Honours Golf adds top golf instruction programs to three Honours Golf Facilities

April 7, 2010 – Birmingham, Alabama – Honours Golf and Destin, Florida-based, Dewsweepers Golf School have joined together to provide top-level golf instruction programs to help golfers improve their game and make it more enjoyable.  These new programs will start this month and throughout the year at selected Honours properties which include:  Rock Creek Golf Club in located in Fairhope, Alabama; Craft Farms located in Gulf Shores, Alabama; and Highland Park Golf Course located in Birmingham, Alabama.

“We are excited about the addition of the Dewsweepers’ golf instruction programming to our facilities,” stated Honours’ Vice President of Operations, Joe Zaleski.  “It will help strengthen our growing the game of golf initiatives for our members and guests.”

The overall golf instruction programs will be spearheaded by Lead Instructors, Tony Ruggiero and Wayne Flint.  For the past seven years Ruggiero has been with the Hank Johnson School of Golf in Destin, Florida.  Ruggiero has become one the top golf instructors along the Florida Panhandle and in the Southeast.  His students include players on the PGA Tour, Champions Tour, and the top junior players in the country. Ruggiero also hosts the nationally syndicated golf instruction radio program - The Dewsweepers.  Many of the lessons and tips discussed during this radio show will be implemented in the new golf instruction curriculum for Honours Golf.

Wayne Flint, who is the director of instruction at Highland Park Golf Course and a lead golf instructor for the Dewsweepers Golf School, will train certified PGA instructors in the new curriculum.  Flint will ensure that every student receives the fundamentally sound and easy to understand instruction that will help them improve their golf game and sharpen their skills.

These new player development programs are open to golfers of all skill levels.  Students will have access to information and tips that will make the game simple, less confusing and more enjoyable, along with assistance to help them play better and faster.   Some of the topics featured in the curriculum will include swing mechanics, fundamentals of the short-game, specialty shots, course management, and mental conditioning.

Dewsweepers Golf Schools will offer a complete menu of programs to include Adult Developmental Clinics, Ladies’ Clinics, Beginner and Intermediate Junior Programs, as well as a Junior Development Program for the more advanced junior golfer.  Clinics will range from sixty minutes to two hours and have a maximum of twelve to one student-to-teacher ratio.  The ongoing clinics will be held weekly at each of the selected Honours properties.  Students may participate weekly, monthly or periodically.

Dewsweepers Golf School and Honours properties will also offer customized group instruction programs and first-class private instruction complete with video and computer analysis which will allow the student to take home a program for long-term improvement and continued motivation.

Prices vary from program to program.  For more information regarding any of these programs please call the Dewsweepers Golf School at (800) 203-4885 or  You may also visit each club’s website for dates and registration:,, and
