SportsQuest opens Golf Academy

MIDLOTHIAN, VA (WWBT) - The first all-inclusive golf academy on the east coast north of Florida is coming to the East Coast. SportsQuest is adding golf to its stable of sports academies.

Students will spent 8 months splitting their time between the SportsQuest campus off Genito Road, and also at the Independence Club in Midlothian.  The students will use the dormitories and training facilities at Independence during the morning and early afternoon, and then head to class on campus in the late afternoon.

SportsQuest will welcome both genders, but will focus on women, because there are so few academies in the country that garner to that demographic. Students in 8th grade or above can attend the academy, and students will be able to get an accredited diploma.

The Academy will start accepting students for the upcoming fall.
