The Sawmill Junior Experience

TRY GOLF

*Click here for information on new and used junior clubs, plus the trade-in program.

“TRY GOLF” program introduces beginners to the game at a basic level.  If your child has never golfed before or has minimal experience (like the driving range, mini putt, etc) then this is the place for them!!  Kids will participate in FUN team-based games that build skills and confidence!  These games will develop fundamentals in putting, chipping, pitching and full swings.  We’ll teach the basics of a proper setup (grip, stance, posture) and then work on balance and movement.  We’ll also provide an overview of the game of golf, simple rules, and common etiquette.  We aim to improve kids’ fitness and coordination while having fun and staying safe.  The U9 and U13 age groups will play the par 3 holes on our short course.  

For a child to advance to the “LEARN GOLF” level, they must demonstrate a good understanding of the setup (like grip, stance, posture) and show enough competence in putting, chipping, pitching and full swings to enable them to play a few holes on the course.
