Learning the 9 core values of Respect, Courtesy, Responsibility, Honesty, Sportsmanship, Confidence, Judgement and Integrity help our students achieve success on the golf course, at home, in school and in life.
Kids learn about healthy habits of play, energy and safety which will help them learn how to keep their body healthy and strong.
Our youth start in the PLAYer level and can progress to the Par, Birdie, Eagle and Ace levels by exhibiting the core values in life as well as improving their golf skills and proficiency on the golf course.
We know how important it is to learn by doing. We have weekly activities that work on distance control, target awareness, centeredness of contact, etc...not just playing golf or hitting balls on the range. You might see us working with soccer or footballs, hula hoops, tennis balls and even SNAG plastic golf equipment just to get our point across in a different manner. It works because they have fun and don't always know when they are learning.
We run two sessions during the year for about 11 weeks with 10 classes in that time frame. One class in the Spring starts usually the end of February or early March and our second session is after summer beginning right after schools starts in mid August. Each class runs on Thursdays from 4-5:30 pm.
