Youth Introduction to Golf

Start Early for a Lifelong Love of the Game

For juniors in the 5-12 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.
