*Registration for PLAY Golf is now open for all players. Please ensure there is availability in the sesson you want BEFORE registering.
Our “PLAY GOLF” program is designed to improve on already acquired golf skills and get kids playing in a weekly league. If your junior can competently play 9 holes from forward tees and shoot approximately 50 or less, by the rules, then this is the place for them! Students should now have a good understanding of the correct setup fundamentals and golf swing positions. We also expect they have the desire and motivation to take their game to the next level through practice and regular attendance. Players will have a weekly lesson and compete in an organized 9 hole Junior League that will enhance their skills, while learning about rules, etiquette, course management and sportsmanship. While safety and fun are always a focus, kids should also begin to enjoy the competitive aspect of the game.
For a junior to advance to the “PERFORMANCE TEAM”, they must demonstrate the ability to play a round in a predetermined number of strokes, be committed to practicing or playing 3 times per week, show interest in playing in local competitive junior events, and be selected by the coach.
