JR. Golf


The Junior Performance Program was specifically designed for local junior golfers ages 5 to 17 years old who are looking to take their game to the next level and beyond.

Director of Instruction Todd Southard has developed this program so juniors can begin to prepare themselves for competition golf. We use our philosophy to teach them how to play and compete rather than merely how to swing. Our junior golfers learn how to prepare for junior tournaments, junior high and high school golf.

This program is open to a limited number of juniors. The JPP program starts in March and runs through November. Any make-up classes will be in December.

Copper Program: beginner -- Saturdays 2:00-3:00p
Bronze Program: beginner -- Saturdays 4:00-5:00p
Silver Program: intermediate -- Saturdays 3:00-4:00p
Gold Program: advanced -- Wednesdays & Fridays 3:45-5:15p
Platinum Program: advanced plus -- Wednesdays & Fridays 3:45-5:15p

Here are some of the essential elements we will cover:

Full swing (swing mechanics)
Video analysis
Short game (chipping, pitching, putting, bunker Play)
Equipment evaluation
Swing drills
Practice technique
Golf psychology
Golf fitness
Course management
How to prepare for tournaments
