BGGA La Loma is a full-time junior golf academy in San Luis Potosi, Mexico working in conjunction with Arete School. Together they develop the student’s golf game as well as equipping each student with the skills they need to grow academically and physically. The best word that describes the program at BGGA La Loma is “individual.” We do not give multiple students the same program because everyone has different strengths, tendencies, experiences, and areas of improvement. Therefore, we provide an environment that allows each student to be his or her very best in a consistent atmosphere.
