The Sawmill Junior Experience

LEARN Golf

Welcome to the "LEARN Golf” program, tailored for intermediate players eager to elevate their foundational skills and develop correct swing technique with more consistent ball striking. If your child has had prior lessons or played occasionally and can confidently navigate 3 to 5 holes (from the junior tees on the BIG course) then this program is the perfect next step for them!

Participants in this program will refine their setup fundamentals and develop proper swing positions. Through engaging activities and friendly competitions, players will explore various shots with all the clubs in their bag. This dynamic approach not only hones their skills but also deepens their understanding of golf rules and etiquette. Even as they progress, the emphasis remains on FUN while enhancing golf proficiency within a safe environment.

To advance to the “PLAY Golf” level, junior players are required to showcase the ability to competently play 9 holes while adhering to basic rules and etiquette. We look forward to guiding your young golfer towards greater mastery and enjoyment of the game.
