PGA Junior Golf Academy

26 Years Growing Golf in Northern Connecticut!

For 26 years our mission has been to introduce and support the greatest game ever played - so many golfers have engaged in our prorgrams that we have lost count!   We are thrilled to have been of service to our local communities for all of this time, and we love the game as much as we ever have!,  We have accumulated a large 'toolbox' of skills building games that are a blast to play and teach technique and strategy below the surface. Whatever level your child wants to take golf to - social, recreational, or competitive, we can take them there.  Come see 2018 Connecticut Section PGA  "Player Development Award" winner Paul Banks and join the fun!

All players 9-13 and under (younger with permission) are eligible to participate in the PGA Junior Golf League TRAVEL TEAM (9-14 in Spring)

While the emphasis is always on fun, we have the knowledge and instruments behind the scenes if we need them. There is a computerized putting analysis system (tomi.com) and an indoor/outdoor simulator which helps our students to graphically learn what causes errant shots.

Our programs will help juniors to learn golf, but enjoy the process. The Junior Golf Academy at Copper Hill will focus on the following:

  • Fitness for Golf (and sport in general)
  • Golf Skills
  • Sportsmanship, Etiquette and Rules
  • Golf Course and 'Near Golf' Experiences
  • Assessments - How am I doing?

Each of the above areas will be addressed in each of our programs at age and skill appropriate levels. Each player will have an assessment (optional) to give them the direction necessary to know where to improve.

In addition to the information that is provided to the kids, there will be a parent resource to help parents better understand the motivation behind our programs and to help parents be in the best position for the development of their golfer.
