Château Élan Winery & Resort

Nestled within lush vineyards and rolling countryside in the north Georgia foothills (just 40 minutes north of Atlanta), Château Élan Winery & Resort (100 Rue Charlemagne, Braselton, Georgia 30517) is a one-of-a-kind luxury golf and leisure retreat. And, now, the newest location of the Dave Pelz Scoring Game School, offering one-, two- and three-day programs on the short game and putting.

At the center of this magnificent 3,500-acre resort is the grand 16th-century-style chateau that is actually a full-production winery and the largest producer of premium wines in Georgia (Château Élan has been recognized by Wine Spectator for exceptional vintages). The luxurious 290-room and suite Château Élan Inn captures the feeling of a French country estate not only in its architectural style, but in the resort’s commitment to guest services, personal attention and desire to exceed your fondest expectations.

Château Élan features 63 holes of golf on its award-winning Chateau, Woodlands, Legends and Executives courses. Located near a sparkling lake, surrounded by a canopy of trees, emerald green lawns and flowering shrubs, the 33,000-square-foot Château Élan Spa mansion (complete with private guest suites) exudes style and serenity.

Cooking classes are scheduled year-round with Château Élan’s Executive Chef Marc Suennemann and his team of eight sous-chefs on a variety of international cuisines.

Dave Pelz 3-Day Scoring Game Schools

The Dave Pelz Scoring Game School applies a practical, scientific approach to golf instruction, honed through years of research and providing golf lessons to many of the game’s top professionals.

Pelz Golf Institute research has proven that golfers lose almost 80 percent of their shots to par inside of 100 yards from the hole. To that end, our golf school curriculum focuses strictly on what Dave defines as “The Scoring Game,” a combination of the short game (distance wedges, pitching, chipping, sand play) and putting, which comprise 60 to 65 percent of the total number of shots played per round. From three-foot putts to full wedge and long bunker shots, at this truly unique golf school, you’ll learn to properly execute shots from any scoring position.

The 3-Day Scoring Game School is the premier Dave Pelz-designed golf instruction experience. Incorporating video, feedback devices and the latest Pelz research, these innovative golf schools are designed to help golfers play all the shots on and around the green with confidence and consistency. Much more than a simple "golf lesson", these 3-day golf schools are the most effective and permanent way to lower your handicap.

The student/teacher ratio is 4:1 maximum.

Dave’s philosophy is that golfers should know:

  • What they need to learn to improve.
  • How to learn it.
  • How to internalize and use what they've learned.
Conducted in some of the world’s finest resort locations, Dave Pelz Scoring Game School is designed to equip students with skills and practice techniques that promote a lifetime of lower scores and enjoyment of the game.
