The Palmer Golf Institute presents its golf curriculum in a stimulating format, using sound and simple golf principles and deep practice techniques to accelerate learning and improvement. Located at the beautiful Olympic View Golf Club, just 20 minutes from beautiful downtown Victoria, BC. The Palmer Golf Institiute is open 12 months a year in the most golf friendly climate in Canada. At the PGI we offer a wide array of golf learning programs that promote growth through the great game of golf, specializing in Corporate Programs, Women Only, Elite Junior, Golf Fitness and Individual One on One Coaching Programs.
The approach to programming at the Palmer Golf Institute is based on the teaching of four main learning pillars: technique, dynamic motion, mental clarity and spiritual well being. Student assessments and balanced coaching in these focus areas promote expedited learning, translating to better results on the practice range and golf course. The PGI uses statistical data capture and student mental profiling in designing learning programs and our students have competed and placed highly in such events as the Callaway World Junior at Torrey Pines and the HSBC Junior Invitational in China.

Jeff Palmer is the Director of Instruction of the Palmer Golf Institute. Over the past 20 years, Jeff has traveled the world working at some of the finest golf facilities in North America and China. He has established golf academies in Hawaii, Ontario and China coaching players of all levels, helping them to develop their golfing skills but also inspiring them to thoroughly enjoy the game. Jeff is also a dedicated player having played in various tour events in North America and Asia including the 2002 Volvo China Open.
Jeff was able to quickly identify some challenges that I was having with my fundamentals and swing. He had me address my alignment and swing arc and assigned me the most amazingly effective practice drills which helped me to remember and implement these changes quickly. I soon started playing golf at a level which I had not since a very long time ago. Jeff, and the Palmer Golf Institute, was instrumental to my success in finishing in the top five at the Alfred Dunhill Championship at St. Andrews last year. I highly recommend the Palmer Golf Institute as a place for learning golf
