About the Academy
Established in 2003, the Johnny Warren Golf Academy (JWGA) is embarking on new and exciting things. Johnny Warren has always loved to teach golf and share his knowledge of the game with his students. While working as a club professional and giving instruction since 1975, Johnny spent much of his time studying and learning about the golf swing from many great teachers. He has been a member of the PGA of America since 1987, but before moving to Tennessee Grasslands, he realized that his teaching clientele was growing very rapidly and his demand for teaching was skyrocketing. It was then that he decided to devote his full time to teaching the game of golf, so he constructed a small indoor/outdoor facility in Old Hickory, Tennessee. These building years proved to be fruitful, for he was gaining a good reputation among the surrounding areas as one of the regions top golf instructors, winning various awards and seeing great success from his students.

When the opportunity arose to build a more efficient, state of the art facility at Tennessee Grasslands, Johnny accepted the opportunity. The 1,200 square foot heated facility allows students to obtain great instruction during the most adverse of weather conditions. Now equipped with the finest facilities, an outstanding teaching staff, and the latest technology in swing analysis, it seems as though the sky is the limit for the JWGA.

Golfers of all skill levels and ages can come to the JWGA and find great golf instruction year-round. Tennessee Grasslands provides beautiful views of Old Hickory Lake, which surrounds the Bill Bergin designed championship golf course. Its relaxed atmosphere and comfortable setting make it a perfect fit for any person wanting to learn or improve their game. Private lessons and/or group clinics are offered year-round at the JWGA.

“Johnny takes great pride in ensuring that each and every student that comes to the academy fully understands how to make their golf game excel to the next level. Communicating to his students is one of his many great assets. He can make the seemingly most complex problem very simple. That is an essential skill to have when you look at the great diversity of his students.” -Sarah Jacobs (College All-American and Future Tour Player)
