Junior Golf Program:
Junior Golf Lessons are designed to introduce and promote the game of golf to Junior golfers of all abilities. Our goal is to provide a fun and enjoyable learning environment that will stimulate interest in the game. Juniors will learn the importance of rules and etiquette, as well as the basics of the golf swing and the game. All areas of the game are taught, including putting, chipping, irons and woods.
- Make sure the child wants to do it, not just the parents.
- Don't send kids out too young. Make sure the child can hold a golf club securely and won't lose balance when they swing.
- Make sure that the instructor makes it fun.
- Make sure that any series of lessons provides instruction to all phases of the game.
- The size, strength, and age of a player doesn't matter.
- Don't expect too much too soon.
