Sanford POWER GOLF Academy opening in Fargo

Academy opening in newly renovated Austad’s Golf


nullGolfers of all ages will soon have a new opportunity to shave a few strokes off of their game.

The Sanford POWER Golf Academy, the most comprehensive golf program in the region, is coming to Fargo. The academy will open later this year inside the newly renovated Austad’s Golf, 4474 23rd Ave. S., Fargo. In addition, the Austad’s renovation also includes the doubling of the number of hitting bays, allowing for up to four custom fittings at a time, as well as a second putting green.

“We are excited to bring our love and knowledge for the game of golf to the Fargo-Moorhead community,” said Todd Kolb, director of sports academies. “We are grateful for our partnership with Austad’s Golf to give golfers of all ages and skill levels this all-encompassing experience.”

This is the second Sanford Sports Academy to open in Fargo; joining The Sanford POWER Basketball Academy which opened in October 2018. The Sanford POWER Golf Academy will utilize the Sanford POWER program, whose goal is to improve athletic performance by stressing the principles of proper functional movement through customized programming based on an individual’s specific needs and includes board-certified sports physical therapists.

Sam Vosler, Sanford POWER Golf Academy director, will oversee all activities related to the Fargo golf academy, in addition to his responsibilities at the Sioux Falls academy. Sam has been with Sanford Sports for over three years and is recognized by Golf Digest as one of the best instructors in the region. Sanford Sports also operates a golf academy in Irvine, Calif. which opened in March 2021.
