The Sawmill Junior Experience

TRY Golf U7

Welcome to the "TRY Golf U7" program, designed to introduce beginners to the game at a foundational 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!!  This program offers a fun and engaging environment for skill and confidence building.

Participants will enjoy team-based games that focus on developing essential golf techniques such as putting, chipping, pitching, and full swings. Our expert instructors will cover the basics of a proper setup, including grip, stance, and posture, while emphasizing balance and movement.

In addition to honing golf skills, we provide an overview of the game itself, including simple rules and common etiquette. Our goal is to enhance kids' fitness and coordination in a safe and enjoyable setting. Join us for a modern and dynamic approach to introducing your child to the world of golf!

To progress to the "TRY Golf U9/U13" level, children should showcase a solid grasp of fundamental elements like grip, stance, and posture, along with a commendable proficiency in putting, chipping, and full swings.  We want to make sure they've got a good overall grasp of the game before they level up. This way, we can keep building their golf skills in a fun and progressive manner.
