Cost $99/Month
When: Mondays at 5:30 and/or Fridays at 4:30

You are probably wondering a little bit about what goes into a golf program, for 5, and 6 year olds. Here is a little preview of what you’ll be seeing:

-Movement, and lots of it.
-Oversized golf clubs hitting what appear to be tennis balls.
-Non golf games
-Time for creativity
-Organized Mayhem

With this in mind, our main goals in the program are:

-Learning about the course and how to care for it
-Building athletic/fundamental movements
-Create a love for golf and have an interest to explore it further (for some it may be right away, for some it might be down the line where they remember golf being cool)

Level 1: Drive, Chip, Putt Ages 7 - 12

Class time: 30 minutes, can sign up for multiple classes
$50 per session/month

Step one for most juniors is to first learn basic golf skills before heading on course. Our program breaks these skills down into 3 categories: Drive, Chip, Putt.

Students can register for 30 minute classes based on the skill they need to work on. Passed each category they get to graduate to our Level 2: Learn to Play program!

For some students, it may take months/years of class to become proficient enough to graduate. All athletes progress at their own pace and we are here to encourage them as they develop. We expect this and recommend students continue to register throughout the year to acquire the skills they need to hit the course!

Level 1: Girls ONLY Golf Ages 7 - 13

Class time: 60 mins
Cost: $99/Month
When: Fridays @ 5:30pm

Sometimes a barrier for junior girls looking to take up the game is not always golf related. Sometimes it is not having the right atmosphere and feeling part of a team of people who are similar minded. The Girls ONLY Golf program is designed around making sure the learning environment is both fun and has a large focus on making new friends.
