird Golf Academy & Wild Horse Pass Resort Extend Partnership

CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The leader in customized golf instruction, Bird Golf Academy, "The Ultimate Golf Learning Experience®," and the WHPDA, owners of the Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa and Whirlwind Golf Club, today announced a 5-year extension to their partnership. 

"We're very proud; Whirlwind is one of our flagship properties, one of the best Troon golf courses in the Valley, and the Bird Golf Academy is among the best golf schools in the nation, with the top instructors available. We're proud to offer a golf school of this caliber," said Barney Enos, Jr., Chairman of the WHPDA Board of Directors.

"Whirlwind and Wild Horse Pass are privileged to be the flagship destination for Bird Golf Academy.  The professional staff provides students with knowledge from decades of playing and teaching at the highest level.  Whirlwind's dedication to growing the game falls in line with the philosophy of Bird Golf, forming a perfect partnership," said Whirlwind General Manager, Marty Hoeffken

Whirlwind Golf Club is Troon Golf's only two-time recipient of the Troon Golf's Facility of the Year in 2004 and 2012. The two Gary Panks designed courses rank among the finest in the Southwest. The facilities Bird Golf students enjoy are unequaled, as students refine their game with private practice areas that include an immaculate driving range, putting green, practice bunkers, and chipping greens.

Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa is one of the most desirable destinations for the discernible traveler.  "We are thrilled to continue with such an accredited, energetic team," said Bill Hunter, Director of Sales & Marketing.
