On April 1, Blue Giraffe Sports will launch its Blue Giraffe Golf Institute at Heritage Golf Links in Tucker. The sports marketing, corporate consulting and talent management firm plans to provide the latest golf instruction and technology for golfers of all skill level.

“It has long been our goal to provide both professional and amateur players with a state of the art facility and top notch instructional opportunities,” Blue Giraffe Executive Vice President Matt Judy said. “We are excited about the opportunity to bring this one of a kind institute to our hometown of Atlanta.”

“Heritage Golf Links is proud to be a partner with Blue Giraffe Sports and we are excited to raise the level of golf instruction in Atlanta,” Heritage Golf Links general manager Adam Owen said. “Heritage Golf Links has always been a great place to improve your game but now with the opening of the institute it will be the premier location for golfers to reach their full potential in the game of golf.”

Clients in the area will receive teaching from the instructors on the level of Kevin Kirk, who teaches out of Texas, Jason Birnbaum, who teaches out of New Jersey, and Mark Blackburn, who does likewise in Alabama.

“The Southeast has always been a hotbed for both professional and amateur golf,” Judy said. “The BGGI will further the game for our region while providing some of the best golf instruction in the world not only for our clients, but for the average golfer as well.”

Blue Giraffe Sports has a relationship with a long list of golfers on the PGA TOUR such as Stuart Appleby, the Tour, LPGA Tour and Champions Tour. The firm also has clients associated with PGA Latino America and PGA Canada.

As far as Heritage Golf Links, the course has 27 holes and one of the highest slope ratings in the state.

“We have an outstanding partner in the team at Heritage Golf Links with a first class facility,” Judy said.
