ENTRY LEVEL (AGE 5 - 8) A great start to a great game!
An introductory program designed to familiarize golf to kids with little or no golf experience. It is an ideal "first step" in fostering an interest in golf. We attempt to avoid technical instruction in this program, and instead try to capture the interest of the kids with various non-competitive games, drills, and fun learning exercises.
Juniors will finish this program with an understanding of the purpose of the game of golf, some rules and etiquette, and hopefully a desire to continue! The program is one hour (50 minutes)per week for six weeks. Clubs are not required.
