The Wanna Be A Champion Academy at Serengeti Golf & Wildlife Estate strives for success and endeavours to help each and every student achieve their true potential. We look to modernise the way in which golf is taught into a holistic method of learning the game by incorporating all the aspects of performance, including motor skills, psychology, technical skills and physical ability. We use different types of assessments on each golfer, such as 3D-analysis, flight-scope and a

physical body strength and conditioning test. This allows us to plan ahead for the athlete and create a stable structure for the

future. At Wanna Be A Champion, we are focused on providing  coaching and well-being services with the highest levels of customer satisfaction – we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
