Thursday session will be focused on improving skills using drills and games to keep it fun. Testing will be held every 6-8 weeks during class to graduate juniors who are ready to advance to the next level.
Saturday sessions will be an opportunity to test our skills and get to know the rules, etiquette and playing formats on the course.
Our Junior Academy will feature the US Kids Golf Program. The U.S. Kids Golf Learning Program is a proven method to introduce golf to young players. The program becomes more difficult as players advance through each of the three levels, and the Level 1, 2 and 3 booklets provide the framework for both coaches and parents.
The booklets provide instruction and examples of forms and skills, and each level has checkpoints in five core areas: Putting, Around the Green, Full Swing, Knowledge and Scoring. As an incentive to advance through all the levels, players earn an achievement pin each time they complete one of the checkpoints.
Classes will be sub grouped by age and skill.
Thursdays from 9:00am-10:00am

No matter your skill level, you want to play better golf. In order to lower your scores, you should be playing the right clubs for your swing.
The US Kids Golf measuring stick allows us to fit each junior in a golf set that is right for their height. The measuring stick accommodates heights ranging from 39” to 63.” Using this method, we are able to fit juniors within the nine color sections and two different categories, providing them with golf clubs that allow them to excel.
Depending on the skill level and swing speed, we may place them into another category within US Kids Golf, called the Tour Series.
