Youth Introduction to Golf

Start Early for a Lifelong Love of the Game

For juniors in the 5-14 age range, our Junior Essentials classes and Half-Day Summer Camps are meant as an introduction to golf, done mostly through gaming stations and non-traditional training techniques.

Our experienced coaches create a detailed curriculum that sparks a desire to learn, an excitement for the game and development of the fundamentals.

A byproduct that comes with participating in this introductory phase, which prioritizes enjoyment more than results, is students meet new friends and continue to mold the proper conduct and behavior that is required in their everyday lives.

The Golf Practice is a proud partner of U.S. Kids Golf.

Junior Essentials II

Building on a Solid Foundation

Junior Essentials II (ages 9-11) is the second level in our Junior Development Series. JE II is for juniors who are interested in continuing to progress as golfers. Through skill-based game playing, drills, and contests, players continue to build their athleticism and golf movement skills while understanding methods and techniques used to move the ball around the course. We equip our juniors with the ability and vocabulary to know what is correct and how to communicate their feelings and ideas.

Classes meet once per week for 60 minutes.

For Ages 12–14

Junior Essentials III

Learning the Finer Points

Junior Essentials III (ages 12-14) helps older juniors to develop their skills. It is designed for players who have a basic understanding of golf and want to take their knowledge and skills to the next level. This program is perfect for the junior who has a desire to improve with an eye toward competitive golf. In this program we also begin to teach our juniors how to practice purposefully, while being aware of their individual swing projects.

Classes meet once per week for 60 minutes.
