Headed up by Keith Bach, director of golf instruction, and Danielle Dunn, fitness director, the H3 golf fitness and nutrition program helps guests refine their eating habits and improve their game with classes that include Pilates for Flexibility, Golf Conditioning and yoga.
Personal trainers target the individual needs of participants to improve core strength, increase overall flexibility and enhance balance. Stays include a health assessment, unlimited access to more than 20 fitness classes each day, group discussions, balanced meals, seminars and cooking demonstrations. Meanwhile, Bach focuses on fundamental swing theory for golfers at the Golf School, along with the technical needs of each participant. Daily sessions on the course help translate theory into practice, with the additional option of private lessons, group golf clinics and three-day golf schools. Executive Chef Jennifer Welper, who has a culinary nutrition degree from Johnson and Wales University and who earned her Certified Executive Chef status via the American Culinary Federation, oversees the food program of gourmet spa cuisine.
Accommodations at the 800-acre gated resort, located within Shipyard Plantation, range from private rooms to two- and three-bedroom condos. Program dates are year round and vary in price with number of days.
