Balance Point Golf Schools has twice been chosen by GOLF Magazine as one of the Top 25 Golf Schools in the nation and was also recently included on their list of Best Golf Schools in America.

GOLF Magazine's editors said about Balance Point Golf Schools, "...alumni of the schools told us that their experiences were overwhelmingly positive in helping them to play better golf."

The Top 25 award is the gold standard for excellence in the golf school industry and it is based on positive results achieved by golf school graduates 

as reported to GOLF Magazine's golf school graduate survey. It is also based on "...the quality of the instruction staff and teaching facilities based on survey results from thousands of golf school alumni." GOLF Magazine's instruction editors also singled out Balance Point Golf Schools in the May 1999 issue for special recognition as just one of four golf schools nationwide that "improve the golfer's mind as much as his mechanics." GOLF Magazine called this approach "...the most significant advancement in golf instruction in the past 25 years...alumni of the schools told us that their experiences were overwhelmingly positive in helping them to play better golf."
