Junior Golf Program (Designed for Young Golfers)
The Junior Golf program is designed to introduce young golfers to the game in a fun, yet educational environment. All aspects of the game are covered including putting, chipping, bunker play, full swing, rules and, most importantly, safety along with golf etiquette. Golf is a sporting activity that juniors can enjoy and compete in throughout their whole lives. There are many aspects of the game that have a direct correlation to things in everyday life. If some of these things can be instilled at a young age, a person has a better chance in becoming a good golfer as well as a well-rounded person.
