The Links at Stoney Point at Lake Greenwood is the proud home of the Tommy Pendley Golf Academy.
Jim Medford, the Club’s owner, endorses this move as a commitment to the next generation of golfers. Pendley is a well-known golf teacher and professional in the Upstate. He is also the director of the Piedmont Junior Golf Association, a chapter of the South Carolina Junior Golf Association that serves Abbeville, Greenwood, Laurens, Saluda, Edgefield and Newberry counties.
Pendley makes full use of The Links facility to help train students from the ages of 5 to 90. “I have my serious high school and college kids in the weight room working,” he said. “That’s going to really add to the program and to my teaching ability, to get more flexibility and more strength, because that is a huge, huge part of this game.”
The Golf Academy offers private, semi-private and group lessons and clinics for beginners through advanced players.
